A beautiful merino wool layer for busy days on and off the bike

Functionally, merino wool is the most beautifully soft and moisture friendly natural fibre there is. It works to move perspiration, but also keeps you warm and fresh. Pared with a Rapha base layer, the Breton Sweater is a perfect mid– or outer–layer for commutes and active days where you need exceptional comfort, breathability and insulation. The sweater has a fully fashioned construction for a great shape and fit.

Stylistically, the Breton stripes, worn by early pioneers of road cycling such as the magically named Hippolyte Aucouturier, was originally popularised by artist Paul Gauguin (adopting the work clothes of Breton fishermen) and then in turn Pablo Picasso, and other style icons like Brigitte Bardot. So there’s plenty of romanticism as well as functionality in this wonderful garment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I bought this as a present for my non-cycling wife and she loves it. Nice details like the phone pocket in the side and reinforced shoulder. She's a small 8 and it's a snug fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cozy sweater I am 163 cm and I would like this sweater to be a little bit longer. It ends exactly at the end of my lumbar spine.. It's rather thick, great as a medium layer in colder weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and comfortable I've tried a couple of versions of this sweater, and this was by far my favorite. I have the navy blue, and the color and striping on the top half are flattering. I also like that it's a mid-weight pullover with a functional pocket. The lighter weight one was nice but felt less substantial and had no pocket, so I returned it. I also tried an early version of the merino Breton but the color wasn't great on me, and it seemed short. This one's perfect, will be great for fall and may even layer well for winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits to size, good quality and very useful. Happy because it solves the problem of cold arms in particular. I wear it over a short sleeved jersey until I have warmed up. It is easy-care and looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple chic I bought this Merino Wool Breton in Navy Blue and in White. I couldn't decide which I would like best. I am keeping both of them as they are both super-stylish and comfortable to wear. I love the secure but invisible zipped pocket in the seam. Lots of neat details. Love it.

I have the lightweight merino Breton and found it quite large. Does this sweater have the same sizing as the lightweight one ie quite large? 

Asked by: Victoria bc
HI, this top does have the same sizing as the lightweight version. It does come up quite big. We often recommend sizing down.
