Polo Ralph Lauren is named after its founder, Ralph Lauren, who was born in The Bronx, New York in 1939. At just 28 years old, Ralph Lauren worked for tie manufacturer Beau Brummell and after convincing the company’s president to allow him to launch his own line of ties, Ralph Lauren the brand was born. From humble beginnings spent working out of a desk drawer in the Empire State Building, Lauren went on to create a global empire and a luxury lifestyle brand that includes home furnishings, multiple clothing lines, accessories and fragrances.
