In 1933 René Lacoste designed for himself what would become a clothing item, symbol and icon of sportswear.
The idea was born, as always, from a need, that of the comfort of movements, of not having an uncomfortable collar and of being able to use light fabrics.
Here then is the birth of the polo shirt, a garment admitted to golf clubs while not a shirt.
It can be short or long-sleeved, plain or fancy and being a sports garment can also be worn outside the trousers.
It is important to underline that it can not and must never replace the shirt, free time is one thing, elegance is another.
