matching aluminum... finish color choices

So, I'm looking at some hardware and would like to stay with the aluminum finish. But some items I'm considering only have stainless steel and/or nickle. Which do you think is closer in color? I know that the color can be different even within these finishes due to alloy material mixes but, I'm asking *in general*.

a "brushed" finish will probably do best...nothing will be exact though as you know. Is it possible to take a sample of what you are trying to match with you to a store and compare? I do this with things occasionally, even if I am buying on-line, just to get a "real-world" comparison. Just a few thoughts.
