French Mariner Scarf

French Mariner Hat

The iconic navy and white stripes of our French Mariner Hat and Scarf 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. It is based on the sweater 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.

Made in France, near Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, by Saint James, the oldest manufacturer of nautical wear and supplier of the French Navy since 1889.

Made in France. 100% wool.
Scarf: 61" x 7 1/2"
Hat: Approx 20 3/4" circumference.

Hand wash recommended.
