Introducing our BRETON JERSEY. A Navy icon. Two years in the making. Soft, yet structured, 100% organic, and created to last. There's real substance and authenticity to our BRETON JERSEY - that sweet spot between a jumper and a t-shirt, weighty but not too much. Taking the traditional Breton shape - slightly tapered arms and just off-the-shoulder seams - we've tweaked the fit to ensure it retains a nostalgic silhouette yet is distinctively modern and easy with a feminine edge. A relaxed fit with a small side split at the hem and a wide crisp flattering neckline.

We recommend airing as the best way to look after your knit. That's why we started a club. A Wash Less, Air More Club. We'd love you to join us.

To help manage any pilling, add a complimentary wool comb at checkout.

The stripes, the substance, the silhouette

After two years, we have finally perfected our BRETON JERSEY. 

Crafted with a classic straight fit, not too fitted nor relaxed for everyday ease. With a subtle dropped shoulder, that keeps it's structure and a length that falls to the hips. Tuck in or wear gently draped, chic and flattering for everyday.

While it was demanded that a 'true' French navy uniform Breton have 21 stripes in 1858 to mark each of Napoleon's victories, we've adjusted that to 20. To ensure the spacing between the stripes delivers a flattering, effortlessly-finished look.

The thickness of the organic cotton creates a gentle structure that adds a luxury, cool feel. An iconic top, quintessentially French, yet something so inherently British too. 

We celebrate the launch of this iconic new piece, with a bespoke label featuring the specially commissioned artwork 'Salt' by the British artist Sally Newton.
