Lacoste LT12 ///

Lacoste LT12 tennis racquet | GregoryWest

I’ve gradually realized that I’m drawn to gear that’s just as decorative as it is functional, and I’d love to clear some wall space for the Lacoste LT12. This new tennis racquet combines aeronautics-grade graphite (for increased control and ball speed) and three types of wood (for dampening vibration). It’s available in a limited edition of just 650, as each one was entirely hand-made by French artisan, Alain Zanco. The LT12 is a beautiful way to continue the legacy of René Lacoste, who believed that true victory was to remain elegant whatever the effort … but I don’t think I could bring myself to subject it to my less-than-elegant baseline game.
