A trend that is very annoying for the winter of 2009-2010 (and probably will continue for a while). Everywhere you turned to, you will see people wearing these coats. Douchebags are beginning to wear them. When fat people wear them, they look stupid with fail on top of it. Also, there are some cheap pea coats that can be purchased at Old Navy; however, these coats make you look like you're wearing a cheap Halloween costume of fail. Pea Coat, as defined by wikipedia, is an outer coat, generally of a navy-colored heavy wool, originally worn by sailors of European navies. Pea coats are characterized by broad lapels, double-breasted fronts, often large wooden or metal buttons, and vertical or slash pockets.
Back in the 2007, I love my pea coat. Now, I'm seeing a lot of fuck face people wearing them upset the living Jesus out of me.

Pea coats are a style of double breasted overcoat which have recently become associated with scenesters. Wearing one may garner scene cred. Traditionally navy blue.
At a concert I attended recently, pea coats and tight jean were the preferred attire.
