The US Navy-issue WWII era 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).
In WWII, the US Navy made theirs of a 30oz "Kersey" wool with a rayon fabric lining, ten anchor-and-rope button (eight visible) front, back centre vent, two handwarmer pockets lined in tan corduroy and two interior pockets.
Made in USA.
