It’s nice to be liked, isn’t it? Really, who doesn’t love a compliment every now and then – especially when it’s online? After all, you can take a screenshot on your phone and hang onto it forever – and there’s really nothing nicer to perk yourself up after a bad day.

Like everyone else, we feel all warm and fuzzy inside when someone says something nice about us or our brand – and just in case you weren’t aware, we wanted to let you know about some places who’ve shared the love for our Harrogate-based business on this here Internet. So, here goes…

The White T-Shirt Stories

We’re all about sharing the love ourselves, which is why we wanted to point you in the direction of The White T-Shirt Co. The website is the home for all things plain, white tee – and we reckon you’ll love having a poke around its archives.

Oh, and we wanted to alert you to a lovely piece The White T-Shirt Co kindly put together about The Original Breton Shirt Co last year.

The Evening Standard’s 8 Best Breton Stripe Tops for Women

It was a real thrill to be featured on The Evening Standard’s website, also published last year. In a piece titled ‘8 Best Breton Stripe Tops for Women’, the online home of the newspaper waxed lyrical about our ‘Original’ shirt. For those not in the know, it’s our classic Breton tee and it’s perfect for recreating an understated, French-inspired look.

GQ Magazine’s Best Breton Shirts

We really were beaming from ear to ear when we spotted that we’d been featured in GQ magazine’s gallery of Best Breton Shirts. Head to the article to read about some of the most stylish men in history – and their penchant for the classic, striped t-shirt.

The piece states: “Thanks to designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, this item has now become a mainstay of chic French menswear - but that doesn't mean it can't benefit from a little tweak here and there. Below, we've pulled together our edit of the designers who are bringing something new to the classic blue striped shirt this season.”
