The US Navy-issue Peacoat is one of the most iconic and enduring outerwear designs of all time. Although accounts differ, there are mentions of the peacoat in print as far back at 1720, and the American design undoubtedly traces its lineage back to the British versions (which may have been inspired by the Dutch).

The US Navy made theirs of a 30oz "Kersey" wool (warmer and more weather resistant than later melton wool versions) with a rayon fabric lining, back centre vent, two handwarmer pockets lined in tan corduroy and two interior pockets. Post-war peacoats like this one had eight button fronts instead of ten, and larger lapels which better lay flat. Interior of the coat is stencilled "JC MANN 514 05 37". Tagged size 36. Made in USA.
