Replica US Penitentiary Alcatraz black inmate peacoat.

Inmate Pea Coat - USP Alcatraz


Regular price $59.95

USP Alcatraz was designed for the most dangerous wards of the federal prison system. Prison regulations were rigidly enforced, and violations swiftly punished.

Along with his standard uniform, an Alcatraz convict could add a cap, jacket, or coat while in the Recreation Yard or performing assignments outdoors. Wool coats issued to convicts in the early years were replaced by war surplus pea coats as they wore out. Convicts were wearing pea coats exclusively by 1962.
