Ralph Lauren unveils official 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup uniforms
Ralph Lauren is proud to unveil the Official 2016 United States Ryder Cup Team uniforms, continuing its partnership with the PGA of America as the Official Outfitter for the U.S. Ryder Cup Team. Grounded in an American color palette of red, white and blue, the team’s on course uniforms feature modern stripes and color blocking, accented with patriotic logos and graphics. Combining the rich heritage of the tournament with innovative performance fabrics, Ralph Lauren will outfit the U.S. Ryder Cup Team, including Captain Davis Love III with uniforms, outerwear and tailored clothing to be worn during play, Opening Ceremony and the welcome dinner during the 41st Ryder Cup, September. 27 – October 2, at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota.
Sleek, Americana-inspired details bring a distinct ethos to the team’s apparel. “United We Stand” is printed on the interior waistband of all competition pants, a United States flag is etched onto the reverse side of the team belt buckle and a new stars-and-stripes camo print appears on selected outerwear.
Engineered with the rigors of professional golf in mind, each garment is constructed with the highest quality tech fabrics, providing optimal moisture-wicking properties and enhanced airflow. Ergonomic polo shirts are designed to accommodate any swing radius, while tech-gab pants are lightweight and flexible. Layering and inclement-weather pieces including merino crewneck sweaters, pullover windbreakers and packable down jackets, as well as a seam sealed waterproof rain suit, are effortlessly fused into the collection to keep the U.S. Ryder Cup Team comfortable under all conditions.
The team will attend the Opening Ceremony dressed in classic navy doeskin blazers, spread-collar poplin shirts, customized club ties and charcoal trousers; captains will wear gray, rope-stripe suits. For the welcome dinner, players will wear crisp navy suits with matching solid ties and white poplin shirts, accented with white pocket squares. Captains will be attired in charcoal suits with black ties and dress shoes.
The Ralph Lauren Ryder Cup collection includes a timeless array of Polo Golf and RLX Golf apparel, and will be available for purchase on RalphLauren.com, shop.pga.com and in select golf clubs, resorts and retail stores. As part of the partnership, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the Ralph Lauren Ryder Cup Collection will benefit the PGA of America’s 41 Sections to grow and teach the game of golf, and PGA REACH, a program dedicated to positively impacting the lives of veterans, youth, and diverse populations through the game of golf.
Ralph Lauren’s partnership with the PGA of America reinforces the brand’s dedication to golf as well as its leadership in major global sporting initiatives. Ralph Lauren is committed as the Official Partner and Official Outfitter of the PGA Championship; the Official Outfitter of Ryder Cups conducted in the United States; and the Official Outfitter of every U.S. Ryder Cup Team through 2020.
