9 Of The Best Breton Tees


A breton tee hits the sweet spot between stylish and louche. It makes more of a splash than white or grey alternatives, but is similarly comfortable and versatile. Fit is key: oversized can look childish; too fitted and it verges on feminine. Here are the styles catching our eye – and three ways to achieve them.

Look 1

Switch up a suit by swapping your usual shirt and tie for a breton tee. Too trendy? Wear it under a blazer and team with chinos.

Look 2

Opt for plain, light-coloured trousers and let your top half do the talking. A denim overshirt will keep the look contemporary.

Look 3

Nod to the 50s and team your striped tee with a James Dean-style bomber jacket for a cool and casual look. When the weather gets warmer, ditch the jacket and throw over an unbuttoned shirt.
