Whitstable and More…

It’s a Sunday night and it’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Mon Breton Team (me and Isla!). Last weekend we took a trip to Whitstable which is our new Brighton. It’s buzzing with independent shops and restaurants and has a working harbour where I watched a catch being brought in and ordered half a dozen Whitstable oysters straight off the boat. Seasoned with some lemon and Tabasco I was in heaven! We never like to miss an opportunity for a photo shoot and the weather duly obliged. I love demonstrating the versatility of the Breton shirt which I paired with a leather jacket (found in a charity shop in Clapham) and my trusty levis. Isla wore hers with some very cute dungarees and as always looked gorgeous.

Our press department has been in full flow. Cosmo Online have been in touch and we’ve been fortunate enough to contribute to an article on “25 Gifts For Men That Aren’t Your Boyfriend”. A local estate agency, Aspire that champion local businesses, recently approached us and they kindly gave us a 2 page spread in their monthly magazine that is distributed throughout SW London.


It’s always fun to talk about Mon Breton and it’s great that people want to hear our story. Our men’s shirts are getting a lot of attention at the moment and they were used in the November issue of luxury yacht and lifestyle magazine Boat International which we were so proud to see on the magazine stands earlier this month.

Our very close friends and great supporters were married this weekend and we were lucky enough to be invited to the Dorchester and the Natural History Museum to share in their special day. We gained a commission to provide bespoke robes for the bridesmaids, bride and mothers of the bride and groom. It was such a fun project and it got a lot of love on Insta. It might be something to offer more formally on the website. As always you can send us your thoughts to We get back to everyone as soon as we can.

Our new project – Zeitgeist Cashmere is really picking up momentum. It’s where we embroider phrases, quotes and lyrics onto 100% cashmere jumpers. We have done 2 so far and the third, which is in production will be our best yet. We cannot wait to share it with you.

A Mon Breton makes a great gift for a loved one due to its unique nature. They do take time to make and the team is small so please get your order in ASAP. This will give us time to fulfill all our orders pre-Christmas.
