Breton Stripes

Striped shirts.  They seem French, right?  And kind of super-chic?  My brother disagrees with me on this one, but I think that somehow those Breton stripes make a plain long-sleeved T-shirt seem a little more on-purpose, a little more put-together, no?
Those stripes come from Brittany, where fisherman used to wear them (and then yachtsmen borrowed the idea).  When we passed through the little town of Dinan, we picked up shirts for my darling sister and me, and I love it!
What do you think?  Do you think that the stripes are chic and French, or, like my brother, do you think they look like prison stripes?  Let me know in the comments!
(Also, Audrey Tautou wears them.  Photo from here)


  1. apparently I think they are chic since I basically live in stripes. not prison stripes!!
