good saddle for my Fuji Royale II

I've got a stock Fuji Royale II that's dead ringer for the green bike at the top of this catalog page:

https://www.classicfuji.com/RoyaleII&..._1983_Page.htm

I'm trying to pick a saddle that would be a good aesthetic fit. I'm leaning towards a Brook B17 special in honey or antique brown. I figure the copper rivets and rails would fit with the gold rims and dark green frame. Any thoughts on these or other saddles of similar width? I realize the stock bike has a black saddle and tape, but I'm planning to switch out both for something a little warmer.

And yes, I realize this is all a little petty and cosmetic, but since I'm dumping a chunk of change into this, I'd like it to come out looking nice, and I wanted to get some experienced input.

Thanks gang.

What are your thoughts on a stock Fujita saddle?

That's what I have currently, though it's torn. It's alright, but I'm not a huge fan, as I plan to set the bars a little higher than what this saddle seems intended to accommodate. I should mention I'm not keeping things stock; I know that's sacrilegious, but I'll be keeping the stock parts on-hand so I have the option to swap back later.

For what it's worth, I see existing stock of the green B17 special is still available. It would probably make a great match, but it seems wrong somehow.
