Default Why Is Having a Porsche Polo Shirts Frown Upon?

Before I acquired my Porsche CS 2014 (my first ever Porsche)...I saw on YouTube what not to do with your Porsche and one of them was never ever wear a clothing with Porsche in it, unless you work for the dealer or something. Really? Any thoughts on this? Reason being is that I actually created a Polo Shirt for myself that has the word PORSCHE on the chest and silhouette of the Cayman with the Cayman S underneath the silhoutte. Just wanted what everyone's take on this. Will post pictures soon. Thank you.

Uhhh, never knew this was frowned upon. Don't really care either? Wear whatever you want!

I wear a Porsche hat & Cayenne launch polo that my dealer got me from time to time, don't really care what anyone thinks about it lol

There's your problem - taking life advise from YouTube.
Let me guess - you have about 50 cats just to see all their hi-jinks?

For me, rolling up with top down, gold chains on, unbuttoned Polo, PCA hat and driving shoes makes a statement.

I dont care much about how silly I look.

My TTS special wishes car make up for it.

But it's ok to wear stuff with Ferrari on it?

Probably 98% of the people I've seen wearing Porsche gear actually have a Porsche and/or a great appreciation for the cars.

Probably 98% of the people I've seen wearing Ferrari clothing will never own a Ferrari. And that's the difference. Ferrari sells a brand, Porsche sells great sports cars....

Wear your Porsche polo with pride!

Personally, I try not to wear any clothing with branding, but that's just me. I don't feel the need to advertise anything in particular, but you should do what makes you happy!

Youtuber is dumb. Most of my car friends wear stuff with their brands on it occasionally.

I'll wear a Porsche shirt, but never on the same day I'm wearing my Ferrari underpants. That's just ghey.
