Note: Best description of this hue is vintage Air Force wool jacket olive/brown. Actual color shifts from a warmer toast brown to olive brown depending on quality of light. In natural sun, it can look more like a toast brown w/ olive undertone. In dimmer/cloudy light, the olive comes through more. If exact hue is important to you, free fabric sample available upon request.
