Ralph Lauren reimagines its most celebrated product with a revolutionary new addition to the Create-Your-Own customization program: Introducing The Made-to-Order Polo, the ultimate expression of the iconic Polo shirt.
With Polo Ralph Lauren’s new high-end program, you can customize everything down to the size and color of the pony logo.
The Made-to-Order Polo is the company’s latest offering using its on-demand manufacturing model—with no pre-made inventory, every product is individually created per each customer’s unique specifications. The Polo is crafted with flat-knit technology for a soft feel and a luxurious drape and is available in six designs and 24 color
Ralph Lauren’s fans can create hundreds of designs by choosing the color or color-block of the body, sleeves and
collar; and can customize the sleeve with letters, words or initials through a digitally integrated experience. Graphic designs, additional customization options, logos and limited editions will be available in the coming months with programmed releases throughout the year.
This new program has both immediate and long-term benefits, including reducing product inventory, allowing for rapid fulfillment and agility in meeting consumer desires and taste, eliminating the need for markdowns. Unlike traditional cut-and-sew production methods, where patterns are cut from yardage and assembled, each Made-to-Order Polo is knit on demand with the panel pieces coming directly off the knitting machine knit to size, resulting in minimal material wastage.
