One thing I've seen people do is not add the white to the color, but
instead add a white - or even light grey - to the overcoat. They've
said it tones down the colors, without ruining the shade. That will
also take care of the insignia.

I don't do either. I've tried with the white in the overcoat, but
wasn't impressed with the way it turned out. For now, I'll just
weather with pastels, etc. to "tone it down".
