OUR historical jacket
The jacket is similar to a blouse, quite short, it was worn by sailors but also in some uniforms of the National Navy. It has become a trend in clothing, both male and female, especially for its comfort and practicality. It is in the 50s that Le Minor designed its first jackets, in a woolen sheet from Tournier. Elegant and solid, the wool sheet is a naturally waterproof material. This typical Breton garment is characterized by its slit collar, with a wide edge, maintained by two buttons inside the jacket.
Creation of our historical jacket
Historically a technical garment, the Breton jacket designed by Le Minor is warm and resistant. Its manufacture uses a very tight weaving technique, coupled with a fulling of the fabric, which makes the fabric naturally water-repellent and effective against the wind.
Necessary to face the bad weather during sea crossings. This model of jacket is the reissue of a model made by Le Minor in the 1950s.
