Are you as good a shopper as Mitt Romney? Honestly, probably not. As the New York Times reports, Mitt bought his Met Gala tux (why he was invited is a question for another time, another post) on Amazon. Yes, Amazon. And at a discount so steep, he couldn’t help but show it off on the red carpet last night, despite his wife requesting that he keep his bargain-bin shopping habits to himself. And you know what’s even better news? It was Brioni! Brioni is on Amazon! So in honor of Mitt’s shopping ingenuity, we’ve pulled some of Amazon’s best Brioni looks below.

Brioni Black Tuxedo
$1,999, Amazon

Here, a black tux very much like Mitt’s, with peak lapels. This one’s a size 38, but if you dig around here, you can find a variety of sizes.

Brioni Dark Blue Lustrous Silk Tuxedo Jacket
$1,320, Amazon

They’ve also got some blue options, if that’s more your thing.

Brioni Men’s Solid Woven Heathered Silk Necktie
$125, Amazon

They’ve also got silk ties. This one is heather gray.

Brioni Purple Silk Tie
$129, Amazon

This purple one is great for the “fun dad.”

Herringbone Pattern Woven Silk Necktie Gold
$125, Amazon

Or how about some gold herringbone?

Multi-Color Paisley Print Tie
$110, Amazon

I just have a gut feeling that paisley is going to make a big comeback soon. It’s necktie maximalism.

Green Silk Tie
$129, Amazon

Perfect for summer.
