This Schott 740 peacoat in navy overs a truly luxurious coat. Not one detail was over looked when creating this jacket, from the military anchor buttons to the hand warmer pockets. The quilted lining ensures warmth and quality for this garment as well as the materials used for the outer layers. The Schott Peacoat has a history behind it, this is a great wardrobe staple to see you through the colder months.
The US Navy Peacoat was adopted during the early 20th Century, from Britain’s Royal Navy Reefer Jacket. The Royal Navy's first regulations for uniforms for other ranks were issued in 1857, a century after the regulations for officers and this garment was originally used by Midshipmen (Reefers). These crewmen had to climb the rigging and furl and unfurl, or ‘reef’, the sails of the sailing ships of the era. The jacket was short, to allow ease of movement through the rigging. It had a double-breasted front, which displaced the buttons to each side. This helped reduce the chance of them getting caught on ropes, as the wearer maneuvered the sails. The pockets were often close to vertical, and over the flanks, rather than horizontal and at wrist level. It was made of very heavy wool, in dark Navy blue, with a nap on the face side.
