Now, if the choice were between burgandy and dark brown, I think it would be more of a toss-up.
+1 on this note.
Caveat...I strongly prefer almost any color brown for casual wear (Jeans , Khakis). It might just be me but Burgundy has more of a formal feel to it that lends itself to versatilty in the work place.
In other words...all browns not created equal. Dark brown very versatile. I don't like Burgundy as much the more casual you get.
