LE MINOR AND THE MARINIÈRE
Marine clothing has been made in the Le Minor workshops for 100 years. Marine sweaters and sailors' jackets were known to be sturdy and to protect the Breton fishermen. Later, Le Minor also dressed sailors, non-commissioned officers and officers of the French Navy for 40 years. This sailor's jacket, knitted in Rachel knit, renowned for its robustness, is directly inspired by the regulation clothing of the Royal Navy. It is however free from its specifications for a more feminine cut, especially with its slits. The secret of a French manufacture which lasts in time is the sharing of the manual details granted to each garment, which endure since 1922. We still make this model today, which is a classic in our collections.
OUR SECOND-HAND CONCEPT
In November 2020, we launched the Gwenner Glaz: Green Friday in Breton. The concept is simple: collect your old clothes, from all eras, and offer in return vouchers to our customers. With all these returns, we were able to open a second hand fashion department, with carefully selected second hand clothes. Please note: all our second hand clothes are second hand clothes, usually already worn. They may therefore have traces of wear. Nevertheless, we have sorted them, selected them carefully, cleaned them and repaired them when necessary (if necessary, it is always specified). Non-repairable garments were recycled in the same way as all our production scraps. We have classified the second hand garments in 3 categories: 1 - Very good condition: garment that has been worn very little, with no defects, and no wear and tear 2 - Good condition: garment worn and washed several times, with slight traces of wear that are mentioned in the description, but no defects or repairs 3 - Fair condition: garment worn and washed several times, which has one or more defects or repairs, which are mentioned in the description and photographed. Here, it is a garment in Very Good condition.
