16 Pea Coats For Men and Women: Made in the USA

(Updated October 25, 2016)

According to the U.S. Navy, the term “pea coat” has been around since at least 1723.  The heavy topcoats worn by sailors in those days were made of a material called “Pilot Cloth” or “P-Cloth” for short. The outerwear made from it  were called p-jackets or p-coats — later a pea coat. Hard to believe that anything can stay in style for nearly 300 years, but the pea coat is still going strong.
