Above is the label from one of my favorite sportcoats by Ralph Lauren. It’s one of those updated Ivy models that basically comes with all the heyday details, plus darts thrown in for free.
This particular one, as you can see, is made in Slovakia. Now that doesn’t bother my conscience, but more ardently patriotic consumers will be pleased to hear that Hickey Freeman has signed a contract to begin making Blue Label tailored clothing here in the states. We anxiously await seeing how the shoulders come out. — CC
