Many people see Ralph Lauren today as a major player in the fashion industry worldwide. But what many people don’t know about Ralph Lauren, is the history behind it. Well it all began in the year of 1967, founded by the man himself, Ralph Lauren. Mr. Lauren started with men’s ties in 1967.

Later on in 1968, Ralph made his first line of menswear with the name Polo. By the year of 1978, Ralph Lauren had already produced a womensline of clothing, opened a store in Beverly Hills, California, and created outfits for the 1977 classic, “The Great Gatsby”. The small tie company that Mr. Lauren had once started, had now become a fashion icon in the 1980’s.

In 1981, the corporation went international by going to the West End of London, England. By the year of 1997, Ralph Lauren would become a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The company also sponsors the USTA, Wimbledon, and last but certainly not least, the U.S. Olympic Team.

As of 2018, Ralph Lauren’s net worth is an estimated $6 billion according to Forbes. The Ralph Lauren Corporation continues to thrive under the new CEO Patrice Louvet. In my humble opinion, Ralph Lauren is one of the most classiest and stylish brands that you could wear.
