Stay snug in style with reefer jackets

This #FashionFriday, we’re upping the style game this Autumn and keeping warm in reefer jackets. Reefer jackets (or Pea Coats) were originally worn by ‘reefers’ in the British Navy. These thick wool jackets kept the British Navy extremely warm, whilst still allowing for movement and comfort.

Over time, this sophisticated jacket has developed into one of the most popular styles among both men and women. Offering military chic, this classic design is a staple in most winter wardrobes.

Here at John Douglas Menswear, we currently have a wide range of reefer jackets in store. Keep reading this #FashionFriday to take a look at some of our favourites.

Pretty Green:


First up is this stunning ‘Wool Double Breasted Peacoat’ from Pretty Green in the colour navy. This truly unique jacket is incredibly detailed. From buttoned epaulettes, branded military style trims and a woven military badge, everything about it oozes military chic.

Ted Baker:


Second, we adore this classic wool peacoat from Ted Baker. One of the most versatile pieces of the season, this navy blue jacket looks fantastic on anyone. Worn alone or with a scarf such as this tartan from Barbour, this Ted Baker reefer jacket gives off effortless cool. From the shower resistant, rich Italian fabric, to the bold lining, this coat is simply perfect for autumn.

Remus Uomo:

For something a little more formal, this ‘Tapered Fit Wool-Rich Overcoat’ is ideal, and looks great paired with this Camel Active scarf. With concealed, single-breasted buttons and a longer-line length; this charcoal jacket is great for work or smart occasions. And look at that lining!


That’s just a small selection of our reefer jackets/peacoats at John Douglas Menswear. As you can see, this timeless style is incredibly versatile and we’re sure we can find something to suit everyone.
