The origin of Polo as we know it today comes from a Frenchman. Renée Lacoste, number one tennis player in the 1920s, sought to imagine a more comfortable alternative to the cumbersome shirts worn during matches of the time. It was by shortening the sleeves, the buttonhole and using a fabric that was still new for the time: cotton Piqué, that he found the recipe and gave birth to the garment that we know today. Even if, the form has evolved somewhat, we have kept all the codes of this garment, the use of piqué cotton, innovative for the time, still brings today more ventilation and flexibility to this garment compared to a normal shirt.
