Dormer siding dilemma

In the middle of getting our roof replaced. Contractor removed dormer siding. Said it would be no problem to match new dormer siding to the rest of the house but now says the siding is aluminum that he can't exactly match. Not surprising since it's probably 40 years old. He suggested what he considers a close match in vinyl, but close isn't good enough for me if the difference is detectable. He also suggested a cedar shake or scallop shingle. I'm not a fan of the scallop look, not sure about shingle. An architect friend suggested vertical white siding. Open to other suggestions. What's the best thing to do? Residing the whole house is not in the budget.
