About Pea Coats

A pea coat (or pea jacket, pilot jacket) is an outer coat, generally of a navy-colored heavy wool, originally worn by sailors of European navies.Pea coats are characterized by broad lapels, double-breasted fronts, often large wooden buttons, and vertical or slash pockets. Although it first appeared in the early 18th century, modern renditions still maintain the original design and composition.

A "bridge coat" is a pea coat that extends to the thighs, and is a uniform exclusively for officers and Chief Petty Officers. The "reefer" is for officers only, and is identical to the basic design but usually has gold buttons and epaulettes.


History

The term "pea coat" originated from the Dutch or West Frisian word pijjekker, in which pij referred to the type of cloth used,which was called "Pilot cloth" (P-cloth), a coarse kind of twilled blue cloth with a nap on one side. The terms "pea coat" and "pea jacket" were first used as early as 1723, when it became a cold weather uniform in many European navies, most prominently in the British Royal Navy and Dutch Royal Netherlands Navy. The US Navy adopted them as early as 1881, becoming standard fare in the 20th century.

The modern appeal of the coat stems from celebrity interest in the item, and its classic style and practical simplicity.Once considered a luxury item for civilians, it is now popular as casual winter wear on college campuses and among the young demographic.
