Saint-James, a small town settled between Brittany and Normandy, France, is known as the historical hallmark for the production of nautical inspired garments since 1850. Going on to become a world-renowned brand that has been operating for over 125 years, Saint James supplies style conscious consumers as well as the French Army and Navy with high quality apparel that reflects the town’s seafaring significance. The Saint James Méridien Moderne, an updated version of the original Mérdien II, is exclusively offered through Massdrop before it becomes available in stores.
Note: These bretons are made-to-order in France and will ship approximately 10-12 weeks after the drop ends.
Featuring a new, more modern fit, the Méridien Moderne comes in an authentic, nautical, striped Breton design. Made from 100% carded cotton heavyweight jersey, the shirt is long sleeved with a high crew neck. Since Saint James is involved in every step of the manufacturing process; from carefully selecting yarn, to maintaining the looms located in the Saint-James factory, to the knitting and assembling of the final product, the Méridien Moderne is a wearable display of quality craftsmanship.
The Meridien Moderne differs from the classic Meridien II in several ways:
A size M Meridien Moderne is 70 cm long, and 47 cm wide at the chest. Sizes are by increments of 2 cm. Shrinkage of around 1 cm is normal after washing.
Model is 5'11", weighs 155 lbs, and is shown wearing a medium.
All orders will be shipped by Drop.
Estimated ship date is Oct 15, 2015 PT.
