What distinguished René Lacoste's polos from the traditional 1926 tennis shirts? His polo had short sleeves, was made of piqué cotton and had a tennis tail that made it easy to insert the polo. A few years later, 1933, the tennis player and his partner André Gillier opened La Chemise Lacoste and started producing polos. The famous crocodile logo of the brand comes from the nickname le crocodile that Lacoste received for his perseverance on the tennis court. Even before the company was founded, the logo was on display at Lacoste in 1927. This was due to a fan drawing he had received the same year. Today, Lacoste is known for its polo shirts, sportswear, eyewear, perfume and watches.
