The last shot shows the subtle colour (color) difference between Sapphire and Indigo.
It's so hard to judge online! I've been looking at the Synapse in plum & indigo, I understand the dilemma!
I agonised for a few days over colours for my soon-to-arrive Smart Alec. I ordered it earlier this week along with a Western Flyer. The WF was only available in Crimson - the rest were on back order and I wanted the bag for a trip leaving on Tuesday. I figured an indigo Smart Alec might be a bit over the top when carried together, so I got steel. It's scheduled to arrive in Sunny Sydney on Monday.
I don't know if that's an open offer, but if it is, I'd love a color swatch of the "new" plum. I'd wanted a plum Brain bag when I bought mine 2 years ago, but ordered (according to Casey) just minutes after the last one was sold (ended up w/ navy instead). My wife has a plum cafe bag and I really like the color, so when the Synapse was put up for pre-order, I ordered one in plum. But this conversation has me wondering if her bag, which is 1 1/2 years old, is the "old" plum, and that has me reconsidering my choice. So if you could send a swatch, that would be great.
