choc will be more robust if this is your first- oak is a classic though -tough choice!! if you spray oak it will be fine but I always worry about getting rain spots and only use my oak in summer to be safe so I would say choc as a safer all round year option
I am pretty new to mulberry and only have a black bayswater....so far! Really really want an oak printed e/w bays but cant seem to find anywhere. Am visiting both SM and Bicester next month, are either outlets likely to have classic colours and which is likely to have "best" stock? Thanks for all replies so far!
