The New

With just 12 strategically placed stores, Ralph Lauren's Ivy League off-shoot had a somewhat limited reach. That's since changed, with the relaunch of an e-commerce enabled website. Meaning you're just a click away from well-made pieces that masterfully mix classic collegiate style with modern tailoring. But Ralph, if you're reading this, a word of note: An entire Flash-based website sure makes for some nice videos, but all those bells and whistles can really weigh down an online experience.

  • The Georgetown store is the only location with an attached cafe. The Iggy's Burger is arguably the best burger in the city. $10, at Rugby Cafe, Washington, DC.
