About Saint James
Based in Normandy, Saint James is one of the top French marine clothing labels. Established in 1889, they are well known for their range of quality striped shirts and sweaters, attracting followers from all over the world. Over its 130+ years in business, the Saint James brand has evolved from a workshop supplying sweaters to keep local Breton fishermen warm who were working in harsh seas to fashioning the iconic wardrobe staple known as the Mariniere or Breton shirt. Despite changes over those years, the brand remains grounded in its heritage of old-world craftsmanship.
