Get a warmer outer layer that still fits in with the classic preppy look that Lacoste not only does so well, but literally invented. Today, Lacoste might be a household name. But back in the 1920s, they were created by tennis pro René Lacoste as a still smart but athletic alternative to the half-a-suit tennis uniform of the time. A men's Lacoste jumper still looks just right at the side of the court, but it's also a great option when you're out about town or whenever you want to project a look of smart, confident athleticism. Choosing a Lacoste zip jumper lets you edge your look towards that classic preppy style.
