The Original Breton Shirt


When it comes to Breton shirts this is the original and most recognisable style of traditional French fishermans shirt. For some reason nautical shirts have an enduring appeal. We feel at home with them. Memories of a childhood holiday or of dashing over the channel by hovercraft or boat? We love the simplicity and square cut relaxed fit. They are like an old friend and always a welcome addition to in our drawers which appear full of French sailor shirts et all. Square cut with classic cream and navy stripes. The more you wash it the better it feels. So comfortable they’re addictive!
