Ralph Lauren Tribute.
I'm a person who is not about the name brands. I'm not a quantity nor quality guy. I buy whatever would look great on me. But if I had to choose which brand made a lot of impact on me and influenced me to be fashionable it would be Ralph Lauren. I'm a very versatile gentleman but deep down, down all the way down to my core...you would see that my preppy side takes over any other style I put out. This post is just a minor dedication to the RL brand.

As a kid and looking through my sister's fashion magazine, I would always see POLO ads and I would just automatically fall in love. It's very American, if not the brand for the United States, in my opinion. It doesn't get any better than that. I especially love the early versions of the brand, it was very chic line, just the epitome of preppy America. It's funny that the ad above, if it was published today would be very fitting for our time. It's like the past returning to merge with the present. I love it. My parents used to rock it and now I'm wearing it in a similar fashion.
