Rapper and Original Lo-Lifes Co-Founder Thirstin Howl the 3rd was approached by Polo by Ralph Lauren to model the re-release of the "Snow Beach" collection. The jacket was produced in 1995 and was made famous when Rapper Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan wore it in the "Can It Be All So Simple" Video. Ralph decided to re-release the collection for all the new Polo heads that never had the chance to get it for the first time around.
