    The sailor sweater: a men's wardrobe classic

    "The true men's sailor sweater" has made Le Minor hosiery a success.

    An emblematic and timeless garment, this model has remained unchanged for almost 100 years. Made from plain wool, this sailor sweater is an absolute classic in men's wardrobes. The cut is quite narrow and the body quite long, as this navy-colored marine knit was originally designed to be worn close to the body, to keep warm without getting in the way when maneuvering on a boat.

    That's why it's commonly called a sock sweater. There are certain pieces in a wardrobe that cannot be ignored. A pair of raw denim jeans, a yellow raincoat or a coated canvas hunting jacket, rain boots, a heavy jersey marinière. The plain navy blue sailor sweater is one of them. With its Breton tradition (although the button placket is a Scottish innovation), it's worth calling on the oldest hosiery workshop still operating in Brittany: the Le Minor hosiery workshop dates back to 1922.
