    Navy to make pea coat optional outerwear

    No word on when sailors can start calling in sick or take rating exams online from home.


    In August, the Navy said it would make the wool double-breasted coat optional in sailors’ seabags starting in 2018 and replace the maritime wardrobe staple with a synthetic black cold weather parka. Sailors can still wear the peacoat after the transition but the uniform shift and its potential effect on U.S. manufacturers have raised concerns with lawmakers.

    While Sterlingware is the current manufacturer, the peacoat has been a naval staple for hundreds of years and popularized by the U.K. Royal Navy, military uniform historian Jennifer Daley told USNI News last month.
    The first mention of the garment was found in 1731 Royal Navy uniform manual and was adopted by the U.S. Navy which is still rooted in British naval tradition.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    My Dad is 82 and one of my sisters is 48 that served in the Navy, Both still have and wear their peacoats.
    All you gotta do to get a argument started is say, Look at them pier queers in those new uniforms.
    its just like lighting a rocket.
