Many preps (well mannered intelligent people east coast) USED to wear lacoste but since it was released in to the materialistic world (eg. rappers and rich-snobby snobs who think there rich with thier escalades and big rims). Preps dont wear it as much.
Wiggar 2: yeahh...we gatta buy xxxl for dem booty ladies.
Real Prep: haha...they dont know what there talking about...
Guy 2- Yeah, I think it was a Lacoste.
Note: It's tacky to pop the collar on a Lacoste. A polo, definitely, but not a Lacoste. It's simply putting emphasis on the fact that you paid 72 bucks for it.
Me: Ugh, the collar's popped.
Friend: Isn't that what you're supposed to - ?
Me: NO! IT'S TACKY, BITCH!
Contrary to popular belief, the Lacoste symbol is a crocodile, not an aligator, after Rene Lacoste's (old school tennis player) nickname, "The Croc"
