So raise your hand if you’ve ever worn a shirt with a little polo player on it.  Now raise your hand if you’ve ever doused your body with either Polo Sport, Polo or any other Ralph Lauren fragrance.  And finally, raise your hand if you like ridiculously awesome car collections.

I have always known about Ralph Lauren but never really had a strong respect for him until I saw a documentary (Speed, Style and Beauty) on TV about his car collection.  Yeah I know he’s a designer, but there are a lot of designers out there that I am not on the same page with, especially for men’s style. 

His latest ads and collection are good reflections of his utilitarian, understated and classic style.  I particularly favor the pieces from his Purple and Black Label collections.

Check out some screen caps from his website below.

And really – he’s got a killer car collection.  So killer, in fact, that some of them were displayed in a museum as an art installation. 

Check out a few of them below.  (Images from autoblog.com)

To create Essential Style for Men, mix 2 parts petrol, 1 part secret agent, 1 part rock and roll, 1 part hip-hop and a shot of tequila in a shaker with ice and vigorously shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with explosives and have a supermodel serve for all your friends to enjoy.
