The Pea Coat
The Pea Coat is an outer coat worn by sailors in the European and American navies. Pea Coats are very popular today and are characterized by broad lapels, double-breasted fronts, often large wooden or metal buttons, and vertical or slash pockets. Since the 1720s the modern pea coat has maintained much of its original design and composition. The pea coat will give you a clean and polished look.
