    Color is described as salt and pepper. Looks fairly modern, reasonably high gorge. Anybody have a view as to age of the coat?

    I don't know, the angle of the gorge, the size of the lapels and the buttoning don't look all that recent to me. Also, it looks like it could be a suit coat.

    Gorge looks a bit low...I'd place it somewhere between 1992 and 1996.

    Lower gorge, plus a little older style of buttoning coupled with the lapel which has very little roll.

    Also, the color, though that might not be an accurate indicator.

    Although it may be a bit older it looks like a handsome jacket.

    If you want a Brioni and can get it between $100 and 160, go for it.

    Thanks guys for all the input, it is much appreciated.. The jacket is in fact pretty cheap @ <$150 but I think I'll save up for something a bit more current.
