A CLASSIC DESIGN FIRST INTRODUCED IN 1858

Reimagined by &SONS, the 21 Breton pays homage to the naval nuances with a few trademark additions. 

Made from 100% Organic cotton, the 170g jersey is finished with soft touch elbow patches in navy blue and a unique collar weld offering a layered look and cleaner neckline. The iconic 21 stripes run horizontally with a more intense band around the chest to create a flattering silhouette. 

"A cool take on the classic Breton! I can see myself in this all year round."

INTRODUCING

From Picasso to Dean, every style icon in history has sported a Breton top. Originally produced as an undershirt for sailors in the French navy, the first Breton (or marinière) featured 21 stripes, each a tribute to one of Napoleon’s victories. 

Today, it's a wardrobe staple that can provide an instant hit of summer to any outfit and still keep you warm during the cooler evenings.

ORIGINS

The Breton stripe is a timeless design first introduced in 1858 as the uniform for the French Navy. The unique pattern was made up of 21 stripes each representing one of Napoleon Bonaparte’s victories. Designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and Coco Chanel have suede Breton stripes in their collections and style icon James Dean made it famous in Rebel Without a Cause in 1955.
