We can expect to see some familiar Edgartown locations in glossy advertisements to come: Models, photographers and the rest of a production crew for Polo Ralph Lauren's Chaps fashion line have been in town for a series of shoots.
Patch noticed them earlier this week outside a stately home on Fuller Street that turns out to be the longtime summer residence of Polo Ralph Lauren employee Olivia Weeks's family.
Assistants fetched garments from vans, held light reflectors, blew air at the model's hair and listened to classic rock sides by Neil Young ("Everybody Knows This is Nowhere") and David Bowie ("Life on Mars," "Oh You Pretty Things") as we watched from a window across the street.
A crew member confirmed the shoot was for print ads to come.
