Product Details

Since 1889, Saint James has spun some of the world's finest knits out of its Normandy-based factory, but the brand is most famous for its authentic Breton tee. Originally part of the official French naval uniform, this striped tee has been worn by style greats ranging from Andy Warhol to Picasso to Karl Lagerfeld. And now you.

Size & Fit Details
  • Women's sizing: Buy one size down for a more fitted look; your regular size for a looser, slouchy fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bought Two, Love One I love this style, so I had to have the blue and white stripes, both combos! I wanted the x-small (I'm 5'3", 112 lbs). The navy was out of stock in x-small so I chose the xx-small (never a problem, I'm usually glad to find it but figured these might shrink a bit...). When they arrived, I was thrilled with them. The x-small was as expected, a little oversized but wonderful. The xx-small should have been PERFECT. Except that it was a child sized 16. I laid them on top of each other (because I don't care if it's technically a kid's size, hey, I'm small!) They are so different! The kid's is a total boxy cut, dropped shoulders, wider and shorter sleeves, shorter but wider body...totally different. I'm not sure it's flattering on any woman, but it's not flattering on me. J Crew was awesome about the return (I didn't have the tags on because I was so IN know how that goes). I'm waiting for the x-small to be back in stock, because I want to order it again. Hope this helps somebody! September 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous classic! I have multiples colors of this shirt, some more than 6 years old that still look like new, and have just ordered more. It is a true classic. I usually wear a size S in women's, and the XS is roomy but not too slouchy. Looks great worn with some skinny jeans and ballet flats. I recommend washing on a delicate cycle and line drying to avoid shrinkage. June 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great piece, be wary of sizing I ordered an xx-small and received a children's size 16 - the fit is different than the adult, especially regarding sleeve length (I have no choice but to wear them rolled as they are too short). This was a surprise when I received the package and felt this should have been noted when I made the order. August 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by classic I don't think it's necessary to comment on the quality nor the style. It's a classic, just get it. I have this in 6 color options from J.Crew however, navy is the most versatile one. A word of caution, if you plan on tumble drying this I'd recommend going a size up. The small fits like your J.Crew men button down small but will fit like slim fit once tumble dried. The sleeves also shrunk a bit. The medium fits perfectly after wash and tumble dry and fit like your typical J.Crew small. May 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The perfect shirt for all seasons You really can't go wrong with this shirt. It is a classic, makes a great gift, fits perfectly, and allows you to participate in some pretty awesome heritage. Between the two of us, my husband and I have three of these. I can't recommend them highly enough. The sizing suggestions are absolutely right--for men, the shirt fits true to size, and for ladies, going down one size is recommended. For those days when I want to look good and not think about it, I reach for my Breton shirt. April 25, 2014
