Made in England
True to size
The Breton stripe shirt was first introduced in 1858 as the uniform for all French navy seamen in Northern France. The original design featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napoleon Bonaparte's victories and the distinctive stripes made it easier to spot wayward sailors who had fallen overboard. This season we are introducing our first Breton crew neck jumper made from 100% Merino wool in a hardwearing tight Milano stitch.
