    Bought a new blazer this past weekend and I'm not digging the regular black buttons it came with.

    I'm thinking of replacing them with metal buttons, so I've narrowed it down to these four colors:

    Gold:

    Silver:

    Silver oxide:

    Dark matte:

    This blazer will be worn from anything from dress pants, to maybe dress it down casually with a nice pair of dark jeans.

    I'm pretty partial to the silver oxide and dark matte myself, they aren't as flashy as the regular gold and silver ones.

    So what do you guys think I should get?

    I think the silver oxide would look good.

    Go with brown horn buttons, for a different look than the usual metal buttons for your sprt coat/blazer.

    Horn, a distant second for silver oxide

    I did the "gold button blazer " look for most of my life. I like the silver a lot.

    Go with gold. Trends come and go, but classics last forever.
