    Hey all!

    Long time reader, first time poster!

    I have a question for everyone here, I have a choice between two sport coats. I plan on wearing them with jeans and dress pants.

    or

    Both in the dark colours.

    I'm just wondering which would be better quality between italian and english wool and also, what other differences between them can I not see (since I have somewhat of an untrained eye)

    Thanks everybody!

    The first one is a bit too short for my taste. You said it also came in a darker colour? Going dark grey or navy will be more versatile than mid gray. From what I can see the second is better. It also has a ticket pocket and appears to have slightly wider lapels which I prefer.

    I doubt there is much difference in the wool between these two jackets.
