Original Model from Brittany.
This jacket, produced in France exclusively for us using only natural materials, has all the qualities, functionality and style that made it the quintessential garment used by many of Europe’s navy and merchant fleets in the 19th century. This beautiful jacket is made in Quimper by the Breton company of Armor lux following their genuine standards of fabric and finish. The outer cloth is densely woven from pure new wool; the lining comprises viscose over cotton in diamond-shaped quilting.
The straight-cut jacket features a reversible button-up collar with storm fasteners for full protection against the elements. It is double-breasted with three pairs of fashionable metal uniform buttons.
Armor lux. Maritime Style from Brittany.
"Armor" is the Breton word for sea, and "lux" can only mean the light on the coast. A maritime style, in any case, is what characterises many of the garments produced by Armor lux. The company, set up by a Swiss man in the Breton town of Quimper at the end of the 1930s, manufactures sweaters, shirts, dresses, trousers, hats, caps and scarves. In the 1960s, Armor lux established its own dyeing workshop so that all manufacturing processes were gathered under one roof, from fabric production to quality controls. In the 1970s, they introduced their first major collection. Since then, the label stands for simple, comfortable cuts, classic colours and an uncompromising approach regarding quality in terms of material and workmanship. For the most part, the production takes place at the headquarters in France and to a small extent in factories in Madagascar and Tunisia.
