The sporting brand with the crocodile has it all. Not only high quality clothing is one of the portfolio by Lacoste, but also shoes, eyewear, perfumes and watches. Doing everything with a polo shirt began that was invented by the tennis player René Lacoste. But the crocodile was before. Confusing? Not at all:
René Lacoste was initially known as tennis players. He won including the bronze medal at the Olympic Games in 1924, and was one of the leading tennis players in the world in the 1920s. He got his nickname “the crocodile” in 1927, not only because of his fighting spirit, but also because of a bet. René Lacoste described this way: “the American press has been nicknamed”the crocodile”me, due to a bet with the captain of the French DAVIS COUP team.” He promised me a suitcase crocodile leather if I win an important match for our team. The American public has remembered this nickname, which reflected my toughness on the tennis court – I just can’t let go of my victims! My friend Robert George designed for me a crocodile, I embroider left on the Blazer I wore on the tennis court.”

At that time, it was still common to wear long-sleeved, starched shirts in the practice of sport – not comparable with the present functional sports clothing! René Lacoste designed cotton shirts in comfortable knitwear, which could absorb sweat and heat more pleasant to wear for his personal needs. In cooperation, the industrial production of the Polo shirts, wearing the crocodile trademark began in 1933 with the stocking manufacturer André Gillier. The first shirts were of course white by the closely related to the sport of tennis. But why do they wear Polo and not tennis in the name? Due to its comfortable properties, the Polo Shirt quickly in other sports became the preferred garment, such as golf or horseback riding. When Ralph Lauren 1972 took the pique shirts in his Polo collection, it must be happened – the garment got his name.
