Thanks GG. Fingers crossed someone has both! Also I wonder if the box is less dark or darker than swift? Also is there a bluer undertone in ardoise than in graphite?

Not both in swift, but here is graphite in epsom next to ardoise in swift. I was surprised when I put both pieces together how close the colors are!

Great pic Rana!
I am very surprised that Ardoise and Graphite look so similar. I have a Lindy exactly like that and I have a Dogon Combined in Graphite/BJ bi-color, and the Graphite looks much darker.

Ardoise in swift has more of a blue undertone to it. I don't have anything in graphite but my bag is ardoise swift and when I looked at it against the leather swatches in the boutique, definitely bluer.

The leather makes a big difference - graphite in Clemence has, at least in my view, quite strong beige/mushroom undertones, that don't come out at all in Epsom.

Ardoise is more blue/grey to me...graphite is more "light" black...or medium charcoal...

Ardoise is bluer than graphite. I think of Graphite as charcoal grey and Ardoise as steel grey.

I second that Ardoise has blueish undertones. I love that it can even appear blue in the right surroundings.
Ardoise box.

30cm Birkin in Graphite Boxcalf

Agree with SCL on both descriptions of Boxcalf as 'light' black, and Ardoise was blue-ish grey. :yes:
