    Bloomingdale had them online forever, guess that shade of green was a hard sale

    Choice of buttons is off. It would look pretty nice with brown horn buttons. Easy enough to have them swapped though.

    Yep - was thinking the same. Pretty good price on that baby, and even nicer that the seller seems willing to just do a 1 for 1 swap for a different item.

    you guys must have better imagination than I do, it still looks hard to pair even with the button swap (does sound better though)

    This is something you wear with a knit and jeans/cords. I wouldn't wear with a jacket underneath.

    Good eye for a deal. A couple of other positives for it: was made x for Epaulet, has totally unfinished buttons on the sleeve (for proper adjustment), a proper business 30 length for regular or almost tall folks like myself, in an SF preferred 3r2, proper side adjusters (sans belt loops), and slightly meaty cuffs.

    For whom it fits, I say it looks like a solid buy.

    Thanks everyone - hopefully it will lead to some sales. B&S has so many legit items it's hard to list at once. I'll try to get a list up weekly.
