Doug Bihlmaier

Occupation: Head of Ralph Lauren Vintage

Love RRL? You have this man to thank. Even The Sartorialist had no idea that Doug Bihlmaier was responsible for the nostalgic, workwear feel of many of Ralph Lauren's facades and RRL line, because at first glance, he either comes off as an eccentric artist, or... an unemployed bum. Regardless, Bihlmaier's actually been an integral part of the Ralph Lauren team since the 1980s, starting out as one of the first stylists, developing looks for ad campaigns and stores. Now he gets to travel the world and look for the coolest old items to decorate the stores.
