Best place for Breton tops

I have one, from GAP, but am looking for other ones.

I've seen the Petit Bateau does them for adults, but at stupid prices, and Boden does them as well, but I can't bring myself to buy anything from Boden.

So where else has them at the moment? I prefer the classic white background, dark blue stripes variety

Hold out for the Petit Bateau sale. I got a nice one at 50% off. Sorry can't add anything more helpful.

Zara had some.

Can you get past your Boden ishoos? I'm wearing my green & white Boden one today and it's lovely.

I have that colourway from Lands End

I'm 29. I can't wear Boden. It goes against everything I hold dear.

I first succumbed to them when I was 28, Abs, Johnnie sends me special vouchers now and everything wink

Another vote for H&M but size up as they are very snug and they look better with a looser fit, IMO.

£12, Peacocks.

this Jack Wills one is fab - I have it in the pink

Next navy stripe slub sweater. It's very flattering and VERY light but doesn't cling. It hits hip level and is priced very reasonably.

I find this site, The Nautical Company, offering a great range of Breton tops in different shapes and colours including the dark navy and white striped ones you prefer. Hope it helps smile

Zara have a few but perhaps not in the exact colour you're after:

This or this are probably closest.

the bin - stripey tops are over

Meggles76 Sun 05-Jun-11 18:17:22

H&M, Jigsaw, Gap, Kew,

Lipstickgal - have just ordered the Next one to try - thanks. Bit of a bargain for £16.
