Initially issued to the naval forces of post-war Germany, this peacoat retains the classic "pea coat" design, ensuring you stay in vogue while paying homage to a rich historical legacy.

The East German Volksmarine, or People's Navy, was the naval force of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) from its formation shortly after World War II until the dissolution of the country in 1990. Established in 1956, it was part of the National People's Army (Nationale Volksarmee, NVA), and its primary mission was to secure the Baltic Sea coastline, operating under the strategic directives of the Warsaw Pact during the Cold War.

The Volksmarine was a significant player in the Baltic Sea, known for its diesel-electric submarines, small but effective fleet of frigates, and various coastal defense crafts. As the Cold War tensions thawed and Germany moved towards reunification, the Volksmarine was disbanded, with its assets and personnel being integrated into the Navy of the reunified Federal Republic of Germany, marking the end of a distinctive era in naval history.
