Grey? Blue? Purple? It can look different, depending on the context. Let's talk about color perception, color temperature, and the history of laundry.

Funny cuz I use color temperature in my art, I use bluish or cool colors for usually dark shaded areas while I use yellowish or warm colors for light areas

Since the reply feature isn't working right now, I'll post a reply to Tom's post this way: you may think, it's a pointless debate, as regional spellings are fine when they can be understood no matter which one you use, but i'd argue it's not pointless, because it is a harmless, enjoyable activity for linguistic prescriptivists, and that is an inherently good thing (providing happiness to people) In conclusion, Heck you if you say Color, it's Colour!!!

So, according to that colour sensor... your hoodie isn't gray. Or at least not exclusively. According to the manifacturer of the paint that was referenced by the sensor's software, your hoodie is... "[a] deep purple [that] has a generous gray undertone suggestive of storm clouds on a distant horizon."

When you changed the lighting at 3:00 it turned pink, not yellow. Also, I would like a color calibrator like that. What is it called and how much are they? Google is being unhelpful.

This reminds me of an ongoing argument my uncle and I had over whether the house across the street from where we used to live was blue or gray. It was light blue. Every time I go back there, it's still the color I remember it. I don't care what my uncle says; it was blue.

Stop right there Mr Tom, the garment you're wearing is comfortable so there's no need to ask for others opinions regarding it. You do you. 😃

I'm surprised there's no mention of the white+gold/blue+black dress, because the colour perception depends on what type of light your brain thinks it has and therefore subtracts out.

I watched this video on the 21/4/21 at 5.20 am [no colon, since YT'll think I'm giving a timestamp] in Uruguay, which is during autumn/fall on my phone with the "Blue light filter" set on... So imagine having to turn it off so Tom doesn't sound as if he's gone loopy.
