It starts in 1882 with the opening of a little hosiery store in Romilly-sur-Seine, in a part of the Champagne region called the Aube.
Le coq sportif finds its origins in Romilly-sur-Seine, in a French region synonymous with the finest in hosiery craftsmanship. One of these craftsmen, Emile Camuset, combined his dual passion for hosiery and sport to create the tricolour brand. Applying his drive and expertise, he became the leader in sports apparel and the premier choice for all sportsmen. Le coq sportif’s sincerity and passion to the craftsman’s exacting values brought the brand to the pinnacle of world sporting excellence.
Emile Camuset, the man who opened that store, loved sports with a fierce passion. When he started making sports jersey in his small workshop, he probably never dreamed that, 130 years later, le coq sportif would become one of the world’s most prestigious brands, renowned for its clothing, footwear and sporting equipment.
