I know my posts on this topic are becoming repetitive and my opinion is likely highly idiosyncratic, but - to my eye - most modern MB pens are quite garish and oftentimes ostentatiously so, this one included. I'll stick to MB vintage and the 149 series.
I the case of this pen I agree.
Most leather products owned by men are either black or brown in colour. I would never consider buying a wallet, shows or belt in red leather. Looking at this pen I think the same is true for pens. I think it would have been a far classier pen if it were black or brown.
