Sterling...extra points if all shaft fittings are sterling.

Is HW going to stock several Brigg shaft/handle choices?

Yes. We already do by special order. Any canopy color, any wood. Usually takes 2 months for them to make it. The regular in-stock line is growing, as well.

I think that gold actually works better for some canopies and woods, like bark cherry.

Sterling. I agree with Vox that sterling shaft fittings and tip make it even nicer. I have this on one of my umbrellas and it looks great.

That would be dependant on the colour of the canopy. If I had a black or navy canopy I would probably have a sterling collar, but because my briggs is yellow I have a gold collar.

I'd agree with this. But in general I prefer silver tone. It doesn't have to be sterling though as I don't really mind stainless.

And I just noticed one thing on your site. If you view the umbrellas page the Chestnut handle/black canopy shows up but it doesn't appear on the all accessories page.

I remember seeing King Bhumibol under one once, and it was pretty rockin'.
