I was looking all over the malls and the internet for a quilt set for my son, but everything i found was too frilly or feminine. Just when I thought I would have to give up and settle for a comforter set, I found this quilt. The red/black colors are exactly as pictured and the quality of the quilt and shams is super. I took another reviewer's advice and bought the black 15" dust ruffle and they look great together. Very happy with my purchase.
