Who Wears Polo Ralph Lauren?

Thu Feb 24, 2005 9:51 am

Possibly my favorite clothing brand. I have about 10 or 12 shirts from them. Although they can get quite pricy, but they are nice.

I see a lot of people wearing it, I know they make tons of money.

So, do you wear Polo??

I wish. Maybe once I get a higher paying job I can afford $100 for a shirt.

I'm poor, the best I can afford is Chaps by Ralph Lauren.....


It is pretty pricey stuff, but in general I think most of the RL stuff is of good quality and worth the premium. And that isn't something I say about many clothes brands.

I love RL, the clothes are super comfortable, they look good and last a long time. They're worth the extra money you pay.

The only RL thing I wear are Chaps. I might have a few polo(not the RL brand, but the style) shirts that are RL aswell.

I was meaning that Ralph Lauren probably makes a lot of money. But the same could be said for the people wearing it too. Although you dont have to be flithy rich to wear it, as I'm not anywhere near rich. I just use a portion of my money on nicer clothes and things I use. Some of their things are outrageous though, I wouldnt pay 130$ for one shirt. Most of the shirts I have from them range from 65$-85$.

And some of the shirts I own from Polo were given to me as gifts.

I find it pretty hard to find something in Ralph Lauren I wouldn't buy! I could swear Ralph Lauren is my long last fashion designer father or something!

Spend far too much money there! I am probably wearing three items of Ralph Lauren a day merely by the proportion of stuff I own. Sports jackets, Oxford shirts, polo shirts, sweaters, socks, underwear, jeans, belts etc etc. I dread to think how much I have dropped at RL worldwide since I first started buying it about 10yrs ago.

Ralph Lauren himself is one of the richest men in the US, I think personal fortune is close to $1.5bn, above Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger from what I remember. I read an article about him and it said a lot of his clothing was a parody of what was worn in eastern seaboard yacht clubs.....

You guys in the US are lucky. Polo is much cheaper than it is here. I have a couple of dress shirts (4) and some different colored custom fit RL polo shirts, but they sell for about 150 euros here. That would be 198 dollars at the current exchange rate  Big grin The most expensive piece of RL i have is a wintercoat though. it was 350 euros, which equates to about 480 dollars.

Don't think that I am filthy rich though, I just buy a bit less, but more expensive clothing. It lasts longer and it looks better. La Coste is also a great brand for polo-type shirts.

I have 3 La Coste shirts as well. Although they are rare to find in the regular US department stores. I ordered 2 of mine online.

The pink polo shirt, a staple in the wardrobes of southern fraternity boys. (I used to be one...but never really bought into that fratastic mentality). I just wear anything black, or suits to work. Though, I do have somewhat flamboyant taste in clubbing gear.

I do own some Ralph Lauren polos (incl. pink  Laugh out loud) and dress shirts. RL polos are probably the most common polos (although Lacoste comes in a close second) in my school.

I like their fragrance 'Blue' for men. I tell you I put it on every day with a button up shirt and I feel good. Polo shirts themselves are too overpriced though I wouldn't be caught dead in one, The Gap is fine by me.

I like a lot of their shirts and denim, but I feel some of the clothes are a bit too old man-ish. I perfer to stick with lacoste, AF and Banana Republic.

Polo is horribly overrated. As far as golf shirts Fairway & Greene blows them away, it's mostly the only shirt I wear. Polo is decent but it washes like shit. The collars get crappy and the shirt doesn't hold up. I have F&G shirts for 3 years that feel and look new, wash in cold low tumble and low iron. Chaps makes a good cord paint but that's all I will touch.

Nope - I swear by Banana Republic myself - their selection of shirts and ties are second to none - and also because the dress shirts have no pockets. I hate pockets.

Although, I wouldn't mind picking up a light blue, pink, and white polo eventually - when I find the store that sells it. Otherwise, I find RL too "old" for my tastes, and sometimes a little 'out there'. Pink pants? Who wears pink pants ?

I do!

I have several Ralph Lauren Polos and pants.
Besides I also am a fashion victim to Prada, Burberry, Lacoste, van Laack and Boss.

I have quite a few things from Polo. Although tend to buy in the US, where clothes are about a third the price of the UK!

also have quite a lot of Hilfiger (smarter stuff, not Chav)

Got a good amount of the stuff, couple dress shirts, naturally a couple polo shirts 2/3 sweaters and a pair of jeans (I think). Nice stuff and good quality, can't complain!

I don't care for all of the goofy pastel colours and I don't like "polo" style shirts. But what I like about the RL products is the tailoring. Reminds me of what Brooks Brothers USED to be here in the U.S. The quality is spotty, however.

By the way, for all of you younger guys who bath in the "Polo" cologne: Stop it! The fragrance has become too common, and remember, cologne is supposed to be intimate wear. Use it sparingly and she will be impressed.

You mean the green one...you're right. My advise is to use the Blue one...more discrete, modern and more impressive  Big grin

my only problem with the polo shirts is the general boxiness of them all. thank god you can customize your own polo shirts online, which is a cool feature--especially since they have also introduced the newer slim fit polos.

as for dress shirts for everyday work though, i must say the banana republic shirts are only increasing in quality, but for cut, style and fabrics, i am more drawn to marc jacobs--which are incredibly versatile for work-to play.

I like Polo. Although, Polo does not compare to the major italian / french designers. My favorite designer is definitely Prada, followed by Ferragamo, and Hugo Boss..... now if only i could have wardrobes of Prada. that would be nice... oh, and their shoes... I am getting teary-eyed.  Big grin

I must say Ralph Lauren is in the top 5 favorite designers of mine. As a matter of fact, funny enough...I just went shopping today and bought about 10 items from the store....what a coincidence!
