Unpicking The Peacoat

From setting sail on the high seas to popping into your local – it’s fair to say that the humble Peacoat has had a storied pilgrimage en route to your wardrobe.

Born into the Dutch Navy during the 1800’s, the Peacoat was made of durable, coarse wool. When coupled with its design - double breasted and high collared– the Peacoat was destined to become a sailor's best friend: warm, durable, and effective against the rain and sea spray.

Fast forward a hundred years or so and the Peacoat is still one of the first pieces you reach for when the mercury starts to drop. Its blend of functionality and style make it the perfect companion. Warmth and protection from the elements are built into 
its very DNA.

We take a look at the details that make this such a special garment.

1. Oversized lapels make the perfect barrier from the wind and rain.

2. The Peacoat is cut to cover suit jackets and sports coats and is the ultimate wardrobe ally thanks to its versatility.

3. Twin-welted drop-in pockets are perfectly placed to the front and lined in brushed cotton for comfort and warmth.

4. Real-horn, British-made buttons.

5. Button adjustable back belt to accommodate a neater silhouette.

6. Intricate twin-needle topstitch detail.

7. Internally, you’ll find two deep running pockets secured by RIRI zippers, with enough space to safely stash a tablet or paperback novel.

8. Exclusive 30oz Melton wool, made just 20 minutes from our Manchester factory and woven so tightly that it’s windproof and shower resistant.

The Private White V.C. Peacoat is a testament to the craftsmanship of our factory, the modern design we love to inject into true classics, and a firm nod to its iconic success in years gone by.

All of which makes it the perfect coat for winter walks and alfresco adventures.
