French Clothing Great Bernard Lacoste Dies

Why is this so important, you ask? Well, my husband has a slight obsession with Lacoste shirts.

It’s a sickness, people.

Don’t believe me?


Thank you, Mr. Lacoste. Thank you for outfitting my husband 365 days of the year.

    I agree with the other ladies – he looks amazing, so even if it is a sickness at least its an easy one to deal with.

    Commenters remorse! I feel bad–I hope you know I didn’t mean hilarious in a bad way, I mean hilarious in a cute, endearing way!

    And I love when people have a “signature” style.

    Rosie, you are too sweet! And yes, it is hilarious in a “cute, endearing way”, but also in a freakish OCD way, too. ;)

    I’m contemplating showing you the other half of my husband’s closet…it isn’t quite so organized. In fact, I don’t know how he finds a damn thing in there. :)

    I wish Matt would wear a Lacoste shirt just once. Sigh. I love my mad scientist, but it’s a rare occasion to see him dressed up. And yes, “dressed up” means Lacoste.

    I just wish I could my husband to wear something in COLOR… other than blue, olive, or black. Occasionally, he’ll wear a dark red. He refuses to wear bright colors. *sigh*

    Good lookers can wear any damn thing they choose and carry it off! Good for him. It’s almost like a “Be True to your School” look. I love it!

    HaHa! That’s great! (I’ll say it as well, the shirt part, not the death)

    That picture of his hanging shirts is actually a really nice photo! I love how he not only loves his shirts, but loves to pop that collar, you can’t wear those without completing that last step ; )

    Wait, so the other half of his closet is messy? So he only organizes the Lacoste shirts? That IS a sickness!

    That closet photo is hilarious. Does he also have a slight obsession with not showing his teeth in photos? :) But you guys are such a cute couple…

    You make a pretty couple. And it is sad that he died. My first job was working in an Izod store.

    Oh my God. It’s hilarious that the collars are popped even on the hangers. Hehehehe. Is that the Miami Vice soundtrack I hear playing?

    The only thing that would make this slightly better is if the shirts were color coordinated in the closet.

    I remember when I was a teenager back in Queens, NY being so intimidated by someone wearing a Lacoste shirt. It signified wealth, yachts, and polo playing guys who vacationed at Newport. Then I realized it was just a stupid shirt with an alligator on it and I could buy one at Macy’s. And pink never did much for my pale skin. But your hubby looks great. Does he play polo?
