Here are some facts pertaining to this topic: 1) Until 2004, a Candian company provided all the apparel for US athletes at olympic games. 2) Ralph Lauren became the official spsoner of USOC in 2008. The contract is up for renewal in 2020. 3) Ralph Lauren's olympic apparel for 2008 Beijing games and 2010 Vancouver games were made primarily in China. 4) Ralph Lauren is only repsonsible for opening and closing ceremony clothing for our athletes. During competition,...
I saw the navy blazar in the Rodeo store yesterday and it is Made in China. I guess if you want to see the blazar to be made in Italy, you would have to pay at least $1,095.00.Ralph Lauren menswear has not been Made In the USA for almost a decade now. But changes are coming, I saw a Fall 2012 Ralph Lauren Black Label polo shirt that is actually has the Made in USA label.
The opening ceremony trouser is actually Made in Italy.

Last July, I brought a Black Label Polo shirt for $11.00. The regular price for the shirt is $195.00.

I just got back from Beverly Center Macys. I brought a slim fit beige Polo Ralph Lauren shirt for $7.49 + tax ($9.99 - 25% for F&F). Macys is having another "One" Day sale this coming Friday and Saturday. If your local Macys still carries some of the Winter Olympic RL stuff, they will be on sale at 82.5% off (65% off plus an additional 50% off). Department stores such as Macys, Bloomingdales, Saks etc are your best bet for good deals on Polo. Polo outlet is never...
About 10 years ago, I purchased some of these "knitted" polos from Polo Ralph Lauren (Blue) and purple labels. I also purchased few of this type of polo shirts from Malo. But it has been a long time since I last saw them in any stores. These "knitted" polos are very comfortable. The main drawback is its high cleaning cost. Dry cleaning or very careful hand washing is the only option. I would never put them in a washing machine.
