Why are there only men in the intro??
Å Pėrßøñ (4 days ago)
Phantom the fuck do you mean?? There were only men in the intro as if women haven’t done great things as well. I am not a women nor a feminist, i am simply pointing this situation out. And it is very rude of you to reply like that. If you do not get what the comment means, you will politely ask. It is not my problem you are stupid and blind. Women have done great things as well trough out the past and they deserve to be mentioned or shown in the intro. The world would have been a better place if women were allowed and weren’t stopped by MEN to do great and amazing things. And you, can go fuck off! It is my opinion and if you do not agree I don’t give an actual big fat ass mother fucking fuckingly goddam FUCK.

Its pretty sickening that these main stream media outlets are too scared to do any realistic, critical news reporting. This video would make you think its 1993 and RL is on top of the world... when in reality the company is a shell of what it once was.. cheap materials and lackluster designs are what RL is now synonymous with. The company has been in sharp decline since 1997 when it was taken public.

Pleease, yours is the regular american dream. Try building an empire, when you come from one of Europe's poorest areas such as Calabria. Thats where Gianni came from, and in 6 years he had built an empire that was worth a billion

Ralph may have his name on the designs however, as it was stated in this video, he has a vast team of designers and creator and yes they're his ideas and yes he has to ok the designs, still those Final designs are not 100% his own. Just like the Olsen twins line of clothing, Ralph hands over the idea and Someone Else creates the Final finish. ps: I worked in the Polo factory in Ma and know 1st hand that there's nothing special about his brand except that his name is Huge in the fashion industry.

Ralph Lauren was my #1 most favorite fashion idol since the 70s (when I was living in New York) until 2000 (Hong Kong and Shanghai). Unfortunately, in the past 10 years, the men's collection (which was meant to be classical timeless and bold and great taste) have deviated and deteriorated to "mediocrity and lost all its characteristics and uniqueness". Ralph Lauren has retrenched the BLUE label (which is Ralph Lauren's core value and soul and the greatest), and introduced BLACK LABEL (which was horrific) and BLUE label (which is boring and too pricy) ... I am so sad to see my favorite Ralph declined in the past decade to now. I still love to visit the stores which is still beautiful, but always walking out emptied handed and disappointed. I was in the Paris and Hong Kong flagship stores recently, and the men's wear is nothing like the past and so disappointing ! If Ralph Lauren wants to revamp and restore its GLORY days of 70s to 90s, and siginificantly improves its brand image, consumer love, revenue and profits, please let me know !!! I love to help and guarantee big turnaround success !!! .

I like wearing Ralph Lauren’s Polos. Because it signifies success.
movingonandup773 (6 months ago)
That's the marketing success you're $35 shirt is fooling you into feeling. It's really Ralph who's the success, and not you, when he makes you feel like you're the success when you wear his $35 polo shirt... but I get what you're saying and it makes me feel that way too. Lol!

NC Styles What makes u think so, is it that tiny ass pony on yo shirt?

He taps on aspirations of everyone who will never play polo.
The logo is visionary but women clothes should have women polo emblem.
