Where are the Saint James products made?

Saint James was incorporated in 1889 in Normandy, France but archives show that wool and knitting workshops have existed in the area since the Middle Ages. See our full story in the About Saint James section of the website.

To this day, knitwear and striped shirts are still produced in our facility in the village of Saint-James, France as indicated on the product pages.

Which ones are the classic stripes?

We offer striped shirts for women, men and kids alike, in a selection of light cotton jersey, heavyweight carded cotton and anti-UV microfiber.

Our unisex stripe shirts MINQUIERS MODERNE, MERIDIEN MODERNE and GUILDO are old-time favorites. The GALATHEE II, MERIDAME II and GARDE-COTE III tops have been designed for women specifically and feature a fitted waistline. Kids can pick from children-size options of their parents marinieres in both light (MINQUIERS) and heavy cotton (MERIDIEN).
