The polo shirt is a garment invented by famous tennis player Rene Lacoste. He was not the first to appear to lay tennis in polo.
The most important thing, besides the design, is that Polo made on the basis of a special cotton called “piqué cotton”. Its special fabric provides better ventilation and more durability than a traditional shirt, while maintaining a certain degree of elegance.
The success quickly gained in popularity, and since the 1940s, tennis players themselves called their shirts "polos", although they used them long before polo players, until they became the favorite clothing of golfers.
