Breton

Breton

"An homage to the classic Breton shirt."

Designer Jared Flood suggests layering this timeless piece under jackets to let the bold stripes peek through, or wearing it on its own as a graphic piece that isn’t overstated.

He designed it in his own fingering-weight yarn, Loft. The sample shown here uses the traditional dark-on-light stripe variation (with stripes of 'Cast Iron' on a field of off-white 'Fossil'). You can check out all 32 colors on the Brooklyn Tweed Loft page.
