The German Navy Pea Coat with Insignia is an example of quality military surplus. These pea coats were designed to give sailors in the German Navy a stylish overcoat to wear while on patrol, on shore, or back at base. The pea coat has been in use by sailors as far back as the 1720s and still is issued today in most all NATO allied naval forces. This long history stems from both a naval quality of tradition but also because the pea coat may just be the perfect overcoat for sailors.
Made from a heavy wool blend fabric, the pea coat is tough enough to stand up to the challenges a sailor faces. The jackets are warm, robust, and present an image that instills pride in the naval forces. The front double breasted design with bright gold buttons emblazoned with an anchor provide both function as well as style for the sailor who wears it. The fashion industry has taken notice of the pea coat for decades and virtually every well known menswear line has their own version of the pea coat, just priced significantly more than this military original.
