The Izod Lacoste shirt soo many people have been wearing and are still wearing is the creation of a black man by the name of Rene Lacoste, a French tennis player known by fans as “The Crocodile”, for his tenacity on the tennis court. He introduced the Lacoste shirt in 1929, and also the first tubular tennis racket, before then, all tennis rackets were made of wood. So, from now on, every time you’re home sitting back watching Serena Williams or Roger Federer playing tennis, while lounging in your Izod Lacoste shirt, think of this great man, Rene Lacoste, a great American inventor, innovator and pioneer.
