The iconic sailor's pea coat
The history of the caban dates back to the 18th century when sailors of the French Royal Navy adopted this coat to protect themselves from the elements during their sea voyages. Originally, the caban was made of thick wool and had a loose-fitting design, allowing sailors to wear it over their uniforms to shield themselves from the cold and dampness.
The term "caban" itself comes from the Breton word "kaban," which means "coat." Breton sailors played a vital role in the development of the caban as they were known for their expertise in navigation and clothing suitable for maritime conditions.
The caban was designed to withstand the harsh conditions at sea. Its thick wool fabric made it warm and waterproof, while its double-breasted design and wide lapels provided protection against wind and spray. The buttons, often made of wood or metal, were frequently adorned with anchors or other maritime symbols, adding a touch of functional decoration.
Over time, the caban became a symbol of French maritime identity. Sailors proudly wore it during their expeditions, and it quickly became an essential part of the Breton sailor's uniform. Its use later spread to sailors worldwide, becoming an iconic coat in maritime fleets.
Today, the caban is still appreciated for its timeless style and functionality. It has become a staple in fashion, transcending maritime boundaries to conquer the streets of cities. The historic brand Le Glazik continues to uphold the tradition of the caban, crafting high-quality, 100% made in France models using premium materials.
The caban embodies adventure, elegance, and the close bond between man and the sea. Its history is intertwined with the brave sailors who traversed the oceans, braving storms and exploring distant horizons. By wearing a caban, you connect with this maritime heritage and embrace a piece of history that has stood the test of time.
