Like James Dean, For Sure

The Breton stripe, a wardrobe staple for every nautical nomad, was originally issued to French sailors in the late 19th century. The 21 stripes represented Napoleon's 21 campaign victories. The look became a favorite of sailors and fishermen around the globe. 

The Breton Stripe was popularized by American Actor James Dean who famously said "If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man". Dean did live on. He lived on in the hearts of those who sought to emulate his effortlessly cool style, his charm, and his aura of timeless youth. He left a legacy that was classic, timeless, and cool, and for that he will be remembered.
