International retailer Ralph Lauren takes a classic approach to a vintage look with Denim & Supply, which opened in May 2013 on upscale Newbury Street. The brand took over the space previously occupied by Rugby, also by Ralph Lauren, a prepster store formerly geared toward a college age crowd. Denim & Supply now pays homage to its American roots with many styles proudly displaying jean clothed mannequins, messenger bags, totes and scarves. Camouflage shirts, cargo pants, slim-fitting jeans, striped sweaters and trucker jackets round out the collection of Americana, which plays on the workaday aesthetic, though with pricier touches. A small selection of season-ending items and sale pieces are clustered at the back of the woody-and-metal heavy store.
