Les Marins font la Mode

This fantastic book is everything that this blog is about! The history, in the broadest sense of the word, of the Striped Shirt. I managed to get a copy through Amazon France - highly recommended, especially since it won't be long until you'd have to pay a fortune for this (collectible) book. 

It is the book that accompanies the exhibition at the Musée National de la Marine; a wealth of information, historic and contemporary photographs, uniforms, fashion, anecdotes... A must-have for any marinière enthusiast.
