OUR virgin wool sailor sweater
A must-have model in Le Minor collections for decades, this Breton shirt is a timeless piece. A sailor sweater for men in ecru color, it has a set of stripes that we call "placed": the plain space at the top of the body is reminiscent of the "design" formed by the stripes of the cotton sailors of the French Navy. Supplier to the French Navy for over 40 years, Le Minor was inspired by this iconic design early on to offer this true sailor sweater for men, for lovers of Brittany, sailing, and iconic French products.
Creation of our virgin wool sailor sweater
Like all the clothes offered for sale by Le Minor, this real ecru/navy navy sweater is entirely made in the brand's Morbihan workshops, from knitting to finishing. The virgin wool used to make this sweater is spun and dyed in Switzerland. Minor continues to work with the French Navy's wool supplier, which produces a strong and therefore durable wool yarn. From the selection of a quality fiber, the manufacturing of this real sailor's knitwear follows precise manufacturing steps in our workshops: knitting on rectilinear knitting machines with a tightening allowing to guarantee Le Minor's Hand; steaming of the wool to soften and shrink it; hand cutting into shape; assembly of the sweater following several sewing steps. All these steps guarantee the specificities of the Le Minor sweater: a particular hand and finishes.
History of the sailor sweater
Beyond the cliché of the Frenchman in a sailor suit, this real sailor sweater conveys an image of know-how and tradition. The collar of this real sailor sweater is higher than a classic round collar: the two buttons in the collar make it almost a chimney neck sweater. The straight bottom of the sweater, with no ribbing, guarantees the classic style of the men's navy sweater. Slightly shorter and wider than the plain version, the striped navy sweaters are a little less tight. A true all-rounder of style, a true ecru/navy navy sweater is suitable for all social situations: for cool summer evenings or for going to work, it is warm and stylish. This true knit is an essential for any men's wardrobe worth its salt!
On se rend bien compte de la qualité supérieure du produit et livraison rapide
Ein wunderbarer, klassischer Pullover, aus sehr gutem Material, der mich wärmt und an meine schönen Ferientage in der Bretagne erinnert
Le pull marin comme on l imagine : laine dense, col légèrement montant, robuste, résistant et chaud. Avec sa qualité il est parti pour des années.
Classe sous un blazer, avec un pantalon large, à condition de le prendre "chaussette" : je taille 38, habituellement je prends 2 (très à l aise); j ai pris 1 comme conseillé, il est ajusté sans être collant. 😊👍
Excellente tenue au lavage, qualité impeccable
Je suis vraiment ravie de mon achat.
Le service client est parfait, politesse, efficacité, conseil... bref, si vous voulez un vrai pull marin, n'hésitez surtout pas.
