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 and although it has seen many years of use it is in good condition for it age. The wool is still in great condition but it has a small hole in the back that goes straight through the lining as well. Unfortunately, someone has removed the label in the neck so it is difficult for us to determine the exact age of this jacket but we would appreciate that it was made in the 60's or 70's.
