If you play tennis, you’d have to thank Rene Lacoste for obliterating cumbersome tennis whites with his creation, the tennis/polo shirt. If you don’t you’ll still get to enjoy the ease and comfort that this elegant garment provides. Cut in a lightweight pique cotton that expels moisture from the body quickly, it will keep you feeling cool throughout the day. Perfect for those of us living in tropical climes. 

This season, Lacoste has kicked off a customisation service that is complimentary with any polo shirt purchase. This service allows you to put up to 3 initials either on the right sleeve or right shirt hem, in three different font types and two sizes. Limited edition motifs will be introduced during specific seasons as well so be sure to check in store. 

The entire process takes around 15 minutes to complete. You can pick out a polo and customise it, head around the corner for a coffee and return to have a gift-wrapped, personalised item for yourself or that special someone. And if you’re not convinced about its versatility, we’ve styled the Lacoste polo in 3 ways that will bring you from day off to date night.

1. Cotton Blazer ($669), 2. Pique cotton polo shirt ($129), 3. Calf-leather sneakers ($199), 4. Cotton chinos ($179), all Lacoste

Look 1. Date Night

Going on a date and fretting over what to wear? Just pair your favourite Lacoste polo with a neat navy blazer and slacks and you’re done. Keep your white sneakers pristine by wiping them down with a damp cloth and some soap each time they’re worn.

1. Logo cap ($49), 2. Pique cotton polo ($129), 3. Technical windbreaker ($329), 4 Cotton shorts ($129)

Look 2. Boat Trip

Don this look if you’re heading out to sea or even for a trek. Keep the glare out with a handy cap, and if the weather takes a turn for the worse, you’ve got a water-resistant technical windbreaker on hand.

1.  Long sleeved pique cotton polo ($139), 2. Calf-leather sneakers ($199), 3. Nylon backpack ($149), 4. Cotton shorts ($129), all Lacoste

Look 3. Café Trawling

Having a day off doesn’t mean you slack off on style. Keep things sharp with a smart long sleeved polo paired with shorts. The burgundy sneakers ground the look. Stash your spoils from the day in a utilitarian backpack instead of lugging around unsightly paper bags.
