Happy Birthday

We owe today's birthday boy a great deal of thanks.  Although he can neither draw nor sew, his intuitive sense of style and taste have combined to create the aspirational Ralph's world. Without Ralph, too many iconic pieces of menswear would have been consigned to the dustbin of  costume or history.

Ralph's is truly an American story; a rags to riches embodiment of Gatsby himself.  The pony may be ubiquitous, but most men's wardrobes look decidedly better when they wear a bit of Ralph. Frankly, I'll love Ralph forever for creating the women's cologne Lauren.

Happy Birthday sir.

The world is a much more stylish place because of Ralph. He personifies, timeless elegance. You put it best Toad..Gatsby 'esque!!

Have a terrific Sunday.

Oh Toad, Lauren is my fall/winter fragrance, and it has been for over 30 years. I love that you share my appreciation for that little burgundy bottle.
