the classic stripe

The shirt was originally worn by French fisherman in the late 19th C, hence its quintessentially French heritage and association. The shirt has graced the likes of Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso, Brigitte Bardot, and has remained an iconic style staple. One of the legendary wardrobe "must-haves", it can too easily become designed, just a little off (in my humble opinion).
Look for a slightly oversized/boxy feel, boat-neck, horizontal stripes in navy or worn blue. Pair as you wish...but nothing is more regal than your classic chinos, boat shoes or espadrilles, with sunglasses and a worn ball cap. Grab your L.L.Bean tote and one of the sail boats at Newport will be waiting for you.
