SAINT JAMES Online Shop

Since 1889 Saint James has been drawing inspiration from the sea facing, windswept land of sailors sandwiched between Normandy and Brittany. Not far away from the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel.

This french region is well known for a centuries old textile and knitting tradition and Saint James began knitting the famous sailor sweater in the 19th century. A woolen sweater that tightly knitted that it was considered to be wind- and waterproof and perfect for the people facing the freezing cold seas of the North Atlantic.

Soon the world famous nautical striped tees and long sleeves followed, must-have basics that have boosted the reputation of Saint James to worldwide well known and respected brand. Timeless pieces advanced to owners favorites, timeless and authentic easy-wear.

A military ruling in 1858 introduced the striped tee to the official wardrobe of quartermasters and sailors in the French Navy with its very specific characteristics: 21 white stripes measuring 20mm and 20 or 21 blue stripes measuring 10mms.

The 20th century brought the nautical motif into daily life. Especially creatives and intellectuals made the striped shirts a fashion must-have.

Saint James’ production process today is an optimized, fully authentic legacy from a more than a century old craftsmanship.

Saint James symbolizes a very unique, iconic and historical piece of clothing, proud to still produce every single piece in France!
