Saint James Heavyweight Breton Shirt, Cream/Red£55.00
(Product Code: SJ-MERIDIEN-ECRU-ROUGE-PERSAN)
Saint-James "meridien" heavyweight cotton Breton shirt in cream and persan red stripes. This long sleeved top is made in 100% jersey carded cotton with a round neck and a branded label on one arm. Typically worn loose fitted. This is the thicker version of the "minquiers II".
January 2016 update: Saint James has stopped producing the MERIDIEN II to replace it with the MERIDIEN MODERNE. It is still the same cotton, same colour, just a sizing adjustment. We have a very small stock left of Meridien II which is listed under "OLD". If you bought a meridien in the past, it is imperative that you measure your garment to compare with our measurements given in the SIZING tab above.
Note for the ladies: this top is designed for men and we would not recommend it for ladies unless you are pretty tall and happy to roll up sleeves. We advise to look at those cut for women only. A good alternative for ladies is this lovely one by Armor Lux, a women's white/red Breton top in thick jersey or in a summer lightweight cotton .See also our full range of women's striped Breton tops.
Our chest to fit recommendations are for a relaxed loose fit. If you prefer a fitted style, opt for the garment's size instead.
DESIGNER LABEL: Saint James
machine washable at 30 degree C
wash separately and inside out

If you prefer to take a measurement across your chest at the fullest part, make sure you allow room to breathe (typically 2 inches, 5cm) unless you prefer a tight fit.
