I'd go with charcoal to make it a bit different, but black is a reasonably classic colour for a pea-coat.

I prefer Black but they are harder to keep clean. They show every ball of fluff.

Black all the way. Charcoal looks like an old man trying to be hip. Navy is so out of style I could die. Black you have to keep clean, but it's slimming and fashionable. Good luck!

Seems like a great testimonial for navy.

Charcoal all the way. Black or navy scream "I have no imagination and simply follow everyone else". Charcoal hides dirt well and it's slimming and fashionable. (just yankin' your chain, SG ;-), though I do like my charcoal peacoat A LOT)

Get both if possible. If you have to choose one now I'd say charcoal just to stand out. Eventually you're going to have to get a black one though..

Black, but Charcoal is good also. Don't think too much about this. You're fine either way.
