Buzz Rickson's U.S.N. Pea Coat (Navy)

£699.90

This pre-WWII Pea Coat is a fantastic reproduction of those issued by the U.S. Navy until the late 1930’s. Cut from a heavy 30oz kersey wool, created on vintage machinery, the quality of this option from Buzz Rickson’s is clear to see from the start. A far cry from the modern iterations of this classic coat which we might find on the high street, this brand have built a coat with a close eye on quality and detail. The coat features two side entry, hand warming pockets, which have been lined with a brilliantly soft and warming high wale corduroy. The coat itself has been lined with a luxuriously soft rayon sateen in black, a fabric which is warming and incredibly comfortable against the skin. The collar of this coat is high and firm, just like the originals, and serves to brilliantly protect the neck. This high collar is complimented with a throat plate which can be easily button fastened across to hold it in place. Speaking of buttons, these ones are the early Naval type, and are mil spec urea buttons which have been branded with the famous anchor and 13 stars, symbolising the first thirteen states of America after its liberation from the English. Ten buttons are present on the front of this coat, as opposed to post WWII models which have eight. The brand have taken the time to perfectly recreate the ‘Naval Clothing Factory’ label, which they have woven from rayon on vintage shuttle looms. The pea coat is a much imitated design, but more often than not poorly imitated. This version from Buzz Rickson’s however, has been so brilliantly crafted that it is just about as close as you can get to the real thing without having a time machine.
