Best Breton shirt! The original!
For striped tees, I only wear Saint James. They make the best, and this shirt in ecru/navy is classic. The fit is perfect. This is actually a repeat color as I love this combo so much.
Perfect updated classic!
I love everything about this top! I love that the neckline is not a boatneck. Sleeves are nice and long and fabric weight is perfect!! I did go up a size from the size chart.
Beautiful fabric, quality craftsmanship
I purchased both the Minquidame and Meridame in a Size 6. The shirts are beautiful - very high quality. I prefer a tailored, not oversized, fit for my clothing, so I order a size 6 in most brands, but this company I would say is more true to size. It was just a tiny bit too fitted for my taste, so I reordered the shirts in a size 8, and added a short-sleeved shirt and a sweater to my order. I will now have a quality striped Breton for every season! For reference: 5’5”, 125, 55yo.
