Add a dash of your own quirky personality to your Breton stripes, or add a fun touch to a tee you’re gifting to a friend. It’s the perfect way to style your Breton your way.

There are a number of our specially-designed emojis to choose from, and you can even choose exactly where they’ll be embroidered onto your brand new top or tee. Just look out for the drop-down menu on each product on our website, which gives you the opportunity to select an emoji and decide where you'd like it.

Here's what you'll see when you choose the 'emoji' option on our drop-down menu:

Then you can choose where you'd like your emoji...

On your “breastpocket” – for a classic, stylish addition to your stripes.

On your sleeve – this is also where we keep our hearts. Trés unique, trés jolie.

On your hemline – perfectly chic and discrete. A special treat hidden in plain sight.

Simply choose yours from the drop-down menu on each of your chosen tees’ pages...and away you go.

Intrigued? Mais oui, of course you are. So let’s get to know l’emojis nouveaux.


The Buoy

Is it a buoy? Is it a lifebelt? It can be whichever you want it to be, because this is your little touch of nautical fun.

Instantly recognisable to anyone who loves the seaside, this little emoji makes us think of white-capped waves, the sea air and plates of oysters.

Perfect for sailors, wild swimmers and anyone who likes messing around in boats.

The Eiffel Tower

Iconic, elegant and still a marvel of engineering creativity, Gustave Eiffel’s most famous creation is the first thing we think of when someone mentions Paris.

Of course, we know Paris is the most chic city in the world, filled with fashionable boutiques, cute cafés and impossibly beautiful people wearing Breton shirts. A mini embroidered Eiffel Tower brings to mind all the style of France’s gorgeous capital, and lifts your tee from fave to high-fashion.


The Whale

As mysterious strangers and wonderful singers of the sea, whales always capture our imaginations. Spotting whales off the Côte D'Azur is one of the most exciting moments you can enjoy in France, and this embroidered emoji hopes to capture that memory; choose any product on our site, select the emoji option and view the whale in all its glory.

Ideal for lovers of the sea, whimsical animal-lovers and anyone who’s stared out from the French coastline wondering what’s out there, swimming in the depths.

The Anchor

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” - Jacques Cousteau, French explorer and marine scientist.

Cast off from the harbour and set sail for the open sea in a Breton tee emblazoned with a brave little anchor. But will your anchor be for holding you steady as you fish for mackerel, or a reminder that the sea isn’t far away, even as you sit at your desk at work?

The Gulls

The sound of seagulls wheeling in the sky always transports us to the seaside, no matter where we are. They may enjoy stealing our chips but we love their bold swagger and devil-may-care attitude. A bracing walk on the beach wouldn’t be the same without the screech of gulls flying overhead.

The perfect Breton Shirt Co. emoji for dreamers and seaside strollers.
