The U.S. Ryder Cup team unveiled the Ralph Lauren-designed uniforms, outerwear and bespoke clothing that will be worn by Ralph Lauren at the 43rd Ryder Cup games on September 20-26 in Haven, Whistling Straits, September 20-26. Wisc, will wear.
For Ralph Lauren it is the continuation of a partnership with the PGA of America as the official supplier of the American team. Ralph Lauren will also outfit all caddies and spouses / partners on the U.S. Ryder Cup team, including Vice Captain Davis Love III, a longtime Ralph Lauren brand ambassador. In addition to the training rounds and the three-day competition, the team wears clothing that has been created for the arrival, the opening ceremony and the welcome dinner.
The team’s training uniforms are made from first-class performance fabrics and show a fresh, modern approach to design. Founded in a classic American color palette of red, white and blue, Americana-inspired details bring a patriotic homage to the team’s clothing, with the brands “United We Stand” and “USA20” throughout the collection.
Official uniforms also include sweaters from the Polo Ralph Lauren Made to Order program, which uses on-demand technology and has each player’s name on the back for a personal touch. Off-course t-shirts are also available as part of the collection, depicting the Whistling Straits course and history, the iconic Polo Bear, as well as other notable graphic prints from the brand.
Each garment has been developed for the rigors of professional golf and is made from tech fabrics that offer optimal moisture-wicking properties and improved airflow. Polo shirts are designed to adapt to any turning radius, while pants are lightweight and flexible. Layered and bad weather items – including merino crew neck and half-zip pullovers, full-zip vests and stowable down jackets – are combined in the collection to provide comfort for the US Ryder Cup team in all conditions.
The iconic Cool Wool full-zip jacket also offers protection from the elements and features a new Ryder Cup-only camo pattern that represents the layout of the Whistling Straits course. In addition to the brand’s Design the Change strategy, the use of recycled polyester has been expanded to include golf products and incorporated into Ryder Cup uniforms, including lightweight airflow, terrycloth, poly-cotton t-shirts and performance jerseys.
Polo Ralph Lauren will be the tournament’s largest local apparel supplier with a variety of official Ryder Cup items for sale. Ralph Lauren’s team specifically designed the layout and display fixtures for its 17,900-square-foot area in the main Ryder Cup merchandise pavilion. The interior design inspiration was drawn from leading golf resorts around the world.
