Looking for a saddle similar to the WTB Devo ...

I recently got my hands on a WTB Devo saddle and it has kind of ruined all of my other saddles for me - I love the flat profile and it supports my sits bones perfectly. But here's the problem - I'm picky about the aesthetics of my daily commuter and would like a saddle just like the WTB Devo, but a little "classier" looking. I realize "classy" is an extremely subjective term, so let me try to clarify - it's an old British 3-speed frame, and I'd like something that wouldn't look completely out of place (all the saddles I find that are similar to the Devo are in neon colors or have huge logos plastered all over them). I'm sure Brooks must have a similar design, though the maintenance involved in owning a Brooks is a bit of a turn-off.

I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks !

I see several on ebay like the following posted below. They all appear to be missing the neon colors/large logos, either that, or I'm not as sensitive to what they have on them I haven't ridden/maintained a Brooks, but have had no issue maintaining all of my leather bridles and equestrian saddles, some of which are well over 30 years old, and look like new. I did just order a new to me Selle Anatomica bike saddle which is similar to the Brooks in that it is leather, but features a cutout, and softer leather for quicker break in, and am very excited to give it a spin.
