    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 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.

    Beautiful jacket, thick warm, and well made. But there are lots of reviews to wax eloquent on that. Writing this one to help all you tall skinny guys out there. I was on the fence about whether to get a normal or a long because I was worried the long would be too tall in the body. After getting the sizing info from Jerri I still wasn't sure. My measurements are thus:

    Height: 6'2"
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Chest 35.5-36 inches

    I tried the 34 regular and the body fit great, nice and slim, didn't make me feel like a box on stilts (which many standard sizes do) but the sleeves were too short. So I went with the 34L. Fits PERFECT. So there you have it. Tall and skinny, measurements as above? Go with the Long, you won't be sorry.

    (haha, and Jerri told me to go with the long to begin with, should have listened to her :-D)

    I bought the long version of the pea coat 10/11/2019. Three months in and the piling on the coat is so bad around the buttons, pockets, and sleeves I’m embarrassed to wear it. I thought I was buying a real wool coat but my dry cleaner informed my that my coat is a nylon blend instead of all wool. I wish I would have saved my money to by the real thing instead of a cheap imitation pea coat. Website didn’t help when ordering it just said Melton Wool, which I I assumed meant 100% wool not an inferior blend. Wish I had my money back.

    The size recommendation made after I put in my info was spot on. The jacket is extremely high quality, well made, extremely warm, and fits perfectly.

    Excellent coat the fit and feel far exceeds my expectations. The only reason why I did not give a 5 star review is because only after about 3 weeks of wear a button fell off. After closer inspection I noticed on a couple others the string holding them on is starting to come undone. Not a huge issue to have them sewn on stronger but for a coat that costs over $300 I would expect it to be stronger from the manufacturing process. Otherwise its a great coat and would recommend to anyone looking for a genuine pea coat.

    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.
