Lacoste Men's Casual Polo Shirts: The Original Polo

The crocodile logo that sits on the chest of every Lacoste men's polo shirt is an instantly recognisable icon all over the world. René Lacoste invented the polo shirt, and since then his brand has attracted thousands of fans. Join the club when you find Lacoste men's casual polo shirts on eBay.

Fits and styles of Lacoste men's polo shirt

What sets a Lacoste polo shirt apart from the competition? It's more than just that famous logo. There are so many thoughtful details that go into the production of these men's polos. Before you choose one, first think about the fit and look that you want to achieve.

  • The Classic Fit is the polo shirt originally invented by René Lacoste. Designed as sportswear, it is slightly loose and has spacious sleeves, to allow you to move comfortably while playing tennis, golf, or other sports.
  • The Regular Fit is closer to the type of smart-casual look that polos are known for nowadays. It sits close to the body, with less ease than the Classic Fit and tighter sleeves.
  • The Slim Fit is even slimmer, giving a more fitted style. When you wear a Lacoste Slim Fit polo, it still shouldn't be too tight. It should skim the body without being too close for comfort.
  • All three of these fits are produced in short sleeve and long sleeve variants. The short sleeve is a classic choice, but if you want to stay a bit warmer, then long sleeves will work well.
Lacoste polo shirt sizing

Unlike other brands, Lacoste uses its own unique size system, with numbers from 2 to 9. The 2 corresponds to an XS, while 9 is a 4XL. A medium shirt is a 4 on the Lacoste scale.

What materials are men's Lacoste polo shirts made of?

The original material favoured by René Lacoste, cotton pique, is still in common use. This is a light, breathable but durable fabric. For sporty purposes, you may prefer a jersey polo, which offers more freedom of movement thanks to its stretch. Lacoste performance polos are made of technical fabric with sweat-wicking abilities. The brand also regularly launches models made of different fabrics, such as cotton, wool, or blends.

How should you care for your Lacoste polo shirt?

To preserve the colour, you are advised to use cold water the first time you wash your polo shirt, and never wash it above 40C. Line-dry rather than using a tumble dryer if you can, and iron it inside out.
