Sorry for the VERY bad picture, I hope the detail is clear enough. I was home alone, and the bathroom mirror is REALLY dirty (my fault!). Anyway, it's my first pair of sidepanels, I got the cords for 50 cents but they were a bit too small, so I split the sides and used 2 more pairs of 50cent cords I had already cut up. THe pants are a dark brown, and the sidepanels are deep purple and a goldenish brown color. I was afraid that the colr would be off, but it's pretty good looking, I think. hehe, you can also see my 50cent green surf print shirt, I never match!!!!
