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 a very heavy wool, in dark Navy blue, with a nap on the face side.
The success of the style is proved by its singularly universal appearance throughout the Navies of Europe. This may account for the US Navy's nomenclature as an Anglicization of the Dutch ‘Pijekkat, being a jacket made of ‘Pij’ (a coarse wool) cloth. Conversely, it may be from the shortening of the Belgium Navies term ‘Pilot’s Jacket’ to P. Jacket, then being misspelt / adapted to Pea Coat. The term ‘Pea Jacket’ is reputed to first appear in the Oxford English Dictionary between 1717 and 1723. ‘Pea Coat’ does not appear for another century.

Schott NYC US 740N Pea Navy Jacket Colour: Navy, Size: 36

I bought my first Schott pea coat on a trip to New York in 2005, its lasted me until this year when it finally succumbed to the moths, still the best value coat I've ever bought. Stuarts were the only shop to have a size 36 in the UK, I'll be back in ten years for my next one...

Schott NYC US 740N Pea Navy Jacket Colour: Navy, Size: 46

This is a great jacket, there are many Pea Coat jackets you can choose from but none as iconic as this. It is made to last, and lined and padded for proper chilly conditions. Size wise I would go for your normal chest size.
