Ralph Lauren took tried-and-true menswear elements—including tweed, plaid, and flannel—and transformed them into a wardrobe of stylishly modern sportswear. Fresh ideas include athletic-inspired, jersey-knit Italian cashmere pants and tops, incredibly soft suede vests and jackets, and casual leather jackets and knit sweaters with sartorial construction—all in a tempting and wearable range of chocolate browns and charcoal grays. From left: cashmere sweater ($1,295), flannel pants ($695), and cashmere scarf ($495); twill Melton coat ($6,995), cashmere sweater ($1,695), and cashmere athletic pants ($1,495); alligator jacket ($95,000), cashmere sweater ($995), and flannel pants ($695).
