Of all nautical clothing, the pea coat is without a doubt the gold standard,
Later, the qaba, worn by pirates, set a course toward Europe, where sailors started to adopt and adapt it as early as the 15th century. Beginning in the 18th century, the pea coat took its distinctive shape: short with a wide collar, bias pockets at the hips, and a crossed buttoning based on buttons decorated with an anchor. There was a good reason for this system: it allowed the coat to be closed in both directions, according to the direction of the wind. The colors became dark, most often navy blue or black.
The eternal incarnation of adventure and travel...
In any case, the pea coat is a functional garment, perfect for facing winter chills, rain or salty squalls on the high seas.
