Founded in 1933 by French tennis star René Lacoste and knitwear mogul André Giller, Lacoste is the classy choice for the sophisticated at play. René’s nickname on the court was ‘The Crocodile’, and the company adopted one of the most recognizable logos ever: the ubiquitous green croc. The polo shirt is the classic, near-perfect in cut, simplicity, and style, needing scarcely any change over the decades. There is more to Lacoste than polos, though: their bags, shirts, caps, and dresses have a huge fan base everywhere in Canada. With quality and style like this, Lacoste is deservedly at the top of the casual-chic mountain.
