Color is described as salt and pepper. Looks fairly modern, reasonably high gorge. Anybody have a view as to age of the coat?
ThanksView attachment 760

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.
