On March 27, 1958, France passed the Bretton Stripe Shirt Act, which made blue and white striped knitted shirts part of the French sailor's uniform. It is believed that striped t-shirts help to find sailors who fall off the boat. The classic Bretton blue and white stripes symbolize the sailor, and the collar is also a prominent symbol of the French sailor's shirt. The collar's wonderful use is that it can quickly take off clothes after falling into the water and won't jam the neck. Later, the Striped T-Shirt became the standard for the French Navy and fishing fleet, and other navies worldwide. It became fashionable a century later.

My husband absolutely loves these shirts. We live in south Florida & they are excellent for tropical weather regardless of blazingly hot or cooler in winter. He has both long & short sleeve versions, although mostly short sleeve & now has 7 of them - ordered some last year & then grabbed more on sale. They are well made, wear wonderfully, wash easily & are quite simply his favorite shirts ever. Highly recommended!
