usn pea coat MJN45032C1

Colors: Navy, black, charcoal gray, dark olive

The pea coat was first worn in the 18th century by sailors of American and European navies. Originally, the coats were made of a heavy twill cloth called pilot cloth or P-cloth. The garments made from this material were called P-jackets, which later became P-coats. This heavy coarse fabric protected sailors in bad weather. Structurally, a pea coat is recognizable by its wide lapels, large buttons and vertical pockets. Pea coats are double breasted and traditionally fall at the mid-thigh. The original pea coat was so heavy that it featured a metal chain at the neckline, which was used to hang it.
