Polo shirts: perfect for all occasions

Would you be surprised to know that polo shirts are actually “tennis shirts”? The polo shirt actually did not originate from the sport of polo, but rather from the sport of tennis. At one time, tennis players wore button-down shirts, ties and flannel trousers while playing, which obviously presented problems for comfort and ease of movement. In the 1920s the French tennis champion Rene Lacoste decided to do something about that and came up with a loose short-sleeved shirt made of knit pique cotton to wear to the 1926 U.S. Open championship. If his name rings a bell, that’s because he went on to form the now-famous company Chemise Lacoste to market his shirts in the 1930s. The small crocodile embroidered on the left breast of the shirts came from the nickname given to Lacoste by the American press during his championship days. Once polo players became aware of Lacoste’s comfortable new invention, they quickly adopted it for their own sport. It wasn’t until the 1970s however that Ralph Lauren prominently featured the style as part of his Polo collection, complete with a tiny embroidered polo player on the breast, thereby helping to cement the shirt in the popular mind as a “polo” shirt rather than a “tennis” shirt. Today polo shirts play an important role in both business and fashion. In the corporate world they are considered dressier...
