The Ralph Lauren Corporation started in 1967 with men's ties. At 28 years-old, Lauren worked for the tie manufacturer Beau Brummell, where he persuaded the company's president to let him start his own line. Drawing on his interests in sports, Lauren named his first full line of menswear 'Polo' in 1968.
This is a Ralph Lauren blue denim jacket with workwear inspired details, which has purposely been distressed as part of the workwear look. It features 2 lower welt pockets and 1 upper chest zip patch pocket as well as workwear inspired 2 button cuffs. There is an internal label that dates this to 2007.
Used and in good condition with general signs of wear. The jacket is missing the zip pull from the upper chest pocket however, this does not stop the zipper from working. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All our used listings - unless otherwise stated - have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
