Ralph Lauren may be a behemoth company, but sometimes they still do things the good old fashioned small-batch way. Take these selvedge jeans, for example. Rugby has partnered with the Greensboro, North Carolina, plant Cone Denim White Oak to produce 100 limited-edition pairs of jeans. The special collection features oxford-cloth pockets and back patches inspired by signature RL neckties. To top it all off, the $398 jeans come in a special box set—along with a matching tie and, uh, instructional booklet. Fancy.
