A men’s pea coat was originally designed for the US Navy. They are made from heavy wool as it was always cold and it was a heavy and durable coat. They are shorter in length and with broad lapels, double breasted fronts and large buttons. They also have vertical slash pockets. They were even worn as early as the 1720s and to this day still maintain the orginal design components
A pea coat can be tailored. It should fit the correct way as there is a definite look that should be achieved.
Peacoats are warm, namely because of the type of man they were designed for. They were made for those on ships in cold weather.
