052714_Rene-Lacoste-Stylish

The French Open kicked off this weekend and it reminded us of how tennis players have been, historically speaking, a pretty stylish bunch.

Perhaps the guys on the courts today aren’t as stylish as the ones back when René Lacoste and Fred Perry were chasing down lobs, but if you look at a number of players’ great contributions to sportswear, it’s quite impressive. Simple, enduring classics that still look as good today as they did in the 1930 or the 1970s.

In fact, you could stylishly outfit yourself from head to toe in gear fashioned by tennis icons…
