An immovable fixture in the gamut of athletically-informed casual wear, Polo Ralph Lauren’s enduring reputation as the epitome of off-duty luxe has taken on many different shapes since the label’s 1967 debut. Initially emerging as an emblem of clean-cut American preppy-ness, the brand was re-appropriated as a staple of 90’s hip-hop culture, and now enjoys a reputation that amalgamates the many peaks of its illustrious history.
