Bourrienne passBourrienne cutPleated bibClassic rounded wrist with pleated placket – Gathered Back

The COMEDIAN shirt is an exceptional piece of the house. A collar inspired by starched broken collars and revisited, a breastplate pleated in Brittany by a craftsman, then sewn fold by fold. A piece that requires know-how and time. This piece is a beautiful translation of Bourrienne’s values, patience, exigency, and timelessness.

Quentin is 186 cm/ 6,1 foot and is wearing size 40.

The Bourrienne Pass

The Col Bourrienne was created from the study of the starched and removable broken collar. At the time, collars and cuffs were detachable, washed and then starched. We modernized this collar by removing the small folded triangle. This gives it a simpler and more graphic look. This collar becomes a recognizable element of the brand.



The pleated bib

Inspired by an archive folder from the 19th century, we have reproduced this breastplate identically with today’s craftsmanship and means. At the time, it was made entirely by hand.

Today, we have called upon a French pleating craftsman to carry out the pleating, then our workshop sews each pleat one by one. For this stage, three seamstresses intervene: one to prepare, one to sew and one to iron each sewn ply. This requires a lot of time, patience and expertise, which gives this piece a real rarity and beauty.


Gathered back

We find on the period shirts, many gathers, which served primarily to give ease but also for aesthetic reasons. On our Bourrienne cut, inspired by the romantic volumes, we have reproduced this series of gathers starting from the back yoke. This gives the shirt a touch of originality and comfort.
