    Ralph Lauren rolled out their new Denim & Supply line earlier this week. The company describes it as “A new approach to denim and sportswear, capturing the authentic character of found vintage pieces and effortlessly styling them with a young, individualistic spirit.” I describe it as Double RL with a more palpable price point.
