As much as the Polo Ralph Lauren label represents the true classic American style, Lauren himself is the embodiment of the American Dream. Raised in a working class immigrant family in the Bronx, Ralph Lauren's story is literally rags to riches — he started with a few rags and a "drawer" in a tiny, out-of-the-way office in the Empire State Building. He took those rags and crafted a wide tie fashioned after the style of the quintessential American movie star, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and sold them directly from the Empire State Building showroom. His reinvention of American style struck a chord and today Polo Ralph Lauren is one of the most recognizable fashion labels in the world.
The Polo brand is modeled after the grandeur and sophistication of the sport of polo. That trademark luxury aesthetic is on full display in Polo's line of sunglasses.
