About Army Surplus Coats
A coat that was initially worn by sailors of the American and European navies is the pea coat. The pea coat is typically navy in colour and made of heavy wool. Other features of the pea coat include wide lapels, fronts that are double-breasted, navy anchor buttons that are large and made of wood or metal and vertical or slash pockets.
Similar to the pea coat is the black dress jacket with silver buttons exhibiting an eagle with its wings spread. Between the wings is an anchor bounded by stars. It is also double-breasted in a dark blue/black colour with three pockets and sleeves that reach to the fingertips. You can also visit http://www.rddusa.com/ for different military clothing.
Another army surplus coat is the War wool coat. This is a full-length coat made of 100% wool. Armies worldwide wore coats like this that were very warm while protecting their countries. Each coat has a colour or feature that is unique to its country. The War wool coat comes in a heather grey/ blue.
The cuff for the arm is very long to offer for additional warmth. Up the back is a 20-inch pleat that buttons from top to bottom. The reason why this pleat is so long is wearing this coat while being mounted on a horse.
