Is this overcoat versatile?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NWT-Ermenegildo-Zegna-46-36-C-Cashmere-Overcoat-Topcoat-/160705347640?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item256ac90038

 

I have a 10% discount code on eBay, and thinking about using it toward this item... but what do you guys think about this coat? Is brown color good to go? or should I buy navy or charcoal?

While I think that brown is versatile - you may hear that navy or charcoal are a better choice for a first coat (though you did not specify whether that was the case).

I think the question was more oriented towards context. Work environment, typical attire and whatnot. Extremely conservative office where brown shoes would look out of place, or tech startup where wearing a polo gets you quizzical looks?

I think it's a very versatile coat, personally. I would wear it in all but the most formal environments, and in any less formal environment where a traditional wool overcoat wouldn't look stupidly out of place. But if you worked in a British investment bank, you might have some issues.

Good question - both ability to match other colors and ability to match situations? How about your definition?
