comparison pics of Black and steel

  1. Does anyone have any? I did a search but couldn't find any. I am trying to decide on a money wallet, I'm thinking either steel or black, but haven't actually seen the steel IRL.

    If anyone could help out, I'd really appreciate it!

    Thanks!
     
  2. no one? :crybaby:
     
  3. I'd love to post the pictures up for you right now, but I need to go home after work and take them first! =) However, as fair warning, the real color of the plomb is VERY hard to capture and I'll be taking pics of my 2 cities. I'll try though!
     
  4. Thank you very much! How would you describe plomb since you say that its hard to capture?
     
  5. polos, there are lots of photos. You can find them in the search feature: Here are some links:

    Geez, you know, these were only the threads comparing black to plomb! We're not even talking about the amount of threads comparing Anthra to Plomb! I think I'm going to merge a lot of these threads and put them in the reference section for you guys.
     
  6. Thank you! I did try searching for 'plomb' but didn't find....wait I think maybe I searched for steel. Either way, thanks!
     
  7. Polos26, I took the pictures for you last night. However, I can't find my card adapter to upload the pics onto my laptop. As soon as I find it, I'll post the pictures for you. As for a description of the color, I'd say it's a VERY dark gray color, the seams on my city are blue tinted, so dark gray with a blue tint. In some lighting, it's almost black, in others, it's almost gunmetal with a bit of a sheen to it. It's very beautiful and more unique than black!

    As lordguinny said, there are quite a few threads comparing the various colors, so you may want to look at them in the meantime.
     
  8. I did look at them, i'm still on the fence. Everyone says great things about plomb, but in the pictures it looks like a faded black, at least next to the black it looks that way.

    Withouth having seen one IRL I don't know what to do :confused1:
     
  9. Aww girl, I'm sorry! There's no way you can see the bag IRL? Can you have one sent to you on consignment? I sometimes do that with bags that I have no access to locally or just don't have the time to head down to the store. The plomb is a really beautiful color, IMO. It isn't so much a faded black...as it is just a really dark grey/blue combo.
