ODE TO A SWEATER: In a (not puce) color

I wasn't sure when I found this sweater at a thrift shop.  But, J. Crew for $4.29?  Okay!  However, I have been thrilled with all of the things this sweater works with.  I just can't figure out what color to call it...

One friend (shout out Julaina!) and I decided we would call it "Breast-Fed Baby Poop" color, but as appealing as that name is, we realized that wouldn't quite cut it.  We thought the name "puce" sounded perfect, but according to the internet, the actual color of puce is a slightly purplish red, so that's a no go.  So, I'm going with dark mustard.

Here are some options for this color.  Consider my mind... blown.

With mint floral:

With floral and stripes with a pop of maroon:
