PICK THE PERFECT
PEA COAT

A pea coat is a timeless outerwear staple that will never let you down

The pea coat design really has stood the test of time ­­– it’s around 300 years old. Created to keep sailors warm on the high seas, this iconic cover-up has barely changed in the intervening centuries: think short double-breasted jacket in heavy wool, with internal stuffing and high vertical pockets to keep hands warm. While the naval heritage endures, the pea coat is just as versatile for us landlubbers. We’ve been sure to retain authentic details – such as the wide-notch lapels, anchor embossed flat buttons and wrist straps – but we’ve tailored the shape for a more modern fit. Wear with a chunky roll neck or pop the back of the collar for extra seafaring style points.
