Clue for KHAKI
« on: November 07, 2014, 10:35:54 AM »
I'm considering cluing KHAKI as "Tan in a dusty shade" or "Tan of a dusty shade."
Valid?
Thanks,
Adam

Hey, fella, I don't like your khaki attitude! Now that I've gotten that horrible pun out of the way, I will point out that colors are of a certain shade, not in a certain shade, but "Tan of a dusty shade" sounds awkward. I sugget using "Dusty shade of tan" or perhaps just "Dusty tan."

"Dusty tan" might suffice, but I was thinking to phrase it in such as way as to cause a possible mis-interpretation of "tan" (as in the color) for the verb "tan."

I'll chime in with "Navy hue" or "Uniform tan" (U.S. Navy still wears khaki uniforms) - both of those should get some solvers off the track.
