Light and versatile, the Breton striped shirt or marinière MINQUIERS MODERNE embodies a French state of mind.

Its masculine straight fit around the waist and down the hips with full-length sleeves make it suitable for both men and women looking for a boyfriend fit. Please refer to the sizing guide to identify your best fit.

Fashion tip: when wearing their beloved MINQUIERS MODERNE, many women like to roll up their sleeves as they are longer than average. Perfect to bring in some French girl effortless style!

Like all Saint James fabrics, our hospitality industry-endorsed light cotton is engineered to stand the test of time and countless cold washes.

For a more substantial, textured, authentic weight and similar outstanding quality, choose MERIDAME (women fit) or MERIDIEN MODERNE (men fit).
Measurements for size Medium : total length is 27.25' / 69cm, half bust girth: 19' / 48cm, sleeve length: 26' / 66cm.

Straight shape.

Made in Saint-James, Normandy, France.

A military ruling in 1858 introduced the striped tee to the official wardrobe of quartermasters and sailors in the French Navy with its particular characteristics: 21 white stripes measuring 20mm and 20 or 21 blue stripes measuring 10mm. The 20th century brought this nautical motif into the mainstream. Sailors in the Merchant Navy and fishermen and the boating community brought it on board, and it wasn’t long before it became a fashion must-have picked up by creatives and intellectuals (think Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso). Since then, celebrities and fashion designers have turned it into a symbol of vintage French fashion – universal and timeless.

Material

100% lightweight cotton jersey.

My wife keeps buying St. James. The clothes she got twenty years ago look as good and in style today as they did when bought. Can’t be beat for classic, tasteful quality.

Color slightly off from American preppy

The ‘green’ is more of a real. In the ‘70’s and ‘80’s, the Prep School trend had more of a dark green in the classic navy/green combo. Other than that, the fabric and the cut is very agreeable. Thanks for asking..

Consistently Excellent Quality

I LOVE these shirts! This is my 5th one and I never tire of wearing them. Super comfortable; you can dress up or down. Long lasting, too.
