Ralph Lauren‘s premium Purple Label imprint delivers a plush take on the company’s Polo Bear mascot by way of this Italian-made T-shirt. Soft cotton jersey plays host to an embroidered image of a very dapper Polo Bear at the chest.
Having been reimagined in everything from ski gear to collegiate gear, mid-heelflip, the latest iteration of the Polo Bear is particularly suave, sporting a tilted beret, circular sunglasses and louche chinos atop a pair of espadrilles. Unlike screen-printed imaginings of the figure, this Bear is embroidered on the chest of the lightweight shirt, ensuring that the graphic will never crack or lose color. The shirt itself offers a trim fit, ideal for wearing alone or underneath lightweight seasonal layers.
