Plum I think is much darker than the claret misty
here you go
Both are in the burgundy family. Plum is darker. You will get more mottling with plum museum than you will with claret misty - but that's more because of museum vs. misty. I have both colors and like them.
I feel like I like the plum more.
Plum is the best by far..
I have two pairs in plumb and it's very elegant and versatile.
And to further confuse you misty feels more living, tight and polishes well than museum (deep). But that's just my feeling. In plum or any non-black color I'd choose museum cause its perfectly mottled. However in black, misty any day over all other calf leathers including museum and oxford calf just because misty feels more luxurious and better quality somehow.
Awesome man. Many thanks for sharing! Great
I actually seen the black museum calf and really liked how it looked in sunlight and changed in different lighting. I believe it's easier to appreciate in real life, pictures don't have the same effect. Can't really tell in black misty.
Black Museum Calf looks washed out to me. I have a pair in Black Misty and it looks more rich. Misty Black has a bit of "plastic shine" but in a good way, it's like giving a black a bit of accent.
Yeah, I would never do Black Museum again.
In London today wore these
Plums? These look wonderful!
Believe so Ju. Thank you.
How would you go about. Polishing plum museum. I hear a lot of different things. Some say neutral cream and john lobb says claret. I just don't want to lose the museum effect.
I use neutral with all mottled finishes to be safe. Even with dark brown misty.
