Since its creation in 1933 by André Gillier and tennis player René Lacoste, Lacoste has bridged the gap between tennis clothing and everyday essentials. While tennis styles have long been popular in everyday life, only a handful of names have so seamlessly crossed over into popular culture. Lacoste’s crocodile is a symbol that's ever-present on the runways of Paris Fashion Week and the streets of Europe, and there’s one piece that epitomizes the French label’s popularity: the Lacoste polo shirt.

Virtually unchanged since its inception, the Lacoste polo shirt is a sartorial icon that crosses generations. A classic piqué construction gives way to a spread collar, the only embellishment being the tiny croc embroidered to the chest. It’s simple, yes, but when you’ve got a winning recipe, why change it? In honor of one of the most timeless pieces in a modern wardrobe, we’ve rounded up the best Lacoste polo shirts on the internet.
