        I have several of these wonderful long-sleeved bretons. They are just the right weight for layering OR wearing solo. I ordered my larger Boden size (10 US) and this keeps the lumps under cover. Very soft, washes well and I dry them flat, on a rack to ensure size retention. They air dry quite quickly. I also appreciate the graceful neckline that doesn't reveal all.

              Really love my shirt! Got it in the white/navy and it's PERFECT. It's good quality so I have a feeling that it will last a while. And it's the perfect length, too, for wearing untucked..

                I really like the style of the Breton. I have ordered it in multiple colors! The only issue I have is the Raven in the Raven/gray marl combo is not a crisp black but more "worn" looking shade of black. Still great for casual looks.

                  I wanted a comfortable shirt that would look nice with a pair of chinos- this one is it. The fabric is soft and comfortable but it also keeps its shape. The colors are nice and strong, even after several washes the shirt has retained its brightness. I am thinking of getting it on other colors.

                      Though I've been a Boden fan 7 years or so, I've merely admired the Breton tees. Last year, I opted for the essential tee instead because they are cheaper (which I do love) in tank and long sleeved versions. Recently, I acquired a long sleeved breton second hand and immediately went onto Boden website to order another. I ordered the ivory with navy stripe. These shirts have a lovely lightweight almost silky quality to them, very different from a heavy cotton. The boatneck and slim fitting arms are very flattering and will be a perfect first layer among many when the weather gets cool. Putting it on I immediately feel pulled together, great with jeans, and I plan to wear it tucked in with skirts and perhaps a belt. I will be adding to my supply of Bretons in the future. I am between a size 2 and 4 in Boden, 5' 4" 116 lbs, and this I ordered a 2 and it was perfect.

                      I've bought long sleeve Breton's for several years in a row, and, I must say that this years batch are a HUGE disappointment. The fabric is flimsy, and will not be warm enough to carry me through the winter, and, I'm talking Texas winters, not North East or Mid-West winters. In past years, the style had 3 distinct buttons on the shoulder. Forget about that cute touch, as this is the plain vanilla variety. This is more in line with the Breton's that were available during the summer. I won't be ordering this again unless Boden goes back to their previous winner of a Breton.

                        I'm a big fan of Bretons, and this is the best I've seen. It's comfortable, classic, and seems well-made. It's a little thinner and a bit more snug that some, which will lend itself well to layering. I'll be wearing mine every weekend this fall and winter.
