Godtfred L/S shirt from Norse Projects cut in a relaxed fit made from compact jersey. Features all-over Breton stripes and a dry hand feel.
The Breton striped shirt has been a working mariner garment that was picked up by seafarers, fishermen and the French navy. Originating from Brittany, France, the Breton Stripes were introduced on March 27th, 1858, and was the prescribed seaman’s uniform. The stripes are white for the largest, 2 cm, and blue for the shortest, 1cm. Traditionally, there are 21 stripes on a Breton shirt, one for each of Napoleon’s victories. The classic design has withstood the test of time making it a true wardrobe staple in its many iterations.
