Ralph Lauren "Design Your Own" Polo t-shirt

I dropped by Harrods in Knightsbridge last week to have a look at Ralph Lauren's "Design Your Own" range. A Ralph Lauren Polo t-shirt is such a classic wardrobe staple, I am sure many of us have quite a few in our wardrobes. With "Design Your Own", we now have the option to customise our Polo t-shirts in many different variations.

In store, we can go through the iPad application where in a few simple steps, our very own customised Polo t-shirt comes to life. To start off, we choose a base colour of the shirt. There are currently 9 colours to choose from their 'custom fit' range. I am a classic EU48 and a size "M" fits me great. Per above, I picked a classic red Polo t-shirt as my base colour.

We can then select the size of the Polo logo, as well as the colour. If logo is not your thing, we can choose to have our initials instead. The possibilities and choices are really endless.

I picked a small golden Polo logo on the chest, and also decide to have my initials on the bottom of the shirt. As seen above, there are many choices in terms of font sizes and styles. With the iPad application in store, we can preview the final style before committing to an order.

What I find really amazing is, they deliver 3 times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you go to Harrods and order your customised Polo t-shirt today, the product will be ready for collection on Friday. The quick turnaround is perfect for the festive season, and I personally think this makes a great Christmas gift. A personalised present always go a long way.

The classic off the rack Polo t-shirt retails for £70 in stores. The "Design Your Own" Polo t-shirt retails for £80. For that little bit extra, we have the customisation option, and it comes beautifully gift boxed per the top picture. Amazing, no?

  1. Ralph Lauren has done this with their Rugby brand in the US for a while with a bigger selection of options. It must be successful if they're bringing it up to their Polo brand.
