Inscription.  Ralph Lauren’s genius lies in identifying and interpreting classic American style. He has drawn on every important look in this country’s clothing history – from Native American styles and the cowboy look of the Old West, to the elegance of old Hollywood and the sophisticated sportswear of the Anglo-American country gentry. Having begun his career as designer of neckties, Ralph Lauren ultimately developed a total lifestyle approach, designing for both the body and the home.
 
Erected 2000.
