Lacoste Polo: a real clothing revolution in the world of tennis
A true emblem of an inimitable and timeless sport-chic style, the polo made its appearance on French tennis courts in the 1920s. At that time, tennis inflicted on players a rather strict dresscode, which consisted of a long-sleeved shirt, buttoned at the wrists and city pants.
Looking for a way to gain an advantage over his opponents, Jean-René Lacoste, world number one in 1927, asked a fashion designer to create a shirt inspired by polo players to which a collar would be added. This is how Lacoste polo was born. In addition to the design, this revolutionary shirt is made out of pique cotton, a special cotton whose weave allows for better ventilation and more strength than the traditional shirt.
