A military ruling in 1858 introduced the striped tee to the official wardrobe of quartermasters and sailors in the French Navy with its very specific 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 as well as fishermen and the boating community brought it onboard and it wasn’t long before it became a fashion must-have picked up by creatives and intellectuals (think Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso). Ever since then, celebrities and fashion designers have turned it into a symbol of vintage French fashion – universal and timeless.

Good nice product wish it was pima cotton
It's a classic and I love it.
My Minquiers have been my favorite t-shirts for 5 years, and my first one is still in pristine condition... This is the real thing: fantastic quality, awesome fit, and the cotton is so light and soft! Being French, I started my collection in Paris, but I now leave in New York and I'm so happy to be able to find the new seasonal colors at the Bleecker St store! Vive la France !
Saint James mariniere is a timeless classic. The quality of the cotton is great and will last throughout the years. I own the neige/gitane and ecru/marine and I like to combine both shirts with a pair of jeans, blazer and sneakers for a laid back style or a skirt and heels for a day at work/night on the town style.
