whats with Ralph Lauren?

I've been put on some financial training via the bank I now work for.
People from other banks from across the country were also on the same training. But what stud out was that most of them wore nothing but Ralph Lauren clothing.

What's the fascination with RL? Am I missing something?

    Most of it's fake.

    If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.

    Did you do this training recently or back in 1990?

    I love Ralph lauren, especially their shirts. Always feel a bit special.

    I own a lot of Ralph Lauren stuff for three reasons. I like their style, their clothes are a good fit on me and they sell it cheap at the TK Maxx down the road from my house.

    Some RL stuff is really cool my ex's sister used to work for them so got to go to the sales at the end of the year. The proper stuff is seriously nice and expensive. Polo shirts etc are just cheap and you get them from TK Maxx. If its an American bank with Americans generally its because RL costs fck all in the US and is pretty much the equivalent to our topshop. That aside i guess its just because people think its posh and were trying t "fit" in. 
     
    For whats its worth i deal with bankers/traders everyday and have never seen anyone in obvious RL clothing so its not the norm.

    Not strictly true they get bankrupt stock as well. Besides a plain white RL polo is still a plain white pole 5,10 or 15 years later lol.

    Ralph Lauren is **** all like topshop anywhere ever. The stuff in the outlets is by and large made for the outlets, if you buy from Frasers or Ralph main stores you are buying quality goods.

    Love their stuff. They just provide classic cuts with a quality build. Is it worth the money? It can be a little pricey so I always look for a bargain where I can. As said above its soo much cheaper in the US hence why people just load up while out there. A mate of mine at work went to Philidelphia recently and bought shed loads of stuff and it will last him a year or two at nearly a 1/4 of the price it is here.

    On the training we all wore smart casual clothing. So it maybe different to Day to day business wear.
