Trial and error. Ride a friend's bike, ride the shop mechanics bike, ride a bike with a saddle you like. Find one you like and pull the trigger.

FWIW, I may stray and buy a fancy saddle every few years but I always come back to my Brooks Pro. Hard to break in, and lengthy, but in the long run I think you'll find a Brooks is hard to beat. And, they have a number of different styles for different folks. Brooks aren't for everyone though; as evidence in the previous post. They just don't feel comfortable for some folks.

I am taking a liking to the new Brooks C17 I bought last year though. Non-leather and is on my fixed gear bike. Looks cool and is comfy too.
