100 years ago in the American West, garments were sturdy for long days on a ranch. Ralph Lauren’s brand Double RL is inspired by this heritage, named after his Colorado cattle ranch and its influences can be seen in this curated collection of RRL clothing.

About a century ago, the American West was known for its hardworking garments—durable and able to withstand long days on a ranch, as well as the fluctuating desert climate. It was this sturdy quality that legendary American fashion designer Ralph Lauren drew inspiration from to create his brand Double RL—named after his own Colorado cattle ranch near Ridgway on the San Juan Scenic Byway.

Since 1993, RRL has become a success story and provider of classic pieces. Each item is the ideal balance between wild and polished, making it perfect for your wardrobe.

The RRL line, pronounced “Double RL” is derived from the name of Lauren family’s 17,000 acre cattle ranch just outside Telluride, Colorado. The brand name, RRL, represents Ralph and Ricky Lauren is a collection of fashionable items with a touch of Western-inspired mystique. RRL offers men a mix of selvage denim, vintage apparel, sportswear and accessories, with roots in workwear and military gear.

RRL is Ralph’s love letter to the industrious, pioneering spirit of the American West, and everything in their collection carries on the rugged, independent style that makes something a classic piece of Americana. Here’s a highly curated round-up of RRL clothing pieces available at Huckberry.
