What about Joules? They have a lot of breton type tops - especially their "harbour" top.

Thank you my Lovlies. Roundwindow, I've never heard of Seasaltconwall -I'm going to order one in Orca and one Poppy not too sure about the Ecru combination but I like the look of the fit so I'll give them a whirl. I know they don't look v exciting but I find that if I throw on a quirky Marnie necklace on - I'm good to go.

Yes they are! I'm a shortarse (5' 2) and have to turn up the cuffs

They look nice and long in the sleeve round - which would be great if they are.....?

these are the best I've found... may be a bit more traditional than you're looking for (ie, not slimline long body) lovely though, the most traditional I've found outside of actual Brittany!

Blimey porridge - not good. Don't get that one then Rosie!
I'm after a red and cream one so my hunt continues.....

I have that one shopafrolic.
It wore holes in the front after about 3 wears, so disappointed.
Have darned it several times, but getting irritated now.

Don't cringe....got a decent one in m&s recently. Quite long...more like a tunic.

We're having a similar Breton hunt on the Vogue thread! Is this one any good?

I used to own the perfect Breton Style top then the dreaded moths found it..Ugh..sad

It was by BZR
Slim line, long body
soft cotton
Boat neck
Extra long sleeves
Thin black & white stripes

It was just perfect but Brunns Bazaar are not doing anything similar this year.
Can anyone offer any recommendations?
