There are now countless different polo shirt collections from Lacoste, which are characterized by very high quality, attention to detail and expertise. But let's start from the beginning...

Storytime: The Rise of Lacoste

How did Lacoste become a global brand? In 1927, the French tennis player René Lacoste designed his first tennis shirt for his own use, with a characteristic rib fabric, which was advantageous for tennis because it was more breathable than other shirts. So far, tennis has been played in basic white tops. This resulted in the first polo shirt for tennis, also white, of course. René Lacoste chose a crocodile as the logo for his brand because his tennis teammate once promised him a suitcase made of crocodile skin if Lacoste won a match, and he has since been nicknamed “The Crocodile” by the press. However, his tough and ambitious character traits in the game have also been associated with a crocodile. In 1933, “La Chemise Lacoste” was registered as a trademark for the first time after the cooperation with the knitwear manufacturer André Gillier. Lacoste was the first company with a very visible logo on the clothes. What is also special here is that the logo is sewn on, while it is embroidered on competitors such as Polo Raph Lauren. From the early days, the brand went from strength to strength after entering into a licensing deal with US sportswear brand Izod, Lacoste becoming the Izod Lacoste brand and stars including John F. Kennedy wearing Lacoste clothing. In 1993, however, Izod and Lacoste parted ways and the French Lacoste SA took over the brand again, but since 2000 Lacoste has also been present again in America in the mid-range price segment. After that things happened very quickly: in 1958 the first tennis shoe dropped, in 1961 Lacoste filed a patent for its collar and in 1968 the first perfume “Eau de Sport” was launched. Traditional tennis clothing has been actively shaped and changed by Lacoste over the years and the range of Lacoste items on offer has expanded. The first Lacoste stores opened in 1981.
