Today Ralph Lauren launched a new shopping site dedicated entirely to the brand's extensive vintage archives. Well, it's sort of a shopping site—the RL Vintage boutique is meant to be fully shoppable, but we were told pricing is only available on request (note to your pre-teen self: You should never have donated that American flag sweater to Goodwill!).
Anyway, so while it's not going to be your go-to site for cheap vintage scores, it sure is gorgeous. Right now it's showcasing a selection of western-inspired vintage items, and the site will be updated seasonally with new items and themes. Enjoy a few highlights above.
