In 1858, the French Navy in Brittany received a new uniform which included the Breton Shirt. A navy and white long sleeved shirt with 21 stripes, each stripe representing a naval victory over the British. Since its origins the Breton Shirt has become a classic, from Chanel to Picasso this shirt continues to appear in popular culture.
