    The US Navy Peacoat was adopted during the early 20th Century, from Britain’s Royal Navy Reefer Jacket. The Royal Navy's first regulations for uniforms for other ranks were issued in 1857, a century after the regulations for officers and this garment was originally used by Midshipmen (Reefers). These crewmen had to climb the rigging and furl and unfurl, or ‘reef’, the sails of the sailing ships of the era. The jacket was short, to allow ease of movement through the rigging. It had a double-breasted front, which displaced the buttons to each side. This helped reduce the chance of them getting caught on ropes, as the wearer maneuvered the sails. The pockets were often close to vertical, and over the flanks, rather than horizontal and at wrist level. It was made of very heavy wool, in dark Navy blue, with a nap on the face side.


    The success of the style is proved by its singularly universal appearance throughout the Navies of Europe. This may account for the US Navy's nomenclature as an Anglicization of the Dutch 'Pijekkat', being a jacket made of 'Pij' (coarse wool) cloth. Conversely, it may be from the shortening of the Belgium Navies term ‘Pilot’s Jacket’ to P. Jacket, then being misspelled/adapted to Pea Coat. The term ‘Pea Jacket’ is reputed to first appear in the Oxford English Dictionary between 1717 and 1723. ‘Pea Coat’ does not appear for another century.

    EXCELLENT FIT, VERSATILITY, AND VALUE

    Published: Fri, 5/8/2020 by C

    I'm 5'9" and 165 lbs - my chest measures 38", and the size 36 fits my shoulders perfectly. The sleeves are a little long, but that's easy to hem. The Regular length is longer than I expected: it fully covers my suit jackets well past my belt line, but that just means I can wear it with suits! The Navy color really is as dark as everyone says, but this makes it easy to wear with black and gray in addition to your more typical earth tone colors.

    With the top three buttons fastened (and the bottom unbuttoned for a slight flare), the coat has a high collar: this nicely frames a necktie knot and allows for even a short scarf to fully fill the collar with a Parisian knot. A crew neck undershirt is a classic look as shown in the product pictures, and I look forward to experimenting with turtleneck sweaters too.

    Overall, this is a versatile and well-constructed coat. It's well worth the money, but I'd recommend subscribing to the newsletter: at one point they sent out a discount code that wasn't advertised on the website, which made it an even better deal if you're willing to wait.

    EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED

    Published: Fri, 5/1/2020 by FLHS

    Need a heavy winter coat for overall needs. Classic design and awesomely constructed. I ordered size 54 which was way to big. I ordered a size 52 and that fit really well. No hassle at all sending back the size 54.

    Note I am 5'10" @ 180lbs.

    A PEA COAT FOR THE AGES (WELL, AT LEAST THREE GENERATIONS)

    Published: Fri, 5/1/2020 by Thomas Jemielity

    Schott's U.S. Navy Pea Coat is one of the finest cold-weather items made. The coat is warm, its wider collar when throw up smothers your head in comfortable warmth, and, who knows, if you're like me (no Tom Cruise look-a-like), you'll be stopped by people complimenting you on your coat. I've got two, bought each of my sons one, and just presented my sixteen-year-old grandson with his first U.S. Navy Pea Coat. That makes it a three-generations item in our family.
    That's a lot of reliable, enjoyable warmth!

    BETTER THAN THAT ISSUED TO ME

    Published: Sun, 3/8/2020 by Gordon White

    I have been wearing this coat for a few weeks now and I love it. Bought this to replace my first one which was issued to me by the USNavy in the late 70's. The quilted lining and heavier wool make this a superior coat. I hope to have this one for years to come.

    GLAD I WAITED

    Published: Thu, 2/6/2020 by John Gleason

    I was uncertain about size. I'm 6-1 tall, wear a 42L suit coat, and shirts with a 16.5 collar and 35 or 36 in. sleeves. The 740 pea coat in 42L was out of stock so, with some difficulty, I forced myself to wait for it. Smart move! On arrival, the sleeves were just a teensy bit long, but I had a local tailor fix that; otherwise, the fit was just perfect.

    And my tailor was astounded at the quality of the coat --- as was I! All those other reviewers are correct: If you're leaning toward buying a pea coat, this is The One. Don't even think about buying some cheap alternative.

    1. How dark is the Navy color?

    The Navy on the 740 is a traditional dark navy color that is almost black. You would notice blue hint when comparing to actual black. The "New Navy" color offered is more of a milder dark blue.

    2. Should I get a long size?

    We recommend people to go for the long size if they are over 6'2", or have long arms/torsos.
