    Default Color comparison between 05 RT and 08 Ruby

    This is for you Arianne12 and anyone else interested!!! I got a 08 Ruby cp because the pics I've seen of the 09 Sanguine look too brown to me and to my surprise 08 Ruby is SUPER close to RT besides the leather being different. Here are some pics.

    Actually the Ruby leather is pretty thick, too just it has less shine to it and is not as soft...yet. I'm sure it will soften up once it's used.

    I agree that Ruby is not that shiny... i used lovinmybag leather shine lotion to rub on it and it's pretty much stay the same still.. may be i didn't apply enough
    about the softness, not quite sure, but i think my ruby is really really soft... well, i have no other bal bag to compare with... lol

    Wow! Thanks for posting comparison pics. So, they are pretty close, but RT is still my favorite shade of Bal. red so far. I'm interested in a Sanguine Bbag for next year.

    Yeah, RT is the best red Bal has ever made in my opinion! But Ruby's pretty close! So, what style Sanguine are you getting?

    I want a giant work, but I'll be satisfied with a giant city. I'll be doing this ---> for the Work! I still have to see the color IRL, but I want a Bal. in a shade of red.

    Oh, thanks QC!! Wow, it is quite close. And I am so glad I got the Ruby. The Sanguine is a nice colour but not the red I was looking for.

    I don't know what older Bal leather feels like cause all my bags are all 08. My Marine and Ruby have similar leather, quite smooth. I think both of them are pretty soft. The Marine seems to have a bit more shine than the Ruby which is pretty matte. My Sapphire clutch is the most distressed one.

    QC, you're right. My bags are getting softer and slouchier with use. I haven't used any of my other bags since I got the Bals!

    Well, I'm glad you got the Ruby then because it's so close to RT. Broken in Bbags are the BEST!!

    I can foresee the Ruby will become pretty collectible if Balenciaga doesn't make another similar one next year. Since its getting harder to get an RT in nearly new condition, I'd go for the Ruby when my wallet gives me permission.
