Flair, elegance, fair play and stylistic research: these are the distinguishing traits of U.S. Polo Assn.’s brand. The United States Polo Association (USPA), the governmental organization for the sport of polo in the United States since 1890, officially recognizes the U.S. Polo Assn.’s products. The initial range of sportswear apparel for men, women and children has expanded to include accessories, travel items, watches, shoes, home furniture and many other items.

Nowadays the brand is represented in 135 countries through independent stores, online stores and U.S. Polo Assn. flagship stores. The main inspiration for the U.S. Polo Assn.’s lifestyle has always been the game of polo, which shares a profound connection with the brand, constantly strengthening during important events such as the main polo tournaments in which U.S. Polo Assn. participates as sponsor. On the occasion of the Monte-Carlo Polo Cup, U.S. Polo Assn. is the technical sponsor, manufacturing the shirts for the competing teams and playing the field by facing the agonistic challenge and elegantly supporting the players’ personality. The passion for the game of polo and the magic of the Cup go beyond the borders of the playing field: the team shirts can be purchased in the U.S. Polo Assn. corner located on the sidelines.The apparel sector of U.S. Polo Assn.’s brand is managed through licensing by the historic Incom Group from Montecatini Terme (Italy).
