I know I want the peacoat in Navy, but I'm now having doubts about the MDR. I originally planned to buy the jacket with black hardware, but now I'm leaning more towards black with gunmetal hardware. The only thing putting me off gunmetal (And this is going to sound very pathetic) is being labeled as a hard rocker/grease fanboy upon meeting new people. I'm not saying these things are bad - and hope people don't take that to meen I think the rocker look is bad - It's just not a direction I want to go in. Can anyone with a black-gunmetal MDR comment on if they've ever thought that themselves or had others comment on it? As I said I know it's daft - has anyone ever bought something they feel uncomfortable in at first but then grow to love it?
Also I will mainly wear the MDR with a t shirt/shirt, raw jeans, and boots - Is it possible that one of the hardwares would make the jacket more versatile?
Thanks (I feel an idiot for actually asking this - but will appreciate serious responses )
