Ralph Lauren for Older Men

Updated on July 23, 2017

Ralph Lauren for Older Men

If there's one name that says "effortless style," it's Ralph Lauren. This is a fashion icon that we should get to know, men. His styles are elegant and unfussy, and older men -- of which I am proud to say I am one -- look especially good in the clean lines and quality material that Ralph Lauren has made his stock and trade. The rules for looking good are all about self-confidence, and there's nothing so self-confident as a man of a certain age who looks good, and knows it.

Ralph Lauren for Older Men: The Classic Blue Blazer

This essential part of any older man's wardrobe is expertly tailored in Italy. I prefer the two-button variety, but the three-button style is also a brilliant choice. The fabric is extra-fine wool, and the coat sports the classic golden embossed buttons. Look closely at those buttons, and you'll see the crossed polo mallets that signify the Lauren brand.

The coat has notched lapels and four embossed buttons at each cuff, and a double vent in the back. In short, this jacket is Lauren in a nutshell -- clean lines, conservative tailoring, and an image that always works for you.

A Style Necessity for Older Men

Ralph Lauren for Older Men: Polo, the Classic Scent for Men

For more than thirty years, this scent has told the world that there's a man in the room. The fresh, clean scent of Polo is one of those touches that shows older men like us are on top of our game. Ralph Lauren has always had an instinctive sense for clean and assertive style. Younger men -- let's call them boys, shall we? -- have their own style edge. Let them have it -- we can claim the experience and wisdom that our years have given us.

The Polo experience has been described in different ways by different cologne critics, but one theme emerges in nearly all of their writing: the intense masculinity of Polo cologne. Among the profusion of grass-centered herbs like thyme, cumin and cloves is a base note of patchouli and tobacco, which makes Polo stand out from the typical "cool blue" scent that too many colognes for men lean on. If you're a young shaver who thinks that Axe is an acceptable way to smell, then Polo is not for you. If you're a man who knows what he likes, then it just may be your ticket. It is, as one reviewer so aptly said, "like Marlon Brando on steroids.

Ralph Lauren for Older Men: George Clooney Rocks a Classic Polo Short-Sleeve

Steal George's look, men. You could do a whole lot worse. George Clooney has a way of making anything he wears look classic, and it's not just his own classic good looks. We can't all have the clean jaw line and piercing eyes of Mr. Clooney (let alone his brilliant, gorgeous bride), but we can think carefully about our style choices. George is solidly in his fifties, and you won't catch him walking out in a pair of faded dad jeans and white jogging shoes. So even if we don't have his looks and career, we can still have his sense of dignity.

I have always been inspired by the dream of America—families in the country, weathered trucks and farmhouses; sailing off the coast of Maine; following dirt roads in an old wood-paneled station wagon...

Lauren for Older Men: Polo Wayfarer Sunglasses

A Timeless Classic

It's been said that quality sunglasses are a great equalizer -- they can give an older man that air of cool that younger men simply haven't earned yet. Let the young pups have their trendy shiny metal eyewear. Us vintage models will roll up wearing classic Wayfarers, and guess who'll look better?

These sunglasses are sleek and lean, like all classic Lauren designs. I like these shades because, as an older man myself, flashy and "modern" looks are my choice. Leave the aggressively fashion-forward looks to the kids, and stick with classic lines and looks.

The Ralph Lauren Look for Older Man

Clean, sharp lines are the rule for Ralph Lauren designs, which plays well with the distinguished look older men seek. Skinny jeans and pipe-cleaner suits look great if you're a size 36 and have just started shaving. Leave that domain to the kids, my friends, and stick with the elegant lines of designers like Lauren. It took us years to get where we are -- show what you've learned by choosing a look that honors your place in life.
