My April 2004 issue of GQ arrived in the mail yesterday. Immediately inside the cover is the ad for Ralph Lauren Purple Label. It shows a single breasted, three button black linen jacket worn with a black polo shirt, light purple pocket square with white polka-dots, "kiwi" (vivid lime) silk gabardine pants, and black velvet slippers.. And that is one of the better looks in the Spring Collection. This prompted me to check out the runway shows at Â www.runway.polo.com. There were a few nice things but mostly my reaction was, 'what the heck was he thinking??' This is kinda sad, as collections in the past few years have, in my opinion, featured a lot of great clothes. Do ya'll think he will sell any of this stuff? They say Purple Label loses money for Ralph. I'd hate to see him keep up this recent trend, as I don't want the line to vanish altogether...
