WTAPS has many items which are a color known as olive drab.
The reasoning behind this, comes from the brand's characteristic and identity of having designs derived from military in the standard line up.
But, just because it is called olive drab, does not mean they are all the same color.
When material changes, the color differs. Even in what is called the same color of olive drab.
I truly realize this when doing the twice a year catalog shoot.
Due to the complexity of the color known as olive drab, I almost get dizzy while doing color adjustments over and over again saying too saturated, not saturated enough, too dark, and too bright with a with a crew of three people; the print company representative, the art director, and myself.
With all that said and done, most of my personal winter outerwear is olive drab.
After all, I really like the characteristic of the color.
