Polos shirt were used by polo players originally in India in late 1850s and in Great Britain during the 1920s.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, tennis players ordinarily wore “tennis whites” consisting of long-sleeved white button-up shirts. This attire presented problems for ease of play and comfort.

Rene Lacoste the French seven-time Grand Slam tennis champion, felt that the stiff tennis attire was too cumbersome and uncomfortable. He designed a white, short-sleeved, loosely-knit pique cotton shirt with an unstarched, flat, protruding collar; a buttoned placket; and a shirt-tail longer in back than in front, which he first wore at the 1926 U.S. Open championship.
