breton inspiration via the totally addictive la marinere
my breton striped shirts have made living out of my very limited abroad-wardrobe a breeze. i did a short post on this last year, but now that i've thoroughly road-tested my Saint James shirts that i purchased shortly before leaving for SH, an updated post is in order.
bretons that i've been living in all year: HOPE, Vince, Saint James
however, my 2 Saint James shirts have kept their shape perfectly well, and there has been no pilling, color-loss, or loose threads. very gratifying to see that this historic company is still making a really quality shirt!
a stripe a day...my favorite Saint James breton shirts
i love the pink and navy/pink stripe ones especially - the green is also such a cheery color for spring. and of course, the navy/cream is the original, timeless classic.
some of my favorite ways to wear them
the j.crew limited edition Saint James bretons currently available are a slightly slimmer archive version of the Minquiers, and i like how the sleeves are more feminine fit. i'm definitely getting one (or two) - now just a matter of deciding on colors...
how do you wear yours? and for the breton junkies out there - how many do you have? :)
