It definitely could be worse though. I had to suppress a chuckle every time Boston played at the FleetCenter. Fleet is the leading manufacturer of enemas. It seemed incredibly fitting that the Celtics home games were hosted by the makers of a product to clean your ass out.
You're making too big of a deal out of this. Lacoste has the alligators, and see plenty of people of all types wear Lacoste cause it is a marker of status. Kanye, as well as a bunch of other "hip-hop" icons, wear Lacoste all the time. Each polo is around $75 retail so it's no joke. I wouldn't throw away gifts that cost that much.
As for Izod, you may be right about the merger, but there is an obvious difference in price. It's like wearing Old Navy clothes and trying to front like it's Banana Republic. Might be the same head company-I have no idea- but there is definitely a different level of prestige.
