Timelessly Chic Saint James

Old-school Saint James! 
Saint James clothing was established in Lower Normandy in 1889. Most classically known as the original Breton seaman’s sweater, Saint James’ stripes are now an iconic part of the fashion world, gracing figures around the globe.

100% densely-knit cotton, our genuine Saint James shirts are both stylishly and physically enduring. They’re also perfect for this time of year: an ideal transition piece for those days when the temperature fluctuates dramatically.

We have them on hand in smaller sizes suitable for persons of petite persuasion, or the more generous ‘unisex’ cut. And these striped shirts are incredibly versatile — for women, we suggest dressing them up with pearls and a skirt, or down with a pair of capris. Men can wear them for work to weekend, simply by swapping out khakis for jeans.

Momo has red and white stripes ...
... and blue and white!

Today, sailor stripes may be trendy, but at Momo, we’ve chatted with customers who have owned their Saint James shirts for decades and still love them after all these years. You can recognize a person wearing an authentic Saint James — it speaks without words.

A Continuing Love Affair

We at Momo have spoken often and at length about beautiful, durable, wearable and timeless linen. We love linen. We love linen year-round. We love linen housewares, linen clothing, linen accessories. One of Momo’s favorite sources is Fog Linen Work from Tokyo.

Disappointed by a lack of affordable everyday linens in Japan, designer Yumiko Sekine set out to find a quality manufacturer. Yumiko settled on producers in Lithuania, where her work is now made from some of the finest flax fibers in the world. Thus was born Fog Linen Work.

Momo has received quite an assortment of FLW goods, ranging from whimsical and decorative bunting, to practical aprons, table linens, bags and totes to elegant clothing.

Take a gander at a small sample of our latest shipment!
