This summer our Lacoste collection will be bigger and brighter
than ever. Rene Lacoste was one of the famous "musketeers"
who raised the standing of tennis in France to that of a great
sport. He invented the style of "casual elegance".
To obtain greater freedom of movement and more comfort during
his matches, he created a lightweight, open-weave, short sleeved
white knit shirt with a ribbed collar: the celebrated Lacoste
polo shirt was born. Today, there are 90 variations of the
Lacoste polo. Classic or trendy, they are offered in a wide
choice of fabrics and an array of colors.
Lacoste was nicknamed the crocodile as a result of a bet.
The fans were quick to pick up on the nickname, which epitomized
the young player’s amazing tenacity on the court. When
the time came to select an emblem for the Lacoste brand, the
crocodile was the natural choice. The symbolism is evocative:
patient and powerful, the crocodile is a faithful representation
of a brand that focuses on longevity, a consistent style and
an uncompromising commitment to quality.
One of our more sought after accessory items are Steiner Binoculars.
We carry the largest selection of Steiner Marine Binoculars
in northern Michigan.
