Ralph Lauren Double RL Collection

The Double RL clothing line, named after Ralph Lauren’s ranch in Ridgway, CO.  It made it’s North American debut in May of 1993.  The line was sold exclusively through a handful of Ralph Lauren stores, selected boutiques, and Neiman Marcus.

Vintage is at the core of Ralph Lauren’s design philosophy that things get better with age. Double RL, his vintage-inspired collection, is the culmination of his search to find and create clothing that is authentic, individual and one of a kind.  Existing outside of the fashion mainstream, Double RL has inspired a cult-like following. The unique pieces reflect a ruggedness and an edgy attitude that appeals to an individualistic sense of style and integrity.The clothing line included vintage time-worn leather jackets, handwoven heirloom quality sweaters, hand-tooled leather belts, and rough hewn denim inspired by the cowboy heritage of the American west.  Double RL’s designers were heavily influenced by the military uniform styles of the 1940s, early American pioneers, adventurers from by-gone era’s, and classic collegiate wardrobe staples.
