Navy Slop System

"Before we go further, lets discuss the meaning of "Sailors Slops" and put it into a historical perspective. The term "slops" is the old 16th century word for the fashion of wide, puffy trousers with a knee band that came into style in the late 16th century. They were popular with seamen because they were easy to move in. The knee bands would be left open, and by the early 17th century they cut it off.This was the birth of the seaman's trousers. They were called slops until the 17th century, when the English navy introduced the 'slop' system. Sailor's Clothing Sailor's Clothing ca 1700 - Hermitage Slops then became a term applied to all sea clothing sold by a Purser. So by the late 17th through the 18th centuries, if you said 'slops' everyone would think that you were talking about seaman's "fit outs" or sailors clothing in general, not a pair of trousers.

An interesting set of supposedly original sailor clothing comes to us via the Hermitage Musuem in Russia. Peter the Great spent a good amount of time visiting Dutch and English sea ports and naval yards. Upon his returned to Russia, he reinvigorated the Russian Navy modeling at least some of it on what he saw while abroad. The jacket lacks pockets, but has the split cuffs closed by 3 buttons. The cut of the jacket follows the body closely including the arms. There are a ton of buttons on the jacket that go from the throat to slighlty below the waist where the jacket then flairs. The buttons appear to be made like the ones from the Gunnister and Arnish Moor jackets, that is, the same material as the body of the coat over wooden discs."

As you can see sailor's needed someone to take care of the numours items in the centuries past as they do today. Our slop's carries a lot of thore similar items and a lot more.
