Armor-Lux have been making nautical-themed clothing since 1938, and with WW2 causing obvious disruption to the high-quality materials that they were known for, they were back on track by 1945.
The Breton stripes that adorn much of Armor-Lux's cache were initially introduced by French Law in 1858 to help locate overboard but have since been translated into a rather cooler setting by the likes of Hollywood supernova, James Dean. Armor-Lux is a company with values and their HQ remains in the small town of Quimper, making them one of the only remaining Breton shirt manufacturers to still be based in Brittany.
