Ralph Lauren is as American as apple pie — and that's putting it mildly. Over his nearly 50-year career, the Bronx-born designer has defined style in the U S of A. From his bespoke suits and Old West fringed jackets to weathered denim and Polo logo sportswear, Lauren can re-imagine any genre of dress while preserving his star-spangled aesthetic. In honor of the designer's 75th birthday, we're looking back at 14 of his most quintessential, time-tested motifs.
