I am about to get an overcoat from one of the many clearance sales in the next few weeks, and trying to decide on the color. I am personally stuck between black and charcoal grey, as I think those look best for this kind of coat and go with the most things. Which color do you have and why? As an aside, is there a reason to choose flap pockets over slit on this kind of coat? Most I see are made with flap, which seems odd to me, as I'll certainly want to put my hands in the pockets- and slit pockets make that a lot easier/looks better, IMO.
