The Breton Stripe

I’ve always been partial to a stripe.  Going by the family albums, my tiny person wardrobe, ages 2-4, consisted mainly of OshKosh cord dungarees and stripey 3/4 length tees, so perhaps something just always seemed familiar about stripey clothing. I own more stripey, long-sleeve tops than a person really should. I just can’t get enough. But nothing beats the classic Breton stripe, the old reliable navy & white combo, simultaneously fun, classic and classy.

Trivia: The original striped breton shirt was the uniform for all French navy seaman in Brittany and featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napoleon’s victories… #whoknew
