Nothing rare or esoteric today, just a bunch of new Ralph Lauren fall/ winter releases that I think look pretty great. Some notables:
- Polo Label Outerwear: Ralph Lauren’s Polo label has some basic, but well designed, outerwear this coming season. There are some field jackets in cotton canvas and nylon, the first of which is priced surprisingly low. In addition, they’ve brought back their Cadwell jacket, which is an iteration of the lightweight, quilted bombers they do every year, and introduced some bolder designs through these tartan hunting coats and belted blackwatch oilcloths. I also really like this B-10 bomber, which is a reproduction of the cloth-shelled jackets that the US government supplied to servicemen in the 1940s, for the brief period that leather A-2s were discontinued (which Ralph Lauren has a repro for as well).
- RRL Outerwear: Not to be missed is RRL’s outerwear, which includes a roughed-out sueded ranch jacket that looks like it was pulled out of some 1920s archive, as well as a reproduction of early motorcycle jackets, which had shawl collars and button fronts. A fold-down collar moto is also available if you want something less old-timey. For more affordable outerwear, there’s a quilted jacket with a Western-styled yoke and a navy deck jacket to wear with jeans. I also really like this indigo discharge print jacket and Southwestern piece, although I’m not entirely sure I have the flair required to wear the second.
