About Lacosted

Gold Lacoste CrocodileLacosted is dedicated to covering the latest news about Lacoste, Izod,  and other related “polo shirt” fashion lines such as Ralph Lauren. It’s the work of someone who is a big fan of both the looks and the brands, but it has no connection to any of the brands or their parent corporations.

The most popular posts on the site relate to detecting counterfeit Lacoste merchandise such as fake shirts, fake sneakers or fake tote bags, but we also cover a wide variety of news about Lacoste’s new releases and marketing events.  Our articles on the History of Lacoste, Rene Lacoste and Andre Gillier, the co-founder of Lacoste, and the posts on the original Lacoste polo shirt and the original Ralph Lauren polo shirt  and detecting counterfeit Ralph Lauren polos also do well. Recently, one of the most common search queries driving traffic to this site is whether Rene Lacoste was black?  Short answer: no, Rene Lacoste was not black.

While we are hosted in North America, traditionally the majority of our traffic is from the Philippines, which is Lacoste’s best market in Asia. However, this traffic pattern has changed in 2022, and the majority of traffic is now from the United States and increasingly the United Kingdom (Britain).
