Yeah, I agree with all the comments and the rationale for going darker. Makes complete sense to me, but I do not think 1289 is the one. It is very ink blue in color and has a purplish tint indoors. It looks fine in direct sunlight, but I just looked at it again indoors and all I can see is purple. I'd be all over something a little darker, but you're right 1289 is very saturated.
