Now, we’re sure you’ve heard of Ralph Lauren. Whether you’re a seasoned fashionista or have just watched a lot of Friends – we’re placing our bets on you being acquainted with the fashion label in some shape or form. What some of you may or may not know is that Ralph Lauren also boasts s few (rather slick) diffusion lines. Gents, may we introduce: Polo Ralph Lauren.

Ralph Lauren was established back in 1967, where the man himself, Ralph, began a necktie line under the label ‘Polo’. He named it that because to him, Polo was a sport that had sensibility and was internationally sophisticated. From there on, a full line of Polo menswear was launched in 1968 and by 1969, the collection was so successful that there was a Polo Ralph Lauren shop opened within Bloomingdale’s (the first time Bloomingdale’s had ever given a designer their own in-store boutique – impressive). The Polo shirt was introduced in 1972 and the rest, they say, is history.

If you’re into premium preppy style, the Polo shoe range may just be what you’re after to accompany your look. The range takes influence from Ivy League classics, time-honoured English haberdashery and All-American sporty design.

The Polo Ralph Lauren Harvey NE shoes and Polo Ralph Lauren Harvey CV shoes are strong smart/ casual choices:

Ralph Lauren wants the range to be stylish and to appeal to all generations of men, and we reckon the shoes we stock portray this pretty well; from classic loafers, brogues and nautical boat shoes to premium plimsolls and on-trend printed slip-ons – there’s a little something for everyone.

Here’s a sneak preview of the hotly anticipated Polo Ralph Lauren Torrington W NT brogue  which is due to launch mid-July:
