Ralph Lauren has joined the relief effort in Japan by selling special edition “Japan Hope” polo shirts. Polo Ralph Lauren linked up with the United Way, with 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the limited edition polo shirts donated to the humanitarian effort through the Central Community Chest of Japan, a part of the United Way worldwide network.

Trim, modern fit in cotton mesh, the specially designed polo shirts are finished with the iconic, embroidered pony at the left chest, applied flag and embroidered “Japan Relief” at the right chest. Embroidered “Japan”, “Ralph Lauren” and “United Way Worldwide” logo at the back. If you are a Polo fan, then this is ideal – and you are helping out a good cause. It’s a cool way to enjoy a nice shirt and also give back to Japan.

The Japan Hope Polo Shirt comes in two styles, the Japan Hope Skinny-Fit and the Japan Hope Custom-Fit, and in two different colors – white & navy blue (His & hers).

Hackett London also launched a limited edition polo shirt to help the victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. All profits are donated to the Japan Society “Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund”. The polo shirt has been designed with traditional Japanese embroidery of the cherry blossom which is an emblem of love and affection. The declaration of ‘Hope’ is embroidered on the polo in English and Japanese characters.
