The term "polo" derives from the original shirt used by polo players, made of cotton with a button-down collar and long sleeves, known as a polo-shirt. However, the modern polo shirt as we know it today can be attributed to René Lacoste, a famous French tennis player of the 1920s, nicknamed "the Crocodile" for his tenacity on the court. It is this image of the crocodile that has become the iconic logo of the Lacoste brand.
Before Lacoste's innovation, tennis players wore long-sleeved shirts with stiff collars, which were not particularly comfortable or practical for the game. In 1926, Lacoste created a short-sleeved shirt with a soft collar that could be raised to protect the neck from the sun. The shirt was made of cotton piqué, a lightweight and breathable fabric.
Lacoste began producing these shirts on a large scale starting in 1933, and since then, they have become popular not only in tennis but also in casual fashion in general. Today, polo shirts have become a fundamental component of both men's and women's wardrobes, known for their simplicity, comfort, and versatility as they can be worn for various occasions and purposes.
