I wanted to give props to Lacoste for the 40 years of sponsoring one of the best tourneys on the planet, Roland Garros. Of course, I needed to start with the great kits they gave their lady ballers this year (love the boys, too, but I showed my appreciation already), in this case Sam Stosur + Alize Cornet, and the outfits for the chair umpires and line judges:
The French sportswear brand has also dedicated a section of their website to mark this milestone:
It features a fun video highlighting their heritage, the 2011 Roland Garros Collection and a special edition polo and t-shirt for men and women celebrating the partnership:
Each piece showcases a triple logo: the iconic crocodile, the Roland Garros trophy and the official RG logo.
So, if you get the chance check it out!
