Can anyone with both the reg and purple variant of Ikebana 1 & 2 tell me which look better in person? Are the details as sharp on each? All of the pieces we have in one room are either graphite OG's or black and white prints which keeps me second guessing whether I should have went with the regs for these 2 although I absolutely love the purple.

Thanks

I’ve had both in hand (purple and green) I cannot vouch for any variation in the grey as I have not seen it. The purple and green are equally sharp and vivid only difference is the color. Purple is a more vibrant and light color than the shade of green chosen so the black stands out a little more on the purple but it’s only a slight difference. It’s barley noticeable really. I chose to keep the green set because I’m not a fan of purple or red personally. I think you could do a lot more with the purple as far as choosing a frame and mats as it is a bit more of a malleable color than green. My $.02

Given that most people I know won't be able to read that, I'd almost consider grabbing one...but I can't say I'm a fan of the band.

Happy the store will be open tomorrow - I've been in the market for a new hoodie for about a month now, been waiting for it to come back

We have a nice new one that will be added to the site soon, probably next week.
