"I want to personally thank all members of our global team and strategic partners around the world on behalf of U.S. Polo Assn. for their hard work and dedication to our sport-inspired brand," says J.

"To be in the top 25 on License Global's prestigious list and be ranked among other iconic sport and fashion leaders is an honor and a nod to our tireless efforts in executing on our global strategy and aggressive growth plans."

License Global's Top Global Licensors list is a "who's who" of licensing titans, derived from an annual study that "accounts for retail sales of licensed merchandise across all major sectors of business, from entertainment to sport, food and beverage, corporate brands, fashion, art and design, and much more."

To be considered for inclusion, each brand or corporate entity must submit retail figures based on worldwide sales of licensed merchandise. In addition, License Global's editors do their own independent vetting and verification, by consulting industry sources, annual reports, and financial documents. The world's largest brand remains The Walt Disney Company at $61.7 billion in retail sales, with the third-largest brand, Warner Bros. Discovery, at $15.8 billion, and Mattel, the eighth-largest brand at $8 billion.
