11. Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren is one of the names on this list that could be considered the most affordable. Along with their higher end lines, they also have more affordable pieces like The Polo Sport Line (which opened in 1993), that are sold at more reasonably priced department stores like Macy’s.
The company was founded in 1967 by designer Ralph Lauren. Since then, it has adopted many sub-labels including Ralph Lauren Black Label, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, Ralph Lauren Blue Label, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Club Monaco and Chaps.
The label has always excelled at creating modern and sophisticated looks out of sporty attire, always with a splash of vibrant color. In 2014, the luxury brand declared $776 million in income.
