A modern classic - new Breton Stripe colours

The perfect Breton stripe tee is an elusive creature. Cut, colour, sleeve length and neckline all need to come together in stripy perfection to elevate a Breton to a true wardrobe staple.

And after almost 15 years of honing ours, we think we've pretty much nailed it. The fit, slightly boxy with neat side splits but not too big and baggy, means it suits a huge range of body shapes. The slight boat neck is flattering and easy to wear and 3/4 sleeves make all sorts of transitional layering a breeze.

And the best bit? It's available in six colours with four brand new delicious colour combinations, with at least one new option for each of the four seasonal palettes. I've styled all six below in case you need any more convincing that there is a Breton shaped hole in your wardrobe.
