Product Information

Classic Breton smock in navy blue by French Saint James label, better known as "vareuse" in French. 

  • 100% quality cotton canvas, the same fabric and navy dye as their men's French work jacket
  • v-neck collar
  • 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. We stock three different makes solely to give customers options in terms of pricing and branding, see also:

Lovely quality

I recently purchased this smock and found it to be of very good quality. Unfortunately, l had to return it as it was too big (which was my fault) and am now waiting for the size down to come back in stock. The Customer Service was extremely helpful. Thank you.Ann P. (Feb 11 2021, 13:39 pm)
