I bought this comforter set for my son heading off to college. I was looking for something that would be soft to the touch since this would be his primary blanket. It is all that I hoped it would be. The suede feel is perfect. I was a little concerned that the blue might be too much of a baby blue (not manly enough for him) but it is more of a lighter slate blue. The brown helps to balance it out. I received a good "its OK mom" shoulder shrug which from my son translates into "I like it a lot but I'm not going to be seen getting excited about bedding". I have already washed the comforter as per their instructions and it washed great. Delivery was fast and I paid less through Overstock then other sites I was checking. I am a happy customer.
