Maybe it just looks blue on my computer screen, but it don't look green
No I think it’s a combo of lighting/my shit photo skills. I’ll try to take a pic in natural light with them sometime on a different fit.
the pants look to be like a dark turquoise to me? but leans more blue than green for me too
They look that way to me too on screen. Just not in person. :/

Anyway, here’s an outfit repeat.

We could argue about what's the 'same' color or colour family all day, and we'd never be able to agree 100%. In Japan, for example, the 'go' traffic light and the sky are the same colour (青, 'ao', which is most often translated as 'blue', but it isn't really at all, it's a range of the visible spectrum that includes most of what English speakers define as blue and a lot of what we call green). And funnily enough it is also found in words that mean young or inexperienced (i.e. metaphors which would use 'green' in English).

The boundaries of colours are not just 'natural'. They change with individuals, culture and history - this piece on the ancient Greek conception of colour is one of my favourites: https://aeon.co/essays/can-we-hope-to-understand-how-the-greeks-saw-their-world

Point well taken.

Side note: this is also one of my favorite pieces. Cheers
