How do I break out of nested loops in Java?

I’ve got a nested loop construct like this:

for (Type type : types) {
    for (Type t : types2) {
         if (some condition) {
             // Do something and break...
             break; // Breaks out of the inner loop

Now how can I break out of both loops? I’ve looked at similar questions, but none concerns Java specifically. I couldn’t apply these solutions because most used gotos.

I don’t want to put the inner loop in a different method.

I don’t want to return the loops. When breaking I’m finished with the execution of the loop block.
