The Breton Shirt franchise opportunity

The history of the Breton Shirt is synonymous with seafarers and sailors across the north of France. The original design featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napolean’s victories but variations of the style were adopted by coastal communities across the globe.

Whether its Parisian chic or Hollywood glamour, nautical stripes play a key theme with celebrities and cinematography alike. We have featured in publications as varied as Vogue, The Times, Private Eye, New Musical Express, Country Life to even Viz.

Our customer base has always pressed us for a physical retail presence and with the evolution of the high street away from faceless chains towards a more independent and boutique environment, we now know that this is the right time to take our range to a bigger audience.
