The striped breton shirt was first instituted by the French navy as the standard uniform for its seamen in Brittany, and the original design featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napoleon’s victories. The striking navy-and-white stripes made it easy to spot in the waves, and so the design became the working garment of choice of men of the sea. The iconic striped top takes many forms today; we come across its various iterations in the working world, and they still don’t fail to catch our eye in the sea of people in the CBD—an unintentional parallel to the shirt’s origin. There’s something that’s just classically stylish about a striped shirt, no matter the colour or the cut, and these Shentonistas put that easy elegance to good use in their outfits.
