Made In France
Saint James is the Normandy-based purveyor of the original Breton Striped Shirt. This item is produced in its employee-owned atelier in France, where only the finest ingredients are sourced for pieces that last decades and using panels of fabric for minimal waste.

As in the past, I always purchase one size larger and wash and dry and then have the perfect size. This signals spring.
The quintessential Breton shirt
I’m a petite and the XS is a great fit. Lovely feel as well.
Love this shirt!
This is the second St. James Breton Striped shirt that I have bought. Loved the first one and could not live without it after an unfortunate laundry incident. The second is just as great! Fits well, goes anywhere.
