Georgetown losing Ralph Lauren, bastion of prep
Prepsters despair: the Washington Business Journal reports that the “RRL” Ralph Lauren location at 1069 Wisconsin Avenue—which, who knew, “stocks their vintage-inspired line”—is closing on February 21.
I also learned too late that the store, which opened in 2007, is pronounced “double R-L.”
At least there’s still Rubgy next door to gaurd Georgetown’s hoity-toity reputation. And Lacoste. And Banana Republic, J.Crew, and Tommy Hilfiger.
And, as Jon points out in comments, the Ralph Lauren location up the street, which I should’ve specified is not closing.
