How does /fa/ feel about Ralph Lauren?
>>
I don't like the logo/brand (whoring they started a couple of years back)
>>
i like polo op what is ralph lauren
>>
I wrote a paper once on how they're the greatest fashion brand to ever exist

I don't know if I still hold to that belief but the company has definitely made a name for itself and they have some nice clothes
>>
>>10725128
hot garbage 90% of the time for brandwhores
>>
>>10725128
ive heard good things about purple label stuff

everything else is trash minorities wear to try and seem wealthy
>>
>>10725128
i only know them from their polo shirts, which are almost always worn by guys in the 50s.
>>
I bought anavya Polo Ralph Lauren t shirt at a thrift store for $4. It like it but I wouldn't pay full price ever
>>
Does anyone know what this shirts called?
>>
>>10725128
they have some nice shirts but i wouldnt wear anything else they make
>>
>>10726181
horrible shirt
>>
>>10725128
Their stuff can be nice if worn well, but half the time I see someone wearing Ralph Lauren it's an overweight greasy guy in an baggy creased white shirt.
>>
I have a very old (made in the 70s or 80s) dark blue blazer from them that's super comfy (for a blazer), has inner pockets, etc
So at least their vintage shit is decent
>>
I hate the stuff with the logos, but they have decent stuff as well
For example i saw a pair of suede chelsea boots and i was surprised when i saw they were made by polo ralph lauren, i'm still deciding if i should cop

I'd like to think that's true. But I suspect it's like the Chinese takeout secret menu myth.
As if they're holding back the good stuff from the normies or something.
By enlarge they strike me as overpriced brand trash. Basically a highstreet store for arabs.

Vintage (~80s) Ralph Lauren was absolutely superb for the time. I reaaaaally want one of those cute-as-fuck bear sweaters.

But modern Ralph is somewhat complicated-

Their standard blue and purple labels are still pretty nice. If you like prep, they do it extremely well. I know their style may feel a little unoriginal at this point, but I think that's something of the goal - Ralph Lauren is always gonna be about that sportier preppy look, and they do it so well that it's almost guaranteed to never go out of style.

Polo Ralph Lauren is a mixed bag. The PRL that's sold online is actually quite nice and of good quality, whereas the shit sold in mall stores is demonstrably awful. I'm not sure why that is - I've always suspected that there's a secret sort of tiering going on in the brand, but who knows. PRL also has a bad rep for being the dumping ground of bad design ideas for Ralph Lauren - big pony logos (i.e. the "buy this, Arabs!" shirts), etc. I kinda loved it when they were doing hunting jackets, though, because I fucking love shooting patches on the shoulder.

RRL, RLX, "American Living," and similar spin-off brands are unmitigated trash.

hey dude there's a shirt on your logo.
>>
>>10726339
My thoughts exactly
>want one of those cute-as-fuck bear sweaters
me too senpai

The old aztec jackets are really nice too
>>
They are somewhat popular so /fa/ isn't going to like them.

Is it your first day here?
