No fashion faux pas has ever been made with a classic Breton purchase, especially when it looks like this Comme Des Garcon striped long sleeve t-shirt. The crisp navy and white pattern is seasonally fresh and carries a maritime charm, hence its popularity within the Nautical trend each spring/summer. The vast colour ways of striped t-shirts can cause a dilemma for some men, as they run the risk of looking like a candy cane or ‘Where’s Wally’ (which is only appropriate for fancy dress at university). This is why the classic navy/white option is foolproof, timeless and a wardrobe staple.
The Comme Des Garcon long sleeved tee has been given a modern makeover with the introduction of quirky elbow inserts. It is made from 100% cotton, which ensures it is lightweight, breathable and comfortable to wear in this hot weather we’ve been lucky enough to have recently. The quality of the fabric and classic design guarantees satisfaction from this iconic piece of fashion.
To give the quintessentially French Breton tee a British twist, pair them with rolled chinos and lightweight windbreakers. Alternatively, for a smarter approach, combine it with a blazer and tailored shorts.
Nautical inspired trends are no stranger to our summer wardrobes, but its determined durability means that we can recycle our stripy fetish year after year. A perk for those skinny men out there is that horizontal stripes will give the illusion of a wider silhouette and therefore a more powerful frame.
Don’t be a seafaring stranger this summer boys, stripes are universally guy friendly!
