Towelgate


In a previous post, I said the following:

"The regular Ralph Lauren towels are crap."

I'm here to amend that statement.

Eleven years ago, we received a set of RL towels as a gift. They lasted about 8 years. They were fabulous.

Three years ago, we bought a set of RL towels. They lasted about a year. They totally fell apart--the seams came undone, they stayed soft for about a month. Very disappointed.

One year ago, we received a set of RL towels as a gift. They are fabulous. They are still soft, the seams are fine, we use them all the time.

So when I made the statement above, you can imagine the set I was envisioning. Not, say, the fabulously fabulous set that my best friend gave me because she is perhaps the most considerate and best gift giver in the world. For example.

Perhaps the better statement would have been "Ralph Lauren's towels are inconsistent, and you may receive a crap set. Or maybe not. They may, in fact, be great."

And that, my friends, is all I've got to say about that.

I bought RL towels in two colors last year--the Fuschia ones are still fluffy blindingly gorgeous; the tangerine are losing their color and getting thin. Go fig.
