So what is Original? The pea coat has many claims to origination. The British claim is that it is a development of the Blazer, used exclusively by officers, and was developed as a short uniform coat for those sailors sent up the mast to Reef the sails.
We have focused on the detail, keeping our pattern close to the Original with minimal changes keeping form with function.
We have been making Reef pea coats for over 100 years so all we had to do was create a modern day version of this iconic jacket.
Surprisingly the use of Recycled fabric is not new, The Royal Navy have used recycled fabric whenever the need was greatest.
Today we are using Teddy Bear fabric, not too heavy, 800gms, but creating a very correct look and feel.
You will make this pea coat your favourite. Comfort and Durability.
