For more than 50 years, Ralph Lauren has been a menswear staple, playing a large role in defining modern American style. Founded in 1967, the Ralph Lauren Corporation quickly evolved from ties to a full line of menswear called Polo. By 1981, Ralph Lauren was a global brand, bringing its vision of American style to the world. From polo shirts to tuxedos, the influence of Ralph Lauren is hard to overstate. In 2007, Ralph Lauren partnered with Richemont to create a fine watchmaking collection, with models inspired by Mr. Ralph Lauren’s varied interests, such as his love of classic cars (Automotive), the equestrian lifestyle (Stirrup) and adventure (Safari).
