Now, you may be thinking, “What makes Ralph Lauren dress shirts so special.” You may assume we’re talking about either Black or Purple Label shirts. No, we’re talking about Polo Ralph Lauren dress shirts. Sure, you can find great dress shirts from any number of companies, but we test you to find a brand with a better combination of quality, price, and consistency. You can get tons of dress shirts that are finer than these, but you’ll pay for the quality. You can get tons of dress shirts that are cheaper than these, but you won’t look nearly as fine. And what we love best of all about Polo’s dress shirting is that every single season they turn out great styles.
Ralph Lauren just put up their winter collection online last week. Although it’s not something revolutionary, we’re in the Christmas mood and this is the closest we have in the fashion world right now. They have some surprisingly solid Christmas sweaters that will look good in places other than a tacky Christmas party. Along with their knitwear, they have some solid flannels as well as great caps, scarves, and gloves. Definately worth checking out if you’re feeling holiday-ready.

Here’s a look that you probably can’t pull off in too many seasons other than Autumn. Enjoy.
Once again, Fall is about rich textures, subdued colors, and multiple layers. So this look takes in a beautiful quilted suede vest in a nice brown from Brooks Brothers and pairs it with a soft khaki colored shirt. Throw on the crewneck in purple for the perfect cashmere texture and just the right amount of “pop” in color. Herringbone pants will be a hit, so keep vibing on your fall colers and match them with some crimson polka-dotted socks from none other than Paul Smith. Finally, the always trusty suede loafers from Alden.

A henley is a great play for when you’re unsure about the weather. It’s a little sturdier than a standard shirt, but won’t leave you sweating when it starts to heat up. You can throw it on over a button-down if you wish or wear it under a jacket. It also will come in handy if you run into one of those below-freezing days because you’ll be able to put it on under your shirt for an extra layer of warmth. The secret to a henley is to get a thermal piece that is slim-fitting and simple. Too often designers mess up their henleys by trying to get too tricky, but luckily the reliable Ralph Lauren has perfected it. It’s super soft and the perfect earthy oatmeal color. You can get yours for $98 at Ralph Lauren.
