I was expecting the "flannel-like" plaid look. This is not the case. The grey is much lighter than the picture implies. There are more swirls/designs within the plaid, which takes away from the masculinity. It still isn't a feminine design, but it's not what you would expect. I purchased a separate sheet set, so I'm only using the comforter, but the sheets did feel quite paper-like. The comforter is similar, with a more "plastic" feel to it. You get what you pay for with this one.
I am giving this product 3 stars because the quality of the comforter is very thin. I paid $***.** for this set and it looks great in my son's room. To complete this look I purchased a red, navy and white plaid bed shirt and white sheets to break up all the navy. This comforter set came with navy sheets, but not a bedshirt. The decorative pillows are gender neutral and are perfect for a masculine room. I washed it(front loaders), it wrinkles quickly so be prepared to take it out of the dryer immediately and place on the bed. Overall I am happy with the way his room looks, but feel I'll need to purchase a new comforter in a year.
