The Peacoat

Another favourite piece to warn off the cold: the Pea coat dates back to the early 1900’s where working men would have to brave all weather conditions at sea. Therefore requiring something of good quality that was dense enough to seal in body warmth. The Pea coat was made and has sufficiently been one of the most dependable garments to date.
