  • Ralph Lauren was born Ralph Lifshitz - (well, you'd change it,

    wouldn't you?) - in 1939 in humble beginnings in the Bronx,

    New York and is still going strong after more than 50 years in

    the fashion business. After leaving the army he started in

    the fashion world selling ties and then in 1967 designing

    his own menswear with a sports look which he called Polo.

    Within two years Bloomingdale's were selling his men's line

    exclusively. An incredible career and success story, the

    American Dream. This pair a small chapter in that story,

    Ralph branching into optical frames for men in the 1980's,

    under the Polo umbrella. Rare to find these, it is in great

    condition too.
