In 1933, René Lacoste tennisesset began a collaboration with the knitwearmogulen André Gillier. The goal was to create a new kind of sweater that would work well out on the course. The result was a white, short shirt with short sleeves, made of the then revolutionary material jersey petit piqué. What we nowadays say Polo.
