I had the eggplant, I actually prefer the color to the wine. It is more purply brown and more neutral for matching esp in the work environment. However the leather is really stiff so the texture of the wine is much better for you if you are into smooshy soft leather! I found the eggplant color gorgeous but the leather a bit too stiff.
Oh boy decisions decisions!! I dont know if to get the egglant mam in owlslab becasuse there are no returns. What if I dont love it!!! Like I did not like the yellow mam. Its just that waiting till june for the blk basketweave is killing me.
Eggplant and Wine, IMO are very different, not only in terms of color but leather texture as well. As HitchcockBlonde said, the Eggplant has leather that is stiffer. IME, the Wine is smooshy, buttery, and thick with an incomparably beautiful color that is just stunning. I haven't owned the Eggplant color but I can tell you without a doubt that the Wine is worth every penny!
