The green crocodile logo belongs to what clothing and apparel company?
Tennis player René Lacoste and entrepreneur André Gillier founded the clothing company Lacoste in 1933. The French brand is known for its iconic green crocodile logo. Lacoste was the number one ranked tennis player in 1926 and 1927 and was first given the nickname “the Crocodile” by the press after he bet his team captain a crocodile-skin suitcase that he would win his match. He was later redubbed “the Crocodile” by French fans because of his tenacity on the tennis court. After Lacoste retired from tennis, he started an apparel company to produce and sell crocodile-emblazoned shirts.
The correct answer is Lacoste.
