For a hundred dollars per shirt, these things better be able to cook breakfast for me every morning.

I thought prices of racquets were rediculous, but almost 100 and even more than 100 dollars for a tennis shirt is just stupid.

It kind of all looks the same to me now. That shirt looks like one i bought a few years back.

I really hope you are joking!

It costs about $90 and is a plain white tennis shirt with a black collar and a bit of black around the seams.

Oh, it's got a very small green crocodile on it as well, I see where you're coming from now!

(I am joking with my last point)

I think the polos Roddick was wearing at the US Open were fantastic. I don't like the one he was wearing at Miami (the colors in the collar are terrible).

I have the white one from the 2009 US Open and I think it looks great.

LaCoste is a fashion franchise. Ask anyone in the retail business. They know how to market and how to control the market. They made some mistakes when they were with Izod, and they mass merchandised the stuff. It is all essentially the same, but it marketing. Go to a High School girls match. Lots of LaCoste shoes, why? Are they high quality, low price, a better shoe? NO to all, its fashion, and they know it.

The Euro stuff is much better than what we see in the states, but equally as pricey. I wish they would do more crew neck stuff/ anything other than the same polo designs year after year. color and prestige are their biggest selling points.

It's the ultimate tribute to marketing. When you buy a car that costs four times as much as another car, you can be pretty sure you're getting alot more content. But a $90 shirt and one you buy here on clearance for 20-25 seem to be pretty much the same thing, except for the "jerk" stigma of wearing the more expensive one.

I'm happy to see a return to normalcy in the bulk of these comments. Lacoste's clothes are absolutely overpriced and, just as significantly, out of whack with even the most top of the line gear by the other leading brands. The poster who referenced marketing is on the money: you're not buying more or better, you're buying status. But you show up with a $150+ shirt and shorts on my court, you better bring some game along too. And, oh yes, the styles are virtually all snoozers -- I like a few pieces here and there, but there's little stylistic or materials innovation here. Doesn't everybody recall how Roddick wore the same boring-*** white shirt and navy short combo for, like, 3 years!
