The Lacoste legend was born in 1933, by French tennis champion René 'The Crocodile' Lacoste. The lifestyle label was born when multiple Grand Slam winner, René Lacoste created the first polo shirt ever, initially for himself and for his friends, to be both relaxed and elegant on and off the tennis courts. The 'Crocodile' moniker he was given in his heyday is the inspiration behind the brand's iconic logo and embroidered brand patch. The brand still lives on today, creating sportswear apparel and accessories for men and women with a preppy twist. From performance-enhancing hoodies to off-duty sweatshirts, Lacoste's collection of sweats offer relaxed looks for everyday wear.
