Light horn or MOP for a lighter navy is really nice too.

I can say that I am just saving my pennies, I just bought a RLBL charcoal suit, but while in there, the salesman put a navy jacket on me, it has shiny silver buttons. yeah... loved it. It will be my next big purchase.
I agree with you, blue with gold feels... old to me. I get the traditional vibe, but the silver metal buttons stood out to me and I loved it. I believe it was 14-1500 bucks, but if you have a RL store in your area and like the idea of silver, check it out.
