A reproduction of the 1910s pea coat adopted by the US Navy.
The pea coat of the 1910s was characterized by its use of thick, high-density melton wool material and by its anchor buttons engraved with 13 stars representing the coat of arms of the United States.
The 13 stars originate from the fact that the United States had 13 states when it became independent in 1777.
The large collar is designed so that when working at sea, the collar can be raised to cover the face and provide adequate protection against strong winds. There are also vertical slit pockets, which are used as hand warmer pockets to warm your frozen hands.
