(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

The iconic navy and white stripes of our Women's French Sailor Boatneck shirt is based on a pattern originally intended for deep sea fishermen in Breton, but that has since been adopted by seafarers and yachtsmen across the ages. The sweaters were originally worn by “marchand d’ail,” sellers of garlic and onions who sailed from Brittany to England with their wares. Eventually the French Navy adopted the tight-knit wool design, but only sailors and new recruits wore stripes—officers alone were permitted to wear solid colors.
