From about the moment we left our cribs, mom had us swaddled in Ralph Lauren. And as we and the brand got a little bit older, she had spectacular luck finding incredible pieces at thrift stores, which we'd mix in with our new things. I remember loving my navy blue blazer with burgundy grosgrain trim...and my adorable little pink pleated mini-skit that I wore with leather braces in kindergarten...and my three pairs of Polo saddle shoes (white ones with red, green and yellow "saddles", respectively) when I was in second grade (with feet big enough to fit into a woman's 5). As adults, we covet these clothes and I, like a master apprentice, can spot a Ralph Lauren sweater from 100 feet the moment I hit a thrift store. It will almost bring me to tears if said sweater is a man's XL. So, we're both pretty freaking giddy to be featured as vintage Ralph collectors on the brand's new Japanese e-commerce site. On top of it being Ralph Lauren...it's our dream of seeing our names (not in lights, but) next to Japanese characters come true.
