    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.

    BEST PEA COAT I'VE OWNED

    Published: Sun, 3/28/2021 by Greg Molchan

    I had the Lands End one prior to this one. That was decent, but it wore out quickly. I could tell just from unboxing that this one is superior in every way. And while not "cheap," it's very affordable, especially when you compare it to some of the other pea coats out there.

    GREAT PRODUCT

    Published: Sun, 3/21/2021 by Charles R Allspach

    Ordered by phone and then the web site. I ordered a size 40 regular even though I am a 42 regular. The fit is perfect. I weigh 200 pounds and stand about 5 feet 10 inches.

    This is a classic coat that is well made and stylish. If you have seen the movie "Three Days of the Condor" you will remember Robert Redford wearing a similar coat.

    GREAT PEA COAT

    Published: Sat, 3/6/2021 by Mark S

    I have been looking for a good pea coat for some time. Took a chance on this based on reading reviews for weeks. Unfortunately I did not order until during the deep freeze in Oklahoma and while I was recovering from COVID so I've only worn once but will be ready for next year. I will say that I am very impressed with the weight, warmth and quality of this coat. I am a CPA and used to wearing nice clothes. This year bought an Italian made beautiful overcoat from my specialty men's clothing store and and spent substantially more than this pea coat. As beautiful as that overcoat is, and I get a lot of compliments, the quality in construction, weight, and lining, do not come close to this pea coat. I know this will be a coat that I wear for years.

    JUST AS I THOUGHT

    Published: Sun, 2/21/2021 by Tom Donley

    I am 6’6”, 225 lbs. I wear a 46 extra long blazer, 37” sleeves on dress shirts. I have a 38” waist. This coat fits just right. I have full range of motion and do not feel any tightness or binding when moving.

    Functionally, the coat is quite warm yet not bulky, possibly due to the quilted lining. The collar, when turned up, adds an extra layer of protection from the wind.

    The coat looks sharp, and you can feel the quality. Very well done, Schott.

    CLASSIC PEACOAT

    Published: Mon, 2/15/2021 by James Parsons

    Absolutely as I expected, a classic timeless essential that will be an heirloom.

    Warm and durable. My only issues At 5’7”, the sleeves are a little long, and I will need to have them professionally altered.
    This however, is the case with most coats and jackets I purchase.

    BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL NAVY PEACOAT

    Published: Thu, 2/11/2021 by DaveD

    This is similar to my original navy peacoat only better. Some 62 years later this peacoat is very well made and very warm. I would recommend this peacoat.

    WONDERFUL INVESTMENT

    Published: Thu, 1/28/2021 by David Hayden

    I bought this coat in the long version way back in 2013, thought I might write another review because well 8 years with this coat is an experience and beats out of the box reviews imo. It has held up extremely well and is just like it was when I unpacked it in 2013, it wears extremely well with time there never was much pilling or any thing defective etc. The threading in the buttons I modified myself because I simply do it with all sewn buttons with any coat, which is with a syringe I bind the thread and button with high strength super glue where it wont be seen but also keep any possible unthreading as happens with sewn buttons...never was an issue just what I do. I recently had it dry cleaned and it is simply in wonderful condition, heavy, extremely warm and it has sharp looks and has served me VERY well over the 8 years I have had it...I have NEVER been cold even in the slightest in this Pea coat. Thank you Schott for making wonderfully well made high quality products, you cannot go wrong with this coat if your looking for a warm winter coat with good looks. 8 years and going strong, I will have MANY more years with this great coat.

    NAVY PEACOAT 740N

    Published: Mon, 1/25/2021 by Ken Sransky

    Closest I could find to replace my original US Navy Peacoat .from the 70s.. Customer service a very helpful and responsive in determining the size and color and all my questions. Pointed out the full size is actually an overcoat. And recommended a size smaller for a more trimmer fit based on my height and weight.. Shipped quick, looks good and fits great!

    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.
