Love the color and love the shoe, but I have a pair in oxblood that is in a better size. These are a little long for me. If no one ends up buying them, no big deal.
To be truthful, I don't see much difference between the two. That's one reason I'm trying to sell the larger one. My oxblood PA's look closer to merlot than the oxblood Leeds and Carlyles I've seen. There's a lot of variation within all colors, as we learn. Oh, and my merlot PA's are bedbug-free.
If you're referring to the sharp or pinched creasing, a lot of the used AE saddles on eBay are made with corrected grain (or as AE calls it cobbler) leather. I've also seen it a lot on PAs.
