Finally got an Alfred! But what color is it?

  1. So many of you know I've wanted an Alfred for a while now. The timing just wasn't right for me when they started appearing at Off 5ths and sure enough, they disappeared by the time I was able to buy one. Thanks to several :heart:beautiful ladies:heart: on this forum, I was alerted to one that appeared on eBay last week. I sealed the deal and it arrived yesterday. It's everything I hoped & dreamed of!! :girlsigh:

    But here's my question... The seller said it was the Bordeaux color in her listing, but I'm really thinking it's actually Slate. Do any of you know for sure? I tried to take pictures of it in different lights. Sometimes it looks black and sometimes it looks like a deep chocolate brown. It doesn't ever look Bordeaux to me though. I'm just curious because regardless of what the color is, I'm soooooo in love!! :love::love:

    Thanks so much Forenfinal for confirming the color! :flowers: I'm so happy it's the Slate color after all. That's the color I wanted most other than the virtually-impossible-to-get Teal color!
