The USN Peacoat is the perfect example of military functionality seamlessly working its way into the modern closet. But with so many examples out there and just as many people coming to the same realization – how can you show you know what’s up while sticking out from the crowd? Buzz Rickson’s United Carr label holds the key. A pea coat-shaped key, to be exact.
This 26 oz. Melton Wool Peacoat is heavily influenced by the WWII USN Peacoat’s design with its double-breasted 10 anchor-button front, vertical chest pockets, and of course luscious corduroy pocket lining. But it’s also taken enough liberties to stand on its own merit too, most notably with its charcoal grey color and slimmer, updated fit. Not only does the gray make the coat feel more textured and detailed, but the modern cut also won’t just complement you better, it’ll keep you warmer too.
Made in Japan, and available from Hinoya for $346
