Ham Yard Vintage is a really interesting online vintage store, specialising in vintage workwear (if that is your thing), but also known for getting in deadstock items that have effectively been ‘found’ in more or less original condition. Mainland Europe still seems like a good place for discovering vintage. France in particular.

Right now the shop has some vintage Italian military plimsolls, Italian naval tops and French naval t-shirts for example and in the past, it has stocked some vintage cycling tops and vintage bowling shoes too. But I’m focusing on the item you see here – these wonderful Breton tops.

Yes, you can buy a Breton in various places, probably even on the high street when the sun starts to shine. But the ones here differ because of their age. They have a look and an authenticity that you would struggle to find elsewhere.

These tops are deadstock vintage (i.e. unused) and as an owner of two of them, I can tell you that the quality is excellent and the colours wonderful. Each one is also made with a cotton weave, not printed like a number of modern reproductions. As you can see from the photos, they also work well for both men and women.

Different colours to choose from as well as the option to go long or short sleeve and although possibly a little pricier than your average high street top, not massively in light of the quality and the uniqueness. This is still affordable vintage.

How affordable? Those prices are from £34 and if you are in the UK, delivery is currently free.
