    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.

    The quality is excellent and so is customer service. Needed to return it to get it just right. Filled out the return form online and was immediately sent a free return label via email . Printed label out which had a tracking #. Upon return it was processed quickly and the new size was immediately sent out . Tracking number was send via email. Customer service lady I talked to was great. The coat I have now fits great .

    I have always wanted a good pea coat so I'm glad I waited to buy this one. I live in northern Michigan . I wanted a coat that was warm but looked nice for those times when I did not want to wear a parka. I bought the black pea coat and it looks sharp. The inside has a nice smooth lining. There are pockets inside and out on both sides. I am 6 ft 2 in and weigh about 185 lb. My shirt sleeve length is about 34 in. I purchased the black 42 in chest pea coat. It fits very well and still has room to wear a shirt and sweater underneath. Sleeve length is great and goes a little past my wrist. It weighs about 4 lb 13 oz which is the same weight as my E.B. winter parka.. am extremely happy with this purchase.

    I bought it for my son for Christmas. He is beyond giddy. He absolutely loves it. The fact that it's made in America is the frosting on the cake. Thank you!

    Best winter coat you’ll ever buy!! I had a peacoat for years but it sadly wore out. This coat is far more superior in quality and warmth than my previous one. Runs a bit large but is perfect for wearing a sweater under it. I measure a 44 in the chest and I could’ve gotten away with a 42. You won’t be disappointed.

    I wasn't sure which way to go with sizing. I'm 5'9" with a chest width around 40-41" and a slight dad gut that comes and goes (currently going). I typically wear medium shirts that fit me not too loose nor too tight, but I tend to be hit or miss between medium and large with jackets and coats. Free exchanges from Schott make guessing less of a hassle, so I ordered a 42 figuring it would give me some layering room and flexibility to bend and whatnot and reviews lead me in that direction. It covered me like a child and seemed like it would fit 1.5 of me, and the sleeves extended passed my fingertips with my arms stretched out. I read another review with someone going down a couple sizes, but I didn't want to go down too much and have to pay for another exchange. I went with the 38, and luckily that fit me perfectly with some room to layer and move around.

    So, on to the product that fits. It is flawlessly made, feels tough, and it has provided plenty of warmth. The dark grey is exactly what I wanted as a dog owner. Not too black or too light grey and no dog hair to be seen on it. The pockets are generous in size, and that includes the inner pockets. Overall it feels like a coat that should last many years and perhaps be handed down to one of my children. When it comes to sizing and you're an in-betweener like me, it might be worth just giving them a call and not guess.

    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.
