Product Information

A traditional heavyweight fisherman's Breton smock in red brick colour by French Saint James label. This 100% cotton drill V-neck shirt with an oxford collar is also known as "vareuse" in French with the following features:

  • an internal pocket on the chest  to prevent fishermen's small belongings from falling overboard
  • a button fastener on the inside so that you do not catch nets and ropes while on the job
  • side slits
  • a branded tag on one arm

It is above all a work garment, perfect to cover up and favoured not only by sailors but also by artists and people doing outdoor activities.

Note: all our V neck smocks are the traditional Breton design made in the required thick canvas fabric. In red brick, we stock three different makes solely to give customers options in terms of pricing and branding. Colour varies also, see our image titled "Colour comparison". The smock of this product listing is labelled as No3:

- Fisherman's Smock, Red Brick (No2)

- Traditional Smock, Brick (No1)

Superb quality garment that will be likely to last a lifetime...

This is a quality garment, for sure. I ordered an XXL size in order to have plenty of space for movement. I'm not a fishing person, but I am an artist and this smock (vareuse) will keep my clothes clean while I paint. And if it gets paint all over it, into the washing machine it goes with non-detergent cleaner at low temperature, then on the line to dry in the warm sunshine and ready to wear again. Brilliant. I highly recommend this garment for fishing folk, artists, gardeners and anyone else who may pursue an interesting activity. A classic garment from the classic Saint James brand.Anonymous (May 09 2017, 10:33 am)
