Product description

“This pullover is an homage to the classic Breton Shirt – an iconic mainstay of 20th century nautical fashion. I knit mine with two colors that feature high value contrast to emphasize the graphic nature of the striping pattern, though your own experimentation with color is, as always, encouraged! Knit in Loft, Breton is great for layering under jackets to add that extra “something” to an outfit as the bold stripes peek through, or on its own as a graphic piece that isn’t overstated. With a slim sleeve and just enough body shaping to flatter, this is a classic look that never goes out of style.” – Jared Flood
