The Glazik was created in 1928, in Quimper. The brand takes its name from the Glazik country south of Cornwall. The inhabitants of Quimper and its surroundings wore the characteristic blue waistcoat – Glazik, which means “the little blue”.
At the time, sailors made their own clothes from hemp and cotton canvas, made by weavers in Maine and used for the sails of boats. Le Glazik was immediately renowned among professionals for the durability of its jackets and canvas pants. Each port historically had its own color (brick, navy, red, green, etc.) and sailors’ clothing used this color code. Under the leadership of the founder’s daughter, Le Glazik started offering woolen jackets, pants and coats.
The Glazik remains the historical manufacturer of authentic marine coats, jackets and pants, justifying its long-standing slogan:
“Time will pass. Le Glazik will last.”
