Polo Ralph Lauren is a famous American brand, which was established by Ralph Lauren in 1967. Polo Ralph Lauren shirts are made in China and probably other Asian countries. They feature split yokes, box pleats and single-needle stitching. No gussets. No hand-stitching. Buttons are made of plastic and mother-of-pearl; sometimes they are sewn on without shanks, sometimes with shanks. Sleeves are sewn as usual. Polo Ralph Lauren shirts are made of 100% cotton, 100% linen or 98% cotton + 2% elastane fabric (sometimes – non-iron fabrics). These fabrics are above average, but definitely not excellent. Some casual shirts are garment-dyed. Unfortunately, Polo Ralph Lauren shirts have brand logo on the chest.
