René Lacoste entered the legend of tennis when he and his teammates "The Musketeers", stole the Davis Cup away from the Americans for the first time in 1927. Not forgetting his three French Open victories (1925, 1927 and the Roland-Garros stadium in 1929), his two victories in Great Britain (Wimbledon 1925 and 1928) and two U.S. Open titles at Forest Hills (1926 and 1927).
René Lacoste was born in France on July 2, 1904 and died on October 12, 1996. The true story of the "Crocodile" begins in 1927. René Lacoste liked to recount how his nickname became an emblem recognized throughout the world.
"I was nicknamed 'the Alligator' by the American press, after I made a bet with the Captain of the French Davis Cup Team concerning a suitcase made from crocodile skin. He promised to buy it for me if I won a very important match for our team. The public must have been fond of this nickname which conveyed the tenacity I displayed on the tennis courts, never letting go of my prey! So my friend Robert George drew a 'crocodile', which I then had embroidered on the blazer I wore on the courts."
An attentive spectator at René Lacoste’s Davis Cup matches was the winner of the British Women’s golf title, Mademoiselle Simone Thion de la Chaume, who soon became his wife and constant support.
In 1933, René Lacoste and André Gillier, the owner and President of the largest French knitwear manufacturing firm of that time, set up a company to manufacture the logo-embroidered shirt. The champion had designed this for his own use on the tennis court, as well as a number of other shirts for tennis, golf and sailing - as can be seen in the first catalogue, produced in 1933.
To the best of our knowledge, this was the first time that a brand name appeared on the outside of an article of clothing - an idea which has since become extremely successful.
This shirt revolutionized men’s sportswear and replaced the woven fabric, long-sleeved, starched classic shirts. The first Lacoste shirt was white, slightly shorter than its counterparts, had a ribbed collar, short sleeves with ribbed bands and was made of a light knitted fabric called "Jersey petit piqué".
Today, it continues to offer the same quality, comfort and solidity on which it built its name and which constitutes its uniqueness.
As an enduring legacy, the Lacoste brand has widely expanded over the years. Its famous crocodile emblem can now be seen on shoes, eyewear, watches, bedding, bath towels, bags, accessories, kid's shoes, as well as apparel.
Lacoste Men's Textured Robe
Awesome robe by lacste. I love hoe it feels and fits my body. The only issue I had at the beginning was that a couple threads broke loose from the fabric so I had some danglers. I just cut them and haven't had any more problems.

My husband wanted a new robe with the key conditions of "manly" which he believes removes all the spa and/or plush robes, and warm but not too hot. This robe was perfect - he kept it! And, of course, Zappos shipping and service was amazing as always.

I bought this for my husband who was reluctant to give up his old frayed threadbare favorite robe. He was pleasantly surprised to find this great quality, thick, soft comfy all cotton replacement.

The robe is warm! Winter mornings are going to be a lot more comfortable. Also, being a 'stout fellow' I find that getting a robe to wrap around is a challenge. I got the largest available, and it fit...much to my surprise. I'm 6'3" and 270 lbs, so figure it out for yourself. Even with that girth, it still wraps around nicely. My only complaint, and this is minor, is I would like the belt to be about another 6 inches to a foot longer. The belt feels ever so slightly short. But this is not enough to truly affect my score. Even with this minor problem, it's still a great robe.

My Dad had just gotten out of ICU and was doing rehabilitation at home and wanted a robe. After several unsuccessful days of trying of finding them in retail stores - I went to Zappos. It arrived quickly and was perfect!
