Wonder why they named them after Mr. Roper?

So I addressed my brass eyelet issue.

 

The problem: I hate my shiny yellow brass eyelets on my natty CXL boots. Most accessories I wear are silver or stainless steel and they just don't work for me.

 

The solution: Sharpie

 

I went at all of them with a black Sharpie, but admittedly did a sloppy job and it didn't turn out very clean. I do like the brownish tinge it gives the brass though. Had I done a better job I would have been done with it.

 

 

You can see the original brass on the inside.

 

 

And a matching natty CXL belt with steel buckle just for comparison's sake.

 

 

 

Next up: gung ho with wire cutters and pliers removing the eyelets while I watched Dead Pool online.

 

 

 

The lace holes were left in pretty decent shape, with some minor impressions but unsightly Sharpie markings.

 

 

Drinking on the job.

 

 

Now, being the fashion forward free thinker I am, I opted to put digital camo paracord for laces through the empty eyelets. I can proudly say I am the first person ever in the history of Styleforum to do this on a pair of Vibergs. 

 

Yes, I have started the Next Big Thing right here, right now.

 

 

But I wasn't feeling them so I threw the original brown waxed laces back on.

 

 

Tomorrow I'll go find some silver/gunmetal eyelets and finish up this late-night project

I think it would look alot better grain side. Amazing how different it looks then the ones they did for superdenim - one looks like a Viberg rendition of an Ugg and the other looks like a boot.
