Pea coats from Brittany and the world !

The pea coat accompanies adventurers and travelers for centuries all over the world. A story to which Dalmard Marine is particularly attached.  

True to the history of the pea coat

Dalmard Marine has always wanted to stay true to the history of the pea coat. The Breton company, which specializes in waterproof woolen pea coats, has for decades given the names of large international ports to its different models of women’s, men’s and children’s pea coats.

Detroit, Toulon, Oslo pea coats…

Dalmard Marine pays much attention to the names of his pea coats. Some examples to support.

Let’s start with his waisted pea coat for women: the “Detroit” pea coat. The fifth largest city in the United States and an important port city, Detroit is located on the Detroit River in the American Midwest. The city was founded in 1701 by a Frenchman, Antoine de Lamothe-Cadillac. Its name comes from the French word “strait”, referring to the river connecting the two lakes St. Clair and Erie.

Let’s continue with one of the flagship products for men of the brand: the “Toulon” pea coat. Inspired by the National Navy, this model refers to the vast French commercial port located in the Var. First military port of Europe, it occupies today a strategic function on the Mediterranean axis.

Finally, let’s talk about the “Oslo” authentic pea coat for men. Capital of Norway, Oslo is located on the south coast of the country, at the bottom of the Oslofjord. Since the Viking Age, Norway has seen the birth of great explorers. In the year one thousand, Leiv Eriksson enrolled in history books by discovering America. Since then, Norwegians’ need for innate travel has brought them to every corner of the globe.

Port and starboard, the signs of the sea

The Dalmard Marine logo is rooted in its maritime history. It represents the port-side and starboard-side buoys, markers which allow boats to return home safely into the harbours and along the channels....

The kabic, or traditional Breton coat

Before being handed the name "kabic" (from the Breton word, "kab", meaning cloak, with "ig" added on the end), the "kab-aod" seafaring cloak was a hooded jacket designed in the 19th century by "goémoniers" (seaweed farmers) in the Finistère region, to protect themselves against bad weather. ...
