A polo shirt, also known as a golf shirt and tennis shirt, is a form of shirt with a collar, a placket with typically two or three buttons, and an optional pocket.
Renè Lacoste, the French seven-time Grand Slam tennis champion, felt that the stiff tennis attire was too cumbersome and uncomfortable.
He designed a white, short-sleeved, loosely-knit piquè cotton shirt with an unstarched, flat, protruding collar, a buttoned placket, and a shirt-tail longer in back than in front, which he first wore at the 1926 U.S. Open championship.
Beginning in 1927, Lacoste placed a crocodile emblem on the left breast of his shirts, as the American press had begun to refer to him as "The Crocodile",a nickname which he embraced.
POLO STYLE BY NOHOW.
