Lacoste’s Approach to Men’s Fashion
René Lacoste was a professional tennis player who retired in the 1960’s to become a fashion designer. Lacoste was unaware of the future success of his label and was primarily interested in designing sportswear for athletes, as well as everyday men and women. Throughout the years, the label achieved world renowned success and has become one of the most talked about labels in the industry. Lacoste’s menswear collection consists of a wide variety of polo tees, long sleeved shirts, collared tees, athletic pants, jeans and running shoes. More importantly, Lacoste’s designs feature the crocodile label, one of the world’s most popular labels. The crocodile was Lacoste’s nickname as a tennis player.

Best Supporting Male
This label has become very popular among many types of men. From Hollywood actors to professional athletes, Lacoste has found its way into the closets of some of the most talented and famous individuals. Perhaps Lacoste’s biggest fan (possibly because they share a common interest) is professional tennis player and male heartthrob, Andy Roddick. This international superstar knows how to look good off the court as well.
Lacoste’s men’s clothing and accessories are priced quite affordably for most budgets. Generally, jeans and jackets are the most expensive, costing somewhere between $100 and $250 while dress shirts, tees and polos fall between $50 and $100. Accessories generally cost less and can be purchased for as low as $25 to as high as $75.
