Introduced by an Act of France in 1858, the Breton stripe has been a classic uniform of such luminaries as James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, and Brigitte Bardot. Striped Breton-style mariner shirts made sailors easier to spot should they fall into the water. With one of these on, you’ll be easy to spot—but for all the right reasons. Here, we’re offering both Men’s and Women’s styles. Both are knitted in France and feature a round neck with an all-over striped pattern.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of four styles. Men’s styles are the base price and women’s styles are (+ $5).

Today, Armor Lux is one of the largest apparel manufacturers in France, and has even been trusted to manufacture the uniforms for GeoPost, the international parcel delivery company, and SNCF, France’s national state-owned railway.
