Lauren’s words about the importance of Western representation in his brand are so true!

“Western clothes somehow reflect, and project, that love of the great outdoors, that pride in one’s self and one’s body.” – Ralph Lauren

What most people don’t know, is that Ralph Lauren started as a denim brand! Lauren wanted real, comfortable, timeless denim and more. He created an entire world of Western iconography: leather vests, roper boots, and pearl-snap shirts with contrast piping; Western blazers, bandannas, bib-front overalls, and eagle-buckle belts.
