Ralph Lauren has been a longtime New York Yankees fan, growing up in the Bronx not too far from where the Yankees played. In 2018 he made every kids dream a reality, when he threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium to commemorate his brand’s 50th anniversary.
For that special occasion, Lauren launched a special edition Polo x Yankees collaboration which consisted of a Ralph 50th logo Wilson leather mit, a New Era and “RL 50” logo hat, a Rawlings baseball with a pony logo, and an embroidered Ralph Lauren satin baseball jacket. The collaboration was a huge success and sold out almost immediately.
That success, led Lauren’s company and the MLB to launch a 3-collection partnership with the league to design collections for some of baseball’s most popular teams. The first teams include the Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cub, and the St. Louis Cardinals. Other teams will be added during the rest of the season. The collection will feature polo shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, and New Era hats for adults and children and will include special team-themed Polo Bear polos and sweatshirts.
The collection will be available at Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, the MLB flagship in New York City, and select MLB Club stadium stores, along with some Ralph Lauren stores around the world. Items range from $69.50 for a hat all the way up to $498 for a jacket. This partnership with MLB is the latest sports collaboration for the Ralph Lauren brand as the company also works with the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams, Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the Australian Open, the PGA of America, the U.S. Ryder Cup team, and the American Junior Golf Association.
