Helmet Question - GPA and CO

Thanks in advance for your help. I bought my first helmet today, a GPA, as it was the only helmet that fit my head - CO wouldn't fit, nor IRH as well. It is charcoal with a black venting stripe, a Titium. My question is: Is this color combo OK? I didn't realize it wasn't black due to the lighting in the store. Is this an odd color combo? I keep seeing pics of GPA that have the silver stripe. Also, I keep reading that these are not the 'in' helmet. I am 32 so I am not as worried about that.....but I still don't want to look ridiculous. I also bought black Ariat H2O paddock boots.

Was curious to know in addition, if the Charles Owen Wellington Pro fit more like a GPA? I like the CO look better, too bad the GR8 and JR8 didn't fit. And, this new helmet doesn't leave a red mark on my forehead, it does fit tightly enough to move the forehead skin when I move it up and down, but doesn't feel super tight.

Thanks so much for the answers!

I actually love the black on black a lot better that the gray. All the pictures I see of people wearing them have black on black. They're an 'in' helmet, but it shouldn't matter as long as it fits your head. It's better to be unique anyways haha.

Hmmm, I was trying to find a front view of the Wellington. But from the side it looks to have a kind of square-y or peaked look to it. The GPA is much rounder so it may have a different fit.

They are nice helmets. I really like the look of the as well as the GR8. I think the color of your helmet is just fine. The ones I can't seem to adjust to or really like are the brown ones. Why on earth would anyone choose that color? I guess its a taste thing but I don't know of a color of horse that a brown helmet would look good on. It's a mystery to me
