When we saw the Polo Vintage Collection ad in the September edition of GQ, we nearly shat our pants. We went around the web looking for what in the hell it was, but came up with nothing. Finally this morning we had our answers. The tailored goods in the Polo Ralph Lauren collection for the Fall ’09 campaign have taken their inspiration from a time when elegance was everything in dress. While everyone is hopped up on the Mad Men style of the late 50’s, Ralph Lauren has looked back a decade or two and gone for a wide lapel look that defined the 30s and 40s. We’re really happy to see someone doing something that doesn’t look like Thom Browne and welcome this collection. Our favorite piece has to be the Charcoal Wool Hacking Jacket by Black Label, which technically isn’t part of the Polo Vintage Collection, but c’mon it looks pretty damn similar. You can pick it up for $1,550 here.
