A pea coat (or peacoat, pea jacket, pilot jacket, reefer jacket) is an outer coat, generally of a navy-coloured heavy wool, originally worn by sailors of European and later American navies.
Are Peacoats out of style?
Though the peacoat is a timeless outerwear staple with a storied history, that doesnt take away from the current appeal it carries for fall/winter 2020. While a peacoats timelessness is cause for desire, directional styling makes it all the more covetable when entering a new season.
Does the navy still use pea coats?
The peacoat is an enduring piece of military chic, perpetually cool for civilians to wear. The Navy says its replacing the peacoat “to reduce current Navy seabag uniform component requirements” and to update the look of sailors with a lighter-weight and more protective synthetic fabric.
