An old-school classic updated for the modern man.

Think of the classic Breton stripe tee, and there’s a good chance something very similar to the Armor-Lux Breton Stripe Tee comes to mind. In fact, there’s a good chance you’ve got an image of the one and only  Armor-Lux Breton Stripe Tee emblazoned in your mind. Authentic Breton stripe tees, as it were, have been made in Quimper, France by the Armor-Lux brand for decades. Worn by everyone from Mick Jagger to Pablo Picasso, and quite famously at that, the Armor-Lux Breton Stripe Tee has the potential to become your new favorite summer T-shirt in the here and now. The history and heritage of the classic Breton stripe tee is long, varied & actually … pretty cool.  The original Breton shirt, pre-Armor-Lux times, served as the official uniform of the French Navy, yet another menswear essential to draw from military roots. And today’s Armor-Lux Breton Stripe Tee has all the goods to make it a shirt you’ll never want to take off (sans a trip to the pool, of course).

The Best Basics. Summer Ready.When it comes to the Armor-Lux Breton Stripe Tee, you’re getting everything you need in a summer T-shirt, from a breezy and lightweight linen blend to engaging stripes that should look right at home worn on their own or paired with a rugged denim jacket. The “mariner fit” on the Armor-Lux Breton Stripe Tee is also intriguing — it’s slightly boxier, making it visually interesting to wear on its own with slim lightweight chinos. And since the classic Breton stripe tee is as iconic as an Oxford shirt or a chambray shirt, it’s likely going to bring in some compliments — it’s cool-as-can-be, as ready to wear with a classic cotton blazer at a happy hour or beneath a zip hoodie at a beach bonfire. There’s really no wrong way to wear a Breton stripe tee, especially the Armor-Lux Breton Stripe Tee — are we clear on that? Very good. Enjoy summer, folks!
