Light buttons on a dark sportcoat?

So I found a medium grey prince of wales sportcoat that fit perfectly off the rack. The only problem is that the (black) buttons were the chinsy-est things I've ever seen. I'm thinking of buying some light brown or tan buttons to replace them, but I'm not sure how it would look. Has anyone done this before?

Also, I'm thinking of buying from Ascuteasabutton.com Anyone know of any other good sites, or any place in Chicago that has a nice selection of suit buttons?

I would suggest a very dark or charcoal grey color for buttons. My favorites are usually a simulated horn that will have veins of various shades of ivory, dark brown and dark grey running through them.
