    As posted in TOJ thread, same kinda thing I was dealing with with my SNS knit which I haven't done yet.
    You can drill out the snaps and replace them with black ones of the same size.

    This is an interesting proposal. I suppose I would need a leather shop to deal with that.

    is it blasphemous to take a perfectly good pair of trousers and hem them as shorts?

    Why do some people insist on obscuring their photos on this site? All the silly facial overlays distract from the fits!

    Anonymity. Seems fairly self evident.

    Yeah, or just anyone who can put snaps on something. For about $15 in tools (anvil and setter) and $4 in snaps (make sure you figure out if you need line 20 or line 24 snaps), you could even do it yourself.

    hey i heard you guys like salvage, so i made you a brand that only makes salvage

    The model looks like a friend of mine, aged about 10-20 years. Uncanny. Hopefully my friend would at least have the sense to wear eye protection in a machine shop, though.

    You should be able to take a solid look at the pants and determine if they could be converted, and if they can -- I definitely see no problem with that. Especially if you can sew a hem or know someone who can. It's a good idea

    Here is the thing - see how there are 4 pieces to that snap system? The rightmost one, I don't want to get rid of. It is fully matte black. I could also deal with the bit on the other side not being matte. The only snaps that actually kinda irk me are the ones on the body, the bits on the left side of your picture.
