    the new generation is not wearing ralph lauren anymore. Ralph Lauren's time is slowly coming to an end.

    i realize Lo heads are a real movement though, but that isn't enough maybe

    it's unreal how obessed i was with this brand around 8 years ago compared to how i have literally no interest in it now. If i'm in the outlets, I'm checking for banana republic/nike and that's about it.

    I always felt like trick daddy was instrumental with RL's boost in popularity in the Early 2000's with the brand name drops.

    Word most of my recent pieces are rugby. Very dope line.

    Its interesting though do they go for the exclusivity of the high end lines like Chanel or Givenchy or do they lowers prices entirely and go for the buck.
    RL back in my young days was about exclusivity and the appeal of having dope expensive street wear.

    Now I don't know what it's direction is.

    Anything to do with him stepping down as CEO last year? Personal fortune of almost 6 billion he will be ok I think.

    official celebrity collabs perhaps?

    might not be what the purist would want, but the masses will

    Off the top of my head I think I have maybe one polo dress shirt but that's it. I stopped wearing polo cause of their sizing, for me an L is too big and an M is too tight lol

    If I see something cool in the outlets id cop tho....some of their stuff is pretty dope.

    the only things that touch my body is lo and jcrew. Kinda wished I didn't have so many lo pieces with the pony on it tho. People always commenting on me wearing it.

    Saw this coming for a while. Idk if it's the new CEO from old navy & hm or what but the brand just hasn't been itself for some time now. The quality has def taken a big hit & the amount of dope pieces just isn't there anymore. Ultimately I think the brand will prevail but idk if they have the right dude at the helm tbh
