The stripes are undoubtedly the pattern for every summer and – unlike flowers – it is an ever-present trend that all men should wear with ease. But with the same ease you can get tired of the clothes and the ways they can be worn.


Here I show you a new and simple way to introduce stripes in your summer wardrobe.

The Chemise Breton, the most famous striped garment

I couldn’t talk about stripes without mentioning the most famous stripred garment: the Chemise Breton. Originally created as a uniform for the French navy, this shirt is firmly cemented in the world of men’s clothing, proving to be a simple and sophisticated choice for days out of the office.

But I will not tell you to follow the obvious trend of Chemise Breton with blue horizontal stripes. After a couple of times you will already be bored. A current way of conceiving Chemise Breton, on the other hand, is a vertical striped shirt with an important thickness, in a softer color like gray. Not only that: you can opt for a much more lightweight shirt, in light cotton or linen, with a V-neck and without buttons. A sort of tidy but light jacket like the one by Banggood you see in this post.

A modern alternative for wearing the Breton Chemise

Abandon the typical pairing with chino shorts. For this summer why not dare a more “underground” alternative with skinny destroyed black jeans and a pair of leather creepers? It’s a strong but sophisticated combination that would not look out of place during the sunniest season.

Of course, we can’t trust of summer, so if the weather seems to change suddenly, you can use a light denim jacket with patches and applications to make the whole look ready for the weather. A black tonal look with the touch of the stripes will make your casual outfit definitely much more contemporary.
