Robert Farago on Ralph Lauren I like Robert Farago's car reviews at TTAC, and I like Ralph Lauren's cars at the MFA, so I thought I'd enjoy Robert Farago's writings about Ralph Lauren's cars.
But I was wrong. I can't get past this oddball comment he made April 1 on TTAC (no direct link) "Lauren's cars are like Lauren's clothes: a way for the Jewish New YorkWhat? Where did that come from? Farago seems actually to have interviewed Lauren, so he knows more about the man than I do, but I'd like to know where that came from. On what does Farago base his conclusion? And is he so tone deaf that he can't hear those words the way many Jews will? Could we, for G d's sake, leave religion out of car collecting? UPDATE: Mr. Farago responded in email. His reply is after the jump. On to the merits. I still don't see the basis for assuming that his car collecting is based on a desire to emulate rich WASPs. I agree (it would be impossible not to agree) that Lauren's clothing business imitates the old English, except for knock off louis vuitton bracelet the parts that imitate the American West. I live in Boston, and the Polo store on Newbury is so WASPy I feel out of place inside. I actually come from a line of American Jews who strove so hard to assimilate in the late 19th century that louis vuitton alma amarante price there were Christmas trees in the family. So I know something about that topic. Maybe Mr. Lauren's whole car collection is based on wanting to be something other than what he was born, but I'd like to see the evidence. I don't feel that the quotation you sent is evidence of that. And I don't think the name change is either. Your TTAC post doesn't do anything but come to a conclusion, leaving readers to wonder what you mean, and what you base it on. I will amend my post to include your response. And, again, I appreciate your discussing these issues. If my last name were Lipshitz, I would change it too irrespective of what religion/culture/race it connoted. In other words, I would change my last name because of how it sounds and what people can cruelly twist it into, not because I was ashamed of my origins. (Trust me, Eversman has been bad enough, and I shudder to think of going through life with a name like Lipshitz.) Additionally, lots of people do things to emulate the aaa quality louis vuitton shoes "haves" in the society they grew up in that, again, does not necessarily mean they wish to eschew their own origins. The cars now popular at Barrett Jackson are perfect examples. We have moved into the era of the muscle car and away from the 50s and early 60s vehicles as the hot models. When I interviewed people in January, every one of the bidders to whom I spoke said that he wanted to buy a model that had been the dream car of his youth. I didn take their comments to indicate they were ashamed of their origins. I think it is fairly obvious that, to a person, they each wanted to relive a little of that fantasy from youth. Today, we have kids of many different racial backgrounds idealizing and emulating AA rappers. Does that mean they are ashamed of being white, or asian, or even jewish? I don think so. I think it boils down to the fact that they think rappers are cool.
So, why shouldn Ralph Lauren put a woody wagon in his collection? Besides, the quote only serves to show that Ralph was as brainwashed by The Donna Reed Show and Father Knows Best as was the rest of America. Gosh, I even know catholics who suffered under that ultra stylized, use the correct fork, vaccuum in your taffeta party dress and high heels routine. Does louis vuitton authentication ebay that mean they wanted to be WASPs too? I suppose now that the Pope is dead, they could sneak out and join the enemy without ever being noticed.
