    When it comes to anything navy, I have always gone with smoked MOP buttons. While I like the look, I want to try horn buttons this time around, but not just plain black horn. With that, which of the following would you choose for a navy sportcoat? I could go with any of the four, but am really drawn toward #1 and #3.

    1) Thick "Mottled" Horn: These are pretty dope.

    2) Brown and Cream horn: Pretty damn close to #1 just a different cut.

    3) Siena Horn: I like these alot. Have seen similar colored buttons on Sartorio jackets before. Are they too flashy?

    4) Dark Brown Horn: Probably the least exciting of the group

    If for conservative business dress (CBD), then maybe #3 would be a bit flashy, due to the contrast with navy. That aside, all the buttons are tasteful and therefore personal preference is the biggest factor.
