History of the Peacoat:
Originally designed for sailors who climbed up the ropes of sail ships, the classic peacoat is close fitting with a slight flare around the hips. The jacket was design to be longer than a jacket which covers the backside, but short enough for the sailors to climb and move about in.
Unchanged for over 200 years, the basic Navy pea coat has everything a person wants in a jacket: function, durability, and esthetics.
The peacoat has a simple, classic cut, and can go from casual to slightly dressy. It is classic in style and design. It also wears well and keeps a man warm in all kinds of weather, at sea or otherwise.
