I must admit that in many ways I think of myself as a relatively unpatriotic person; someone often disinterested in our country’s triumphs. However, when it comes to clothing, I’m all about the British style. There is something so unique about wearing that item of attire which reflects you and your roots – particularly when we live in a country that I feel is on a “march of progress” towards equality between men and women’s fashion.
It is due to my passion for English style that when I heard the news of Ralph Lauren’s new range for the U.S Olympic squad, I began to wonder why is it that we chose to use Adidas – a German based company – when there are so many other obvious choices closer to home.
Us Brits aside, one must praise the Ralph Lauren for their commitment to sporting events. Not only have they supplied full kit for the Olympic team, but they are also maintaining their connection with ‘the other’ British sporting event this summer, which is no doubt going to be overshadowed somewhat by the Olympic rings.
Polo Ralph Lauren first designed clothing for Wimbledon back in 2006, when they provided uniforms for chair and line umpires. Since then, it seems as though the brand have begun to dominate the events overall style – and who better to do it? Their preppy style undoubtedly suits the civilised greens of Wimbledon, and now the public are able to replicate a similar look, with the launch of the latest Ralph Lauren Wimbledon Collection.
The range is lead with a unique tracksuit style jacket, which offers a sporty feel and comes complete with the iconic Polo logo. This is a jacket that can provide smart Preppy inspired style, with an athletic twist.
Accompanying the jacket are two short sleeve polo shirts, which utilise the signature Polo silhouette but with a Wimbledon blend. The final pieces in the range come in the form of blue fleece trousers and a cap, allowing you to complete your tennis inspired look for this spring/summer.
