Pull is a jet observable that is sensitive to color flow between dipoles. It has seen wide use for discrimination of particles with similar decay topologies but carrying different color representations and has been measured on W bosons from top quark decays by the D0 and ATLAS experiments. In this paper, we present the first theoretical predictions of pull, focusing on a color-singlet decaying in two jets. The pull angle observable is particularly sensitive to color flow, but is not infrared and collinear safe and so cannot be calculated in fixed-order perturbation theory. Nevertheless, all-orders resummation renders its distribution finite, a property referred to as Sudakov safety. In our prediction of the pull angle, we also include an estimation of the effects from hadronization and directly compare our results to simulation and experimental data.
