The french sailor shirt has always been a fashion staple, but it is currently a must have fashion accessory. The striped boat-neck shirts, first worn by french sailors, gained popularity when introduced by Coco Chanel in 1917.
Originally the shirt featured 21 stripes. One for each of Napoleon's victories.
