The photographs on the site are frequently a little lighter or darker than in person. You can be sure that the VBC 100s light gray and the classic light gray are different. Without seeing them all back to back in person you won't know just how different, but I can vouchsafe that all of the grays seen on the site are slightly different from one another. I own many. Interestingly, the light gray classic actually looks very true to life in the color seen in the photos. Does that help? I agree that the classic is versatile - nice sweet spot. It's more of an elephant gray. Not a darker mid gray, but not as light as the VBC light grays.
