One more reason to love the Argentine

Darlings: Did I tell you Sparky and I may visit Buenos Aires this winter? And here I thought tango would be the only lure: Ralph Lauren is featuring Argentinian polo player Ignacio Figueras (above, and left) in promotions for his new line of Black Watch fashions. Pictured left: Figueras in a Custom-Fit Black Watch Polo, $125. Lauren's new label comes as the designer has reached a rapprochement of sorts with the polo industry on which he built his fashion empire: He's now sponsoring a professional polo team, Black Watch, which swings in the Hamptons and in Palm Beach, the New York Times says.
