High-quality fashions with authentic sporting roots define this specialty lifestyle brand that originated the classic men’s polo.
It all started in 1933 when French tennis pro René Lacoste revolutionized men’s fashions on the courts. He replaced the long-sleeved, starched shirt with what has now become the classic Lacoste polo. And a legend was born.
And the crocodile? Lacoste’s “alligator” nickname conveyed his tenacity against his competitors. And it made the perfect emblem for a brand that has come to symbolize elegance and performance.
Of course, there’s more to Lacoste than the polo. Our brand features timeless fashions for everyone. Men prefer our pants, tees, sport shirts, sweaters and outerwear, all in exquisite fabrics and fits. Women love our tops, tees, dresses, sweaters, pants and accessories in fashion cuts and colors. We even offer childhood classics from toddler to teen, all featuring the unmistakable crocodile.
From chic to sport, fashion to function, Lacoste is a champion.
