    As I reach my mid twenties I am transitioning more into a formal style. Never purchased or owned an overcoat before...looked at several different models in Zara and on Yoox....these 2 came to my mind...one is single breasted, the other is double. Also One is Navy and the other grey...what is your opinion on each in terms or price/quality/versatility? I will mostly be wearing this with some dark wash jeans or chinos.

    Should've waited at least a few hours before purchase. The one you did buy looks rather formal for a young man (mainly due to the double-breasted), enough that it's incompatible with jeans. Also, between the extra material and the flannel, it might run warmer than wanted. That aside, it appears to be well-made and tasteful. The Zara one has a more youthful look, but anything from there is unlikely to be of high quality and it has too much synthetic material.

    the zara one is 80% wool, the other one is 100%..i bought the other at jsut above 200 so it wasnt a huge investment. the quality on the Yoox one is amazing ! and it looks and fits perfect...but you are right, should be worn with more formal attire
