Jackets exist since 19th century. Firstly they were seamen’s clothes in Great Britain and in the USA. Gradually, these coats became a part of wardrobe of the civils. Customers like them for their versatility and comfort. Besides, many people like their original look: jackets are double-breasted and have buttons with engraved anchors.
