Lacoste is best known for their line of polo style shirts emblazoned with a tiny alligator patch on the upper left side of the chest. These shirts are a preppy classic that become popular in the 1980s and remain so today. The Lacoste line of eyewear is similar, in that it is both preppy and timeless.
Lacoste eyewear is designed for both men and women, and is available as standard sunglasses, prescription sunglasses, and prescription eyeglasses. Although some of the standard sunglasses are slightly more colorful than their prescription line, they remain in the cool preppy category thanks to their tiny striped patterns and sedate blue and green colors.
The prescription line features frames made of acetate. Most of them have classic squared off eye shapes complete with rounded edges, and come in colors like deep green, black and tortoiseshell. Each pair features the trademark Lacoste crocodile on each side of the earpieces, close to the temple. The crocodiles are small enough to keep them from being ostentatious; while also large enough to show the world that you are wearing a pair of Lacoste frames.
If you are looking for a pair of eyeglasses that will never go out of style, as well as ones that are staid enough to fit in with the rest of your wardrobe, then look for further than Lacoste eyewear.
