Pea Coat is the name of the traditional wool coat worn by the US Navy during world war two. With it's classic cut and well made design it has become a timeless garment that combines great protection from the elements in a well dressed way!
The jacket can be buttoned both ways depending on which direction the wind blows, a detail that could be crucial if you spent your days on the cold north Atlantic sea.
This is an original vintage jacket from 1962 and although it has seen many years of use it is in good condition for it age. The wool is still fine but in some places it has little wear and a few small holes also occur, nothing unusual considering its age. One of the top buttons under the collar is also missing.
