The pirate coat is a well-known fashion icon which can be traced back to the 17th Century. The coat has a long, swashbuckling history that started with English privateers and other seafarers who wore oversized furnishings as armor against rough weather and enemy combatants alike. Initially designed with thick wool materials, they were also equipped with multiple deep pockets, buttons and sometimes adorned with coins or precious gems. As pirates became synonymous with wealth and fashion, the style of the pirate coat expanded to include heavier fabrics such as velvet or leather and ornamental details like decorative buckles. Today a pirate coat still carries hints of this rich legacy, its unique design allowing for both a ruggedness and elegance to remain in the wearer’s attire.

You've heard of Pirates of the Carribean, but pirates and piracy go back into ancient times. The first documented example of piracy was in the 14th century BC, when the Sea Peoples, a group of (possibly Phoenician) marine invaders, attack ships of Aegean and Mediterranean civilizations.

Pirates today are mostly thought of in terms of 18th century carribean and mediterranean sea-faring piracy. More recently, many can remember the modern-day pirates off the coast of Somalia, who would steal cargo and take ships' crew for ransom. Piracy today also occurs all over the world, including the Amazon river and the Strait of Malacca.
