Ralph Lauren is the official supplier of the US Ryder Cup Team 2021 for the fourth year now. The team will wear a variety of garments in red, white and blue as they battle for victory in Whistling Straits, Wisconsin.
Ralph Lauren will outfit all players, caddies, spouses and partners. Vice-captain and longtime Ralph Lauren golf ambassador Davis Love III is delighted that the Ryder Cup will play again this year in the patriotic designs of Ralph Lauren.
“The captains and players just want to play. It’s time, “said Love.
The Ralph Lauren Ryder Cup collection includes a capsule full of Polo Golf and RLX Golf apparel. All items in this collection are made in Ralph Lauren’s functional fabrics with moisture-wicking properties and improved air circulation. The polos are designed to complement any swing and the pants are lightweight and flexible.
The company is very excited about its bad weather items, which include sweaters, vests, wool jackets, and packable down jackets. These pieces have been curated to combat any weather collections that might come into play in Wisconsin.
Polo Ralph Lauren will be the tournament’s largest on-site apparel supplier with a wide variety of the brand’s merchandise available for purchase to the public. Owning a piece from the Ryder Cup Collection is like part of tournament history.
Love recalls seeing Tony Finau wearing his Ryder Cup jacket at the Atlanta airport months after the tournament. He also mentioned the number of times Patrick Reed wore the iconic pinstripe pants from the previous Ryder Cup collection at PGA Tour games.
“These pieces should be worn over and over again, not just one weekend a year,” says Love.
On the first day of the tournament, the players wear the RLX Course Polo in a classic fit made of 88% recycled polyester and 12% elastane. The Ryder Cup team logo appears on the left chest, USA print on the back shoulder and “United We Stand” print on the back outside of the collar. This polo is combined with the Cypress Pant, which has a tailored fit made of 100% polyester. The color of the pants is French Navy and includes a French Navy pinstripe and an embossed motif of the Ryder Cup shield and trophy. A French Navy vest is an option for the layered look.
On Friday, another RLX course polo in navy with red horizontal stripes will be played. It is combined with the Cypress Pant in the French Navy. A French Navy with Golf Course Camo full-zip jacket is a layering piece.
On Saturday the players wear the Mesh Camoflauge Jacquard Polo in a classic fit. The polo is equipped with a jacquard knitted collar with USA lace and an unfinished English button placket with three buttons and a collar bar. This polo is complemented by a French navy pinstripe cypress pant. A French Navy jacket with a full zip completes the look on Saturday.
Team USA wears the Air Tech Pique Polo on Sunday. This polo has a French navy collar with a red, white and blue color block design. Sunday’s cloakroom will include a French Navy flagged cypress pant with an embossed motif of the Ryder Cup shield and trophy. The players wear a sweater with their name on it. This sweater is a made-to-order design where the public can have their own bespoke Ryder Cup sweater delivered to their doorstep in just a few weeks.
