    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 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.

    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.

    This coat is much better quality compared to many other pea coats that I looked at. The wool is thick and very warm. A timeless classic I hope to have for many years! I am 6' - 190lbs and the 42 regular fits me perfectly. A quality product and a great value!

    Beautifully crafted coat. Heavyweight wool, well lined and true to size. Sizing guide on point. Birthday gift for my husband who has been looking for a coat that replicated the one he wore as a teenager working on the docks. He was so impressed and loves his new jacket. Worth every penny and will last for years to come.

    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.
