The actual color of the jacket is probably a brown-green mix, and the type of light you’re standing in affects how you see the color. The very definition of color is the way visible light reflects off different surfaces, so when the light is different, the color can change. Maybe you’ve noticed how when walking in from bright daylight to a darker room the people inside look strangely green with purple lips for a few minutes? Or how you can looked washed out or sallow under flourescent lights at work and school? It’s the same thing.
Some surfaces demonstrate light change more dramatically than others. For example, my grandparents’ car looks silver in their garage, steel blue in the sun, and pale green on overcast days. And my eyes go from blue to grey to green depending on the light and what I’m wearing. So it’s probably that the particular color of this jacket is very sensitive to differences in light. The differences between daylight, dim light, fluorescent light, incandescent light, etc can be pretty profound, so that explains why it can look like a completely different jacket depending on where you’re looking at it.posted over 6 years ago

I have a throw blanket just like this. I originally thought it was green and was very impressed my boyfriend would actually buy something not brown or tan. But seeing it in a different light I realized it’s actually brown…and all the furniture in the living room is still of the brown/beige shade lolposted over 6 years ago
