I'm definitely getting on the list for the brief in grass, and maybe in vert d'eau, too. But here's my question: Would the big gold hardware, which I like in general, be too bright on such a brightish green? Would the old hardware look better? Same question on the the sea green... I'd love to hear from people who are not opposed to the new hardware in theory, because I do like it - it's fun and different, and a nice change. Just not sure whether it's the best choice for either green. Thanks in advance.
