A history of Lacoste
We have all heard of Armani, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger. And there is just one clothing company that is the arch-rivals of these brands for years – Lacoste. Rene’ Lacoste founded La Chemise Lacoste in 1933 when his mates and he, known as ‘the musketeers,’ stole the Davis Cup from the Americans. The crocodile logo of the company comes from the name ‘The Alligator’, given by the American media to Rene. Over the years the company has been producing world class clothes, and is one of the leading brands for sportswear and casual wear.
Lacoste polo and Lacoste men’s shoes are among the company’s top selling products. The Lacoste polo shirts and t-shirts are extremely popular among men and women who often play golf or spend casual weekends with friends and family. The polo tees are made of elite cotton and come in light shades. The Lacoste men’s shoes are the pick of those people who play tennis and those who prefer lighter footwear on a pair of khakis. The newly released retro style men’s shoes are fast catching up in the American Rap circuit.
The Lacoste polo shirt revolutionized men’s sportswear and replaced the woven fabric, long-sleeved, starched classic shirts. An interesting fact is that the first ever produced Lacoste shirt was white, slightly shorter than other brands. It had a ribbed collar, short sleeves with ribbed bands and was made of a light knitted fabric called Jersey petit piqué.
The Lacoste repel men’s tennis shoes is one of the finest quality footwear the company has to offer. It is a pair of high performance stylish shoes that combines the latest technical developments with elegance and class. I bought a pair of the Lacoste repel men’s tennis shoes last month for my summer tennis classes.
Today, the company continues the legendary work and produces exceptional clothing and footwear for those who choose quality, comfort and solidity above anything.
