Style - Ralph Lauren...is, was and always will be...

Its not hard to like the RL collections...but sadly it is one more 'label' that is under threat from the 'wrong' types. In the UK we have seen this happen to 'Hackett' and 'Burberry' in the past. Hi-jacked by the 'wrong' types (in the UK the rednecks/hicks equivalent ie: persons from the pothe county of Essex) the damage to a 'hi-jacked' brand can be terrible.
Sadly, the current trend I notice is the 'hip-hop' crew (you know the ones I am talking about...) are walking around with the man on the horse on their tops, whilst they don their pants falling half-way down their back sides! (Yuk!)

Anyway, a few pics to remind us why we all appreciate the RL style...

Style - Sly-style

A hugely under-rated star. I look back on the style that Sly exemplified on occassions during his career. The two things always that stand out for me was his fine image during the 'Cobra' period and the physique he had. Now a body builders physique is NOT great for the sartorially wasted - but if you are gonna 'pump' and be sartorially 'clothes-less'....well, there is no harm in doing it 'Sly-style'.
