NEW YORK — Jeff Sherman, president and chief operating officer of Polo Ralph Lauren Retail, is retiring.
Sherman joined Polo in 2004, reporting directly to Roger Farah, president and chief operating officer of Polo Ralph Lauren. Sherman helped grow the company's global retail business significantly over the past four years, and, as part of Farah's team, made a significant contribution to its success. His management also was instrumental in developing a new operating model critical to the brand's global retail rollout.
Over the past few years, Polo expanded internationally with major flagships opening in cities such as Milan, Tokyo and Moscow.
Sherman had joined Polo with a 30-year history in retail. Prior to his latest role, he was chief executive officer of Limited Stores, where he was in charge of almost 375 stores. During his career, he also has served as chairman and ceo of Federated Direct and held a number of senior posts at Bloomingdale's, first as chief financial officer and later as president and ceo.

This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
