In Which I Complain about the Froufrou Naming of Colors

So I bought this jacket for my wife for her birthday. According to, the color of the coat I ordered is called "persimmon," and in the color sample "persimmon" looks quite red, does it not?

When I received the jacket today, I discovered that persimmon is actually orange. Now I have no idea if persimmons are orange, and I really could care less. But it would have been much clearer if the Weatherproof jacket company had actually named the color of the coat "orange."
