Where the runway meets the street

Hard to argue the classic appeal of the Breton shirt. High fashion incarnations are relatively frequent, especially with eyes toward maritime tradition these days. Flamborough Marine, out of the UK, sells genuine Breton shirts manufactured by Armor Lux. The shirts come in long and short sleeve of 100% Egyptian spun cotton.

A great range of colors are available. For spring/summer 2010 a limited run of blue and green stripes complements more traditional navy and red looks. In any case, the Breton shirt remains a simple, timeless garment.
