The history of the Breton Shirt is synonymous with seafarers and sailors across the north of France with the distinctive stripes making the wearer easier to spot in the sea.  The original design featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napoleon’s victories but variations of the style have been adopted by coastal communities across the globe. Whether its Parisian chic or Hollywood glamour, nautical stripes play a key theme with celebrities and cinematography alike.
