Well, THIS explains it (your pic alarmed me enough to write to him):

"We did change the shade of violety blue a bit (previous source discontinued it) I'll send you the new sample so that you can compare."

So it seems the Violety Blue sample I got almost two years ago is actually different from YOUR Violety Blue...

like i said the flash from the camera makes it look worse than it really is, maybe with some armor all on it, it will darken it enough to be exact!

Yeah, he was saying that the flash, camera, monitor could throw it off (and all that much I already KNEW), but - no offense - it REALLY looks off in that pic, and looks dramatically different from the sample I have...

Anyway, he's sending me some current samples and then I'll decide.

Damnit.

I believe this is a better pic, its darker and shows with the armor-all, like I said close but just a shade off, I can live with it!

Thanks for the pic, but yeah, it still looks a lot different from the sample I have (while the seats look identical in both pics, so I'm not convinced that it's just the flash or something throwing things off). I'm gonna have to see new samples from him now before I order...

Mystery solved. I just received the new samples last night (FAST!), and here's the old "Violety Blue" (small square), against the new (your) "Violety Blue":





Not to insult YOUR boots, but frankly, I'm so disappointed by the new "Violety Blue" that I'm kicking myself for not having ordered boots a year or two ago, and I'm considering just forgetting the whole thing. As far as I'm concerned, they're not even close.

Even the "Dark Blue" is disappointing, because the texture is totally different from the "Black" with which I'd two-tone it.

Whatever.
