Ralph Lauren Snow Beach + more

1 minutes estimated reading time

Gone before you could get your hands on it. I remember this Ralph Lauren stuff from the first time around. Original pieces were so cheap just a few years ago and now go for mad money as there has been a 90s revival in fashion circles. This style of Ralph Lauren makes a pleasant change from the Supreme circle jerk that seems to have become a parody of hype beast culture. It is interesting how Nike that should have rode this trend is currently in the doldrums. Expect a Timberland style brown boot revival next and I hope that skinny jeans finally die.
