Antiquated System

A colorway name was submitted by tampnp for our Colorway Name Contest.  After the name was suggested, we voted and then my job was to come up with a colorway based on just the name or the name and a brief description.  Great fun!

Contestant Description:  I was having a Twitter conversation with Tina one night, and at one point I asked if there was a way to use two discount codes on one order.  She said, "No.  Sorry Hon.  We have an antiquated system here."  I thought, "What a great name for a colorway!!"  So when this contest came along, I couldn't wait to submit the name.  I have an idea in my head, but I want to see what Tina does with it.

deprayvedDyer:  All I could think of in relationship to this colorway was to be crazy and out of the box.  Break the mold, if you will.  Which is what I did.  There are colors on one side that aren't on the other.  They are squiggled on and because of that no two will be the same.  They will be really similar but not exact.
