9th_Europe_Report-Quimper -- 02_armor_lux_collage.jpg
In the suburbs of Quimper we pull in to the parking lot of the large Amor-lux factory with its adjacent factory outlet store.  Armor-lux is the well known French manufacturer of quality, high-end woven garments - most notably the woven Tee-shirts with horizontal stripes.  This is considered the classic apparel from this part of France and we sure noticed the increasing number of stiped shirts on the streets as we came west.  Now we have the opportunity of learning more about these Breton style knits and clothes with a distinct nautical flare.  We recommend that you paste in "Armor-lux" in Google image search for a visual treat of horizontal stripes.
