The Navy Peacoat

August 1, 2018

 

Referenced to as early as the 18th century, but with origins much earlier in time, the peacoat lives on today in much the same format. It has a distinctive convertible collar that when worn up provides protection from harsh driving winds and rain, as well as seawater splash as it was a uniform for the navies of the world. The material used is a particularly resilient wool melton which is at once insulating yet breathable. Hand warmers on the front provide additional comfort.

 The peacoat was always a garment for active wear. To allow for the required range of motion, a generous box pleat and vents are provided.

 We cut peacoats quite close to the body, giving a lean, shapely aesthetic. Unlike the overcoat or the even more ponderous greatcoat which reach to below the knees, the peacoat is short---only two or three inches longer than a lounge jacket.

 

For a more urbane peacoat, it can be made in a more refined material like 17oz. pure cashmere which we also carry.
