    It's hard to tell the color on my screen, but it certainly is unique. Is it too far out of the norm to remain elegant?

    Thanks

    Assuming it is black or midnight blue, that is a great choice if it fits you. Don't button the bottom button.

    I would bet that it's black, but the flash/light is throwing the color off. The cut and model are certainly classic. It appears to be out of balance, but I assume that's just the way someone put it on the dummy.

    I love getting up at 6:30 on the east coast to find that J is already posting from Seattle, where it is 3 hours earlier. It happens more than you think.

    Yeah I'd like to think it's black, but the seller lists it as "green blue." He's German, so who knows. Would Brioni have made a turquoise tux?

    Brioni has made a lot of wierd $#!+ over the years. Some of the pictures in their little vanity book are heart-stoppingly ugly. So, while I don't know specifically, it's a distinct possibility.

    Looks almost purple on my monitor.

    I'd ask the seller for some better pics or a better description of the colour.

    I like the cut a lot though!

    Extremely helpful seller [​IMG]

    I will give him credit for speed and, um, directness. The more I think about it, the more sure I am that in a couple of years I'll be happy I didn't pull the trigger. Oddly enough, the brown RLPL A Harris was selling a few months back would be more flexible. Any other 40S, the auction is here.

    I saw a brown Brioni dinner jacket that I thought of buying, however they only had a 38.

    What kind of a madman is awake at 6:30?

    I´m often very early (or very late), because I´m a busdriver.
