How to Wear a Breton Jumper 10 Ways

The Marienere or Tricot Raye is a cotton long armed shirt worn by Quarter masters in The French Navy. To us it is known as The Breton, beloved of women & men everywhere – just think of James Dean or Brigitte Bardot. As a sartorial classic it is up there with the little black dress which was also brought into mainstream fashion by Coco Chanel, she wore The Breton with a pair of wide leg trousers, a look that we will imitate today.
