Perfect stripy/Breton top
26

nuitdesetoiles · 15/01/2021 16:08

I love stripes, like the French look generally but struggle with the perfect stripy top. Can be any colour and white not just navy, reasonably fitted, long enough so it doesn't ride up, either slash neck, v neck, or slightly off the shoulders (not t shirt neck as doesn't suit me) and good quality not too thick material. A lot I've tried are a bit frumpy or poor quality and bag easily. I'm size 8 but with d cup boobs and quite broad shoulders and a long neck. Not sea salt or Boden please...

Thick fabric and boxy square cut is what an authentic French naval uniform mariniere Breton shirt is though. There were (are?) even rules about how many stripes and their relative width. The Joules version is quite good in this respect.


For more fashion led Bretons - have you looked at Kettlewell Colours, Rapanui, Scotch and Soda, Fat Face? The Fat Face ones are quite fluid.
