Saint James Meridien Moderne - the most luxurious Breton shirt in the Saint James range. Soft and durable carded cotton makes it very comfortable to wear. The Meridien is a striped sailors shirt with long sleeves and a boat neck. Saint James have now updated the classic style of Meridien to the moderne - it is now form fitting along the body and the arms. This is another of the heavy-weight Breton shirts that we do with an average weight of 380g (13.5oz.).
Saint James clothing was born in 1889 in the town of its namesake, located a few miles from the sea, and close to Mont Saint-Michel in Southern Normandy. The Saint James story began when the Legallais family started to spin and dye the local wool and sell the skeins and wool balls to the shops of Brittany and Normandy, later spinning the wool into shirts for the fishermen. Leon Legallais, the then mayor or Saint-James transformed this workshop into a large industry and in 1929 the company went public.
