The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and technology editor and analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin discusses whether or not Ralph Lauren is a buy. While the company has done an excellent job building a strong brand, Austin sees more reasons to worry than to be excited. Ralph Lauren also appears too reliant on Macy's to distribute their clothing and maintain their continued brand strength. Not having any other brands to build off of has Austin worried whether they'll always be able to maintain the reputation they have now.
