About Ralph Lauren
Bronx, NY native Ralph Lauren has always had a drive to look good and help others look good. In 1967 he opened his first, Polo shop and sold his own design of neckties. Even though he never attended fashion school, this designer won the COTY award, gained an audience for redesigning a men's suit for a women's collection and redefined the classic polo with a mesh short sleeve design with his polo logo. Polo, Ralph Lauren Black and Purple collections, Sport are just a few lines from the Ralph Lauren family of labels.
