Vintage Lacoste Stone Cotton Flat Front Chino Shorts Classic Fit 36 W
Since 1933, the story of Lacoste has mirrored that of its founder, René Lacoste, the French Tennis legend who revolutionised the everyday wardrobe. During a trip to Boston with the 1923 Davis Cup team, René notices a crocodile suitcase. His coach jokes to him before the match ''If you win, I'll buy it for you''. This anecdote is behind his nickname 'The Alligator', and quickly became the brand emblem.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear throughout and some light marks to the front right (as worn) thigh area. Freshly laundered and ready for their new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
SIZE: We recommend for a 36W. No size label and the actual full waist measurement is 38in, so these should be a good fit for size 36W, which allows room for a comfortable fit as shorts are now typically worn lower on the waist - but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).
FABRIC: 100% Cotton
- YKK metal zip fly front
- Branded Lacoste buttons
- 2 front side pockets
- 2 rear button entry pockets
- Branded internal waistband
- Rear branded label
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up (if applicable) on a flat surface:
A - WAIST - straight across the waistband (double for full waist): 19in (48cm)
B - THIGH WIDTH - point where the legs meet at the crotch straight across: 15in (38cm)

Please do not solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand.
