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.

What happened to my nice slimmer fit Lacoste. I have bought these t's for years. I ordered the same size as usual and it seems to have extra room for a big gut. I will try a smaller size, but I think will have the same problem.Read more » « Show less April 18, 2012 by Mmmm

I bought this shirt for my girlfriend. She had purchased this shirt a couple of years ago and still wears it; however, her old shirt has some holes in it. The new Lacoste V-Neck Tee Shirt is not fitted like the older version. It is not the same fabric either. We are disappointed with this new Lacoste design.Read more » « Show less June 26, 2012 by Anonymous

If you like a looser fit like I do, 36D, 145 lbs, I sized to a 44 Euro (12 US). The fit is like a ladies LRG. Standard finely woven tee but with alligator!

This tee is very soft and has an easy, casual weekend look to it. I liked it so much that I bought 3 of them! The fit is more of what I would term a "classic" fit; it is not a slim fit. I also found the tee to be true to size. Be sure to follow the drying instructions (hang dry or lay flat) or the 100% cotton tee will substantially shrink. I always put the tee on air dry for a few minutes, just to get any wrinkles out, then hang it to dry.

I really like the fact that the v-neck is not too deep. The shirt is so comfortable. I love it.
