The Breton Scarf – £18.95

The Breton scarf makes for a well-timed gift perfect for the upcoming cold weather, if we do say so ourselves. It’s extremely soft - made from 20gsm interlock cotton, and stylish as well. Available in two classic colours, it features, of course, the iconic Breton stripe. You’ll almost want to buy one of each colour for double the Breton winter flair.

The ‘Refuse to Die’ Breton Tote Bag – £25

Here at the Breton Shirt Company, we’re all for new ideas, and the ‘Refuse to Die’ Breton tote bag is no exception. The idea behind this latest creation was to make good use of the ‘imperfect’ fabric wasted during our garment production.

At approximately 41 cm deep and 36 cm wide, this tote is just big enough to hold your current read, a beach towel (even though summer holidays seem a way off yet!), your car keys and a bite to eat, plus a whole lot more. It’s also available in two colours that are so classically Breton. We think this is a great gift in particular for anyone who adores sustainability.

T-Shirt Vin – £30

This Christmas, gift that special person in your life a truly high quality, never-fails-to-impress T-shirt that only gains character with every wear. Introducing the T-Shirt Vin, a chipper Breton tee made from 160gsm white cotton with bold red stripes. It’s soft, it’s classy and it’s festive. What more could you need?

The Original Breton Shirt – £40

You can’t go wrong with a classic. That’s why we’ve added the Original Breton shirt to this list.

Whether the giftee is a true Breton aficionado or not, they’re sure to enjoy the almost nostalgic, nautical look and feel of the Original Breton. Square cut with 180gsm cotton with iconic cream and navy stripes, this shirt is an absolute dream to wear and only gets more comfortable with every wash. There’s a reason why it’s named a Breton favourite time and time again.

The Breton Hoodie – £45

We’re ending this list with what we’re sure is the epitome of Breton-striped comfort. Meet the Breton hoodie, a winter-appropriate hooded jumper that will allow you to rock your Breton stripes even in the cold weather.

Featuring navy and white stripes, a drawstring hood, a kangaroo pocket and a thick hem and cuff, the ultrasoft Breton hoodie fulfils the dual function of keeping you warm and stylish at the same time.

For an extra personalised touch that your giftee is certain to love, you can add embroidered initials to the Breton hoodie, your choice of font, colour and letter placement.

Until next time...
