Originally worn by working sailors and fishermen, this coat was adopted by the British Royal Navy and the US Navy from the Dutch for its use against the harsh cold weather. The Peacoat gets its name from the Dutch word “pije”, which was a type of coarse woolen fabric.
Recognized by its neatly tapered double-breasted silhouette and perfectly placed pockets, the Cockpit USA Peacoat is the ideal addition to any Fall wardrobe.

The Cockpit USA Admiral USN Peacoat features an ulster collar that can be buttoned-up to protect against the harsh cold weather elements.

This historic silhouette is updated for a modern fit in our Naval Short Leather Peacoat, shown above on Fashion Icon Mr. Rutherford.

Drawing from the rugged design needed by sailors both above the high seas and below in submarines, this men’s vintage leather coat has all the modern style of today.

Last but certainly not least, the USN Bridge Coat is inspired by the classic wool winter coats worn by Naval Officers, Chief Petty Officers and even Mid Shipmen Cadets.
