the comforter set is exactly as pictured. Very lovely, in a masculine style with the herringbone woven top and wood buttons. Oversized to fit my Queen mattress. I would recommend it to a friend with one caveat: the woven polyester top snags easily. (not pet friendly)
This is a beautiful set and the quality is outstanding. I wish I could keep it. But unlike the picture the design is rather bold - it won't mix with what I already have so I'm sending it back. I wish the picture truly showed the design and colors.
The colors and pattern of the comforter are suitable for males or females, the quality seems adequate. The bedskirt is unremarkable. I was concerned that it was too flimsy, but once ironed and on the bed what does it have to endure? It should be okay. The pillow shams are just about useless. I have searched and could not find supplemental Euro Shams that make a statement on the bed so I used a cream colored pillow from another store. If you are searching for a suitable guest comforter or bedding that is dual-gender this will work fine.
