As the old saying goes - necessity is the mother of inventions. In the history of the Lacoste brand, it works one hundred percent. Rene Lacoste was born in Paris in 1904 as the son of a wealthy entrepreneur. He was recommended to play sports by his father, and his father gave him a choice of several elite disciplines. Rene chose tennis, announcing that he would become a champion. He fulfilled his promise by winning Wimbledon and the US Open several times. In 1926 he appeared at the finals of the French Open in a t-shirt that did not resemble the outfit of then tennis players. It was made of cotton, had a soft collar and short sleeves. He caused great protests because tennis, as a sport for gentlemen, could not expose naked forearms. Performing in a T-shirt of his own design - he won. The interest in the invention was so huge that Rene Lacoste and a friend decided to start production before someone else competed. The brand was founded in 1933 and produced 300,000 a year. white t-shirts. The globally recognizable crocodile - the brand's logo - came from the nickname Rene, which was to symbolize his bravery.

He also made history as an inventor, it is his idea that the tennis ball launcher is used to this day. René Lacoste did not compromise - he was a titan of work, he trained more often and more than others. The nickname Aligator, given because of the characteristic folder made of reptile skin, quickly "stuck" to Lacoste, because it reflected his stubbornness and stubbornness on the court.

In 1926, Lacoste caused a fashion-sports scandal, appearing at the world championships in a white, short-sleeved cotton T-shirt he designed.
