The history of Lacoste and Lacoste sunglasses

Rene Lacoste was a French tennis player, who was number one in his time.

The Lacoste logo is always embossed on every product of the Lacoste brand, which means that it is their signature mark. The brand was founded in 1933 and is still alive and vibrant today.

Lacoste was famous for being very stubborn and pursuing his opponent till defeat. His dad was very harsh and had warned him to quit tennis, if he didn’t become a world champion in the subsequent five years. The opponent was always under pressure and gave in to his demands.

The Lacoste has an interesting background story as Rene Lacoste was nicknamed the alligator. He struck a deal with the captain of Davis Cup team America. He had made a bet that, if he won the match, he would own the crocodile skin suitcase and that happened. He won the match and was labeled the alligator. He started a company called Lacoste with Andre Giller. It was called La Chemise Lacoste.

Basically, Lacoste was dealing in tennis shirts only and the logo was there on the outside. Then, expanding further it went into hats, wallets and sunglasses.

Quality management and testing is efficient

The Lacoste sunglasses are so famous and the sole reason is the quality materials they employ.
