Going far beyond the classic Polo shirt, Ralph Lauren's clothing is the pinnacle of sport, fashion, and Americana. Outfitting Team USA in the 2018 Winter Olympics might be the latest example of their influence and hold over the American imagination, but one of the brand's most iconic collections is actually inspired by a lesser known sport — yacht sailing.
In 1992, the brand was the official sponsor for the San Diego Yacht Club's America 3 boat (pronounced America cubed) in the America's Cup yacht racing competition. The following year, Ralph Lauren celebrated their win with the CP-93 Collection, which drew inspiration from the team's uniforms and other nautical elements like sailboats, regatta flags, anchors, and bold color blocking.
Now, 25 years since the original release, the brand is bringing back the CP-93 Collection just in time for summer. The collection includes re-issues of classic pieces from the original 1993 collection as well as re-imagined designs inspired by the originals.

The collection includes polos, t-shirts, windbreakers, sweaters, sweatshirts, shorts, swimsuits, and more — and with pieces for men, women, and children, the entire family can get fitted.
Whether you're a die-hard Polo collector or someone simply searching for fashionable, timeless pieces to wear on the boat or beach this summer, you'll find exactly what you're looking for in the Ralph Lauren CP-93 Collection.
