Lacoste

The famous crocodile

"Game and victory alone are not enough. Even the style has to be mastered. " This quote comes from René Lacoste, one of the best tennis players ever, and founder of the French hit company Lacoste. At the beginning of the 20th century, the sports uniform considered appropriate is very buttoned, the athletes should eventually act as gentlemen. Not very practical, finds René Lacoste and makes his long-sleeved sports top with a few cuts without further ado to a casual polo shirt - and begins in 1933 the revolution of the tennis racket. Even today, Lacoste stands for a classically elegant French style, which is loosened up by a sporty twist and ensures a casual look that is both timeless and modern.

What is behind the famous Lacoste polo shirt?

If you think of Lacoste, then the classic polo shirt with the little green crocodile logo will come to mind first. And rightly so, since no other company has perfected the design and manufacture of a polo shirt like the French company, after all, it is the cornerstone of Lacoste’s success. Although the designs are constantly based on new fashion trends, the basic manufacturing processes remained the same in Troyes, France. A Lacoste polo shirt is produced in five steps: 1. The classic Lacoste polo shirt is made of petit piqué. This is created by a special process on a circular loom, in which high-quality cotton is woven. Petit Piqué is a very durable, durable and flexible material. In addition, it looks sporty-elegant in clothing and ensures high comfort. 2. In the second step, the woven material is dyed in the desired color. 3. After dyeing, cut the Petit Piqués into the individual elements of a polo shirt. 4. The next step is to sew on the embroidered crocodile logo. Alone for the production of the logo 1,200 stitches are needed. 5. Finally, the individual fabric elements are sewn together manually. This creates a unique polo shirt in an elaborate process using the highest quality materials.

How did the crocodile logo from Lacoste come about?

The small green crocodile stands unmistakably for the French company Lacoste. The crocodile logo originated from a bet made by René Lacoste and his trainer Alan Muhr. While Lacoste was in Boston with his Davis Cup team, he spotted a case of crocodile skin. His coach promised to buy the suitcase should he win the match. A journalist from the Boston Evening Transcript got the bet and soon developed from the joke-talk Lacoste’s new nickname “The Alligator”, from which later developed the crocodile logo. The logo was then designed in 1927 by the artist Robert George.
