I am wondering what would be an accurate word for the color of the prison uniform in the screenshot below, from a movie (Batman Begins).

The audio description of the color sounds to me like

Bruce and his cellmate, in worn petroblue uniforms, step outside into a grey grim yard.

Is petroblue a word? Google doesn't bear it out. If I misheard it, what could the color be? The audio excerpt can be found here (uploaded to Clyp, an easy audio sharing site).

Sounded like "petrol blue" taking into account the british accent, which I looked up and is actually a term used in GB https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/petrol_blue
