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 you warm in all kinds of weather, at sea or otherwise.
