The sailor sweater guide
It's not always easy to find your way around the many different sailor sweater cuts we offer. That's why we've put together the 2023 Sailor's Sweater Guide, to help you choose the sweater style that's right for you.
The true Le Minor sailor sweater has not changed since 1922. The cut is quite narrow and the body quite long because this navy colored marine knit was originally designed to be worn close to the body, to keep warm without hindering maneuvers on a boat. That's why it is commonly called "sock sweater".
It is between tradition and modernity that we have revisited the cut of the real sailor sweater for a looser version. Otherwise, the recipe is unchanged: 100% wool, knitted, cut and assembled in Brittany in our own workshops.
The modern navy sweater, with a sportswear inspired cut, completes our navy sweater range. Ribbing on the sleeves and lower body accentuates the loose fit and slightly blouses the sweater.
