I have read two links gotten some feedback from another forum.

According to the feedback, both structures are not the same.

the something of one's choice

the choice of one's something.

Could you tell what is different? I still don't understand why they are different.


As someone on the other forum pointed out, the choice of your [something] is not really idiomatic English.

The [something] of your choice has a positive meaning - the one you have specially chosen as your favourite.

Your choice of [something] may be used in a negative sense, as in "I don't like his choice of friends".

The choice of his friends would mean 'what his friends have chosen'. It's possible to invent a context in which you might say that, but it's not a very likely expression.
