    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.

    I ordered the Schott Navy Pea coat. I have had a few in the past but Schotts is the best one. It fits well, the collar designed to block wind on the open seas works just as well on land! It’s the kind of coat you can hand down and any recipient acknowledges the gift with reverence. The person I spoke to was courteous and professional, Jerri knows how to make this process go without a hitch! Thanks Schott for the last coat I’ll have to buy!

    This is a great jacket for cold weather. Well made and well fitted. I'm 6ft and about 140lbs. The size 36 fits me well.

    I also called to get help with sizing and their staff are very friendly and helpful.

    The quality of the jacket is outstanding! I’m very impressed with that! Not so happy with the fit. I’m 5’8” and 173 pounds, 39 inch chest. I ordered size 38 per the fitting guide and it’s too big. The sleeves are down almost to my fingertips and the jacket is too big “boxy” across my mid-section. Not a problem as I have an excellent tailor, but good to know for future purchases! All in all....pleased with this jacket.

    Look no further! The Original Navy Pea Coat by Schott is the real deal. This is exactly what I was looking for to replace my 15 year old pea coat. Actually, the Original Navy Pea Coat from Schott is even better than the one I replaced. Made of high quality material with a heavy liner will be great for the cold Chicago winters. The fit is perfect! If you are looking for an original Navy pea coat, this is the one.

    Tried several other suppliers and was not happy with the quality of their product. Once I received the Scott Peacoat, I was amazed at the high quality of the coat.

    Great winter coat, reminiscent of the one I wore 50 years ago. Customer service , via computer live chat and telephone was what all companies should strive for. Thanks.

    My first navy peacoat brand was SPIEWAK Flight Deck USA which I fell in love with. It was purchased back in 1998. Yes, I still own it. I was now due for a new one, but unfortunately, the exact brand was no longer available as it was discontinued and the store that it was purchased was no longer in business. Fortunately, I found SCHOTTNYC and after emailing their customer service a picture of above brand that I was searching for, their associate was able to validate that I was at the right place to buy a new one. I am incredibly pleased and definitely love my new SCHOTTNYC peacoat size 46 regular black color! This brand is equivalent to my first purchased peacoat. The fit, texture, appearance and cosmetics are very appealing. I highly recommend this peacoat! It’s very fashionable! I can’t wait to sport it this winter.

    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.
