A Nouveau Riche Life, Style & Culture For The Self-Made Man and Woman
We survived the hood on instinct, not inheritance - thus the movement was born.
Picture this: 1986, the original St. Johns Polo Posse forms a movement in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn that historically encouraged hoods across the world to always succeed on their own merit. We never looked to those more fortunate for approval because we were self-made, on the contrary it is highly publicized that pop culture idolized us and often followed the leaders.
We are not thieves, boosters, steamers, thugs nor hoodlums. We were children with an unfortunate past. We became leaders of a highly coveted lifestyle and culture from the inner city. Our survival skills are like no other. We've become entrepreneurs, nurses, lawyers, thought-leaders, doctors and so much more than what they thought we could ever be.
This is the glue that bonds us together - we are Self-Made.
