Hahaha! Just kidding! :) But if you look at the picture closely, the color of a camel´s skin should be in a shade of grayish brown, no?
According to Wiki ,
¨Camel is a color that resembles the color of the hair of a camel and the first recorded use of camel as a color name in English was in 1916. Based on fashion trivia, camel is the color of a specific type of overcoat known as a polo coat or camel-hair coat. In a 1951 Collier´s magazine fashion article, it is stated that camel colored polo coats are proper to wear in the summer, in the country and in the southern part of the US, but navy blue overcoats are proper to wear in the city and in autumn, winter, and spring. ¨
Whoa, right now it´s the current autumn color trend worldwide! Fashion has always been wacky, no?
Here´s the closest camel shade and that I´ve found compared to what´s shown in Wiki:
So it´s like a shade of very light brown or tan but not quite like it and is definitely not the color of my new shoes:
Based on the color chart, the color of this pair could be between rust, mahogany or sinopia (whatever that is). Since we really are not talking about my shoes´ color, then let´s forget about it, okies? ;)
One thing that´s worth sharing with you though is that I bought this pair really cheap. As in dirt cheap 3 euros for a classic pair of real leather loafers in perfect condition.
Oh, ha! Glad that I dropped by at my one and only neighborhood thrift shop before buying bread in the bakery. * Silly grin, here. * One more parting shot coz I can´t help but really gloat on how cheap this pair is on this side of world. ;)
Camel colored or not, what have you thrifted these past few days? ;)
Have a happy week ahead!
