  • Pea Coats for Winter

    Schott jackets are definitely an American original and have been produced since 1913 and are union made by Local 69 in New York City. And, they are definitely here to stay. From the classic wool pea coat to the leather pea coat Schott produces, you can’t get more original than that. They’ve taken a military vintage classic and kept it well, classic—this is exactly how they were made for the Navy with 75% reprocessed wool, anchor buttons, hard warmer pockets and a quilted nylon lining. This is what winter outwear should be like. And if you like, you can always write your name inside on the tag—this has always been a tradition with pea coats, since they are so popular and if you went to a social gathering in winter time, you can’t tell one person’s coat from another. When women wear this coat, it is referred to as the Jackie O Jacket, because she was notorious for wearing one. Dave’s New York has a variety of sizes, from 34-54 and regular or tall. The Schott Wool Pea Coat is based on the classic military style and comes in black and navy, the original nautical color. They’re classic and tailored enough to wear with a suit but tough enough to keep you warm even in the harshest winter weather. And with quality like this, a Schott pea coat could last you a lifetime. Well, if you don’t lose it or confuse it with someone else’s coat.
