Black or Newmarket? On a Brown Roan

So I can't quite decide.
I purchased a new saddle a week ago and I like the color.. but I'm so indecisive. I am thinking about having it dyed black (professionally).
I need to figure this out before I purchase her new bridle/breast collar and things.
Opinions are appreciated to help make up my mind.
Here is a photo of it on her.

I've never liked the way black dye wears. It does not get the patina that brown does. If you were to dye it any color, maybe do a dark reddish brown (havana). It looks just fine as it is, though.

Its just hard to find tack in this color!
Having to go the custom route.
