Product Information

This is the traditional sailing fisherman's Breton sweater from renowned Breton marine label Royal Mer in plain dark navy blue colour suitable for men & women. A classic Breton style with its navy blue shoulder buttoning, made in 100% high quality new wool with a straight cut & raised neckline. Signature branding label on one arm with ribbed cuff but no hem on end of body length unlike the standard jumper version.

A high quality and well finished pull over that will test the length of time. We feature this garment in various plain and striped colours, scroll down the page for more pictures.

This sweater molds to your body shape and it is designed to give elasticity once worn. As such some customers prefer to go for a size above their normal jumper size. It is all a matter of preference on how defined you would like the body contouring to be. It is the same as the Matelot. If you are not after a body hugging type, please check the standard jumper shaped one.

It is not usual to wear the collar with one button undone should you prefer to do so.

If you prefer a mix wool content rather than pure wool, see our alternative Breton sweater.

If you prefer a more relaxed regualr fit, check our men's Breton jumper

OTHER COLOURS:  navy with cream stripes

100% pure new wool, hand wash only, medium stitch knit. Our 6'2" (1.88m) and 42" chest model here wears a size 6 because of his height.Ranging from size 1 to 9, it is imperative that youcheck our sizing below before ordering.

I am pleased with my plain navy Breton sweater

I had two similar sweaters in the 70’s bought in Brittany which I had for years and loved them. I looked for something genuine and good quality and your navy sweater fitted the “bill”. It’s a more dense knit than expected and as a result, heavier, but the fit is superb. I would have preferred the neckline to have been a bit more generous but it’s not a problem. So thank you for such an excellent product.Dorothea A. (9 Oct 2023, 13:57)

Excellent service

I can’t thank you enough for the outstanding service and quality of the Breton jumper you sent out last week. It fits like a dream. The communication with your sales team was fantastic.Mandy P. (24 Jan 2023, 18:55)

Breton Sweater Navy Size 6

I am delighted with my purchase. If in doubt about buying the correct size I think it's best to go up a size as the Breton Sweater being so well made tends not to stretch or give with wear. High-quality products, prompt and efficient service.Peter C. (11 Jan 2019, 16:59)
