LeTigre Rips Back Off LaCoste


American-based LeTigre, makers of those preppy Tiger-emblazoned shirts is having fun with a street poster campaign which shows a tiger ripping into the back on an alligator (crocodile for detail freaks), icon of French-based LaCoste, another pretty shirt brand. It seems both these brands are making a comeback but neither will ever achieve the popularity both had back in the 80's which you can now marvel at by watching FOX's Reunion - at leasts for a few episodes as each episode moves ahead one year.

Steve, you ignorant slut: That's a crocodile, not an alligator. With the exception of a subspecies found in China, alligators are not indigenous to Asia.

Ultimately, their shirts are known as "polo" shirts. Rock on with your brand, Ralph Lauren!

Oh, the humanity of trying to make a JC Penney house brand hip. I still cringe when I see Le Tigre shirts, no matter how hip they are supposed to be right now.
