Here's my question, why doesn't Coach make any bags with an antique silver finish or pewter? I love all the hardware and turnlocks and buckles on the Legacy, Carly and Zoe lines just to name a few. I especially like brass hardware on my Carly's. I am just not a fan of the super shiny silver hardware that they use on the bags with that color hardware. Why not a more muted silver-tone for their bags? Would you be more willing to buy a bag with a pewter-like finish or would you rather them keep the silver the way it is. I was checking out my Legacy wallets (last years models) and was wishing that they would make bags and accessories with the same finish hardware, just in silver..

Plus, the keyfobs and charms would match better... being that they make few brass or gold tone ones!

I prefer the shiny silver over a more muted silver tone. It is too bad we can't just choose which hardware we want on the bags.

That would be fabulous! I always lean towards the distressed or vintage look, maybe I'm just hoping Coach comes out with bags with antique silver hardware and the same leather as the 06 and 07 Legacy bags... a girl can dream :P

I wish Coach would come out with a pewter color. Kate Spade came out with a pewter leather color and I ended up buying one of her bags instead.

There is a gorgeous graphite colored patent Garnet with gunmetal hardware out. I don't like garnet, but the color combo is wonderful and I hope to see it on another bag in the near future

I love silver but also would like to see more gunmetal!! I will never by brass though...that's because all my jewellery is silver.

I did not notice the hardware colors before. Now that I have Brass, Silver and Pewter, I prefer Silver. To me it just adds an extra pop of color to a bag.

I definitely prefer silver and would love to see more gunmetal as well. There are quite a few bags there that I would have purchased had they come with silver instead of gold or brass hardware. I'm not into those at all. In fact, I will not purchase a bag with hardware other than silver or gunmetal... What would be best is if Coach made most bags in both silver and gold/brass versions like e.g. black leather sabrinas so we could all have a choice and be happy!

I think it would be nice if they would tone down the shine factor a little. I am a huge FAN of almost any bag that has silver hardware, because ofcourse it matches MANY MORE of the FOB's in my collection!!!

I am personally also a FAN of the brushed gunmetal hardware that they used in the black canvas tattoo tote!!! I believe the bag I'll be picking up either Friday or Sat has silver hardware, and I intend to make it one of my everyday bags!!!

I really hate shiny silver.. I like an antique silver or an amber-ish silver. But I definitely like brass better than any shade of silver.
