Planning to buy it pre-loved. I see that almost everyone has the blue oblique and I know its easier to match but what do we think of the burgundy one?! I am torn because the burgundy is gorgeous but blue is the safer choice.
Sounds like you like the burgundy more. Don't get something just because it's more popular. The Oblique men's Saddle is very popular (arguably the most popular although I have no data to back it up), but I ended up getting two men's Saddles that are both in leather because I personally like the leather more.
