Naval Schott NYC Peacoat at Stuartslondon.com



Melton Wool Naval Pea Coat, military anchor buttons, hand warmer pockets, vented back and nylon quilted lining.



  • The wool is 75 percent reprocessed wool, 25 percent nylon and other fibers. The contents are interlocked and pressed together befor the wool is cut to ensure maximum protection against the elements.

  • The US Navy Pea Coat was adopted during the early 20th Century, from Britain’s Royal Navy Reefer Jacket. The Royal Navies 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 Navies 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.

  • Melton Wool Naval Pea Coat 740.

" I got the idea to search the internet for the name of the jacket and very easily found stuartslondon homepage. I ordered the jacket in the same size and colour of my old version (seven years old to be exact), paid with my creditcard and crossed my fingers. Just 4 days after I got the jacket and it was just perfect! Everything was just the same, also the quality!


Except that my girlfriend now enjoys to go for a walk with me again, rather than seeing me in my shabby old one.


Thank you very much Stuartslondon.com for this experience! It is nice that not everything changes in the world today. Knowing now where to get excellent service I am sure it wont take 7 seven until I will buy my next jacket. "

Jeffery-West






Mens shoes that are built to last




Jeffery-West Biography - 'Infamous English Shoes'



"Streets away from the pomposity normally associated with ultra-traditional
Northampton-produced footwear, this is the place to buy modern shoes and
accessories that nod, but don't scrape, to history."
Arena Magazine



It is often said that a man's shoes are the most important piece of his clothing.
If you are wearing the perfect outfit, the most luxurious bespoke pair of trousers,
even a crisp pair of jeans, if a man is
wearing an ugly pair of shoes then a whole look can be destroyed in an instance.



According to Bernhard Roetzel writing is his book: Gentleman: A Timeless fashion:
'Certainly, a good outfit and good shoes should go together -
for not even the best shoes can be guaranteed to rescue a questionable wardrobe.'
Step to the fore Mark Jeffery and Guy West, founders of Jeffery-West and purveyors
of seamlessly stylish, meticulously crafted Northampton-produced footwear.
A customer will only ever buy a poor make of shoes once, but to buy into Jeffery-West
is more than just purchasing a pair of shoes. It is like entering a gentlemen's club,
a place you will want to revisit time and time again.
The brand is a testament to the old adage that 'style never goes out of fashion'.
Expect a level of luxury and comfort more in keeping with the elegance of the
heyday of British shoemaking - the ultimate age of skill and innovation.
By using only the best of materials Jeffery-West has developed footwear with
traditional characteristics. But each and every style has its own signature 'twist' of originality
- hand burnished uppers, pointed lasts, diamond broguing, references to the George Cross,
influences form Gothic architecture and its infamous and much copied cleft heel.
Underpinning these is the Goodyear Welt (see Goodyear Welted Footwear) -
the best method for quality shoe construction yet devised.
With most footwear manufacturers farming out ubiquitous styles to be knocked up in the
Far East or opting for injection moulded plastic footwear and cemented sole units -
with cost durability and branding seemingly driving the footwear market in the
21st Century - it's refreshing indeed to see Jeffery-West's commitment to hand-finishing
over computer programming, ornamentation over blandness, and style with a huge degree
of substance. After all, it is well worth spending money on a decent pair of shoes.
At StuartsLondon.com we are very proud to present the Exclusive Black Line
Collection - we are an authorised retailer of Jeffery West .....enjoy the new
collection.
