    Beret – $55
    Tie – $125
    Belt – $85
    Shirt – $425
    Blazer – $795

    Beret – $55
    Scarf – $58

          The size of the Ralph Lauren logo bothers me on many levels. Really... the focus should be on the sport, the athletes, and/or the country -- NOT the doofus designing the clothes.
