Today Ralph Lauren launched a group of special Polo Original pieces, a curation of reworked classics that embody the essence of the Ralph Lauren brand. Ralph Lauren is pulling inspiration from its origins, created from vintage designs in this range of British-inspired sportswear it is a standout part of the Polo Ralph Lauren FW22 collection. The campaign features the University of St Andrews Football and Rugby team and was shot by renowned photographer Richard Phibbs in picturesque Scotland.

Distinguished and sporty the collection has everything from monogram baseball caps to classic pieces including offerings of vintage-inspired sweaters and a series of three-piece tweed suits that have us reminiscing about a more gentlemanly era. The campaign has us longing for the suit-savvy era of Humphry Bogart and the suave ease of Clark Gable in early American cinema. And why not? A well-cut suit is evergreen. The suits have been paired with more modern trench coats and suede jackets topping off the looks for a younger generation. The Polo Original campaign demonstrates different ways casual elements like caps and shorts can be paired with vintage-inspired pieces for an easy and transformative high-fashion effect. Standout items include a pinstripe suit, and striped, monogram scarves that are the perfect addition to any fall look.
