    Yeah, the zips look a little off at first (only when you compare gunmetal vs black side by side though), but the more you wear it the black kinda fades so you get this badass subtle bronzing going on

    The zippers on mine (anodized black) fade into gold, not sure what's up with that.

    My only problem with the black zips is matching whatever else you are wearing. Seems like you'd have wear like, all black KVA monochrome style.
    I think the gunmetal just helps tie stuff together better.

    Haha man, I think you're overthinking it. They're just zips, anything you can wear with gunmetal you can wear with the blacked out

    I might have asked this before but did we ever get any pics of the navy varsity with black leather that someone here special ordered?

    He put it up for sale, but it is apparently very dark navy. Pretty much looks all black in the pics

    they're all nickel-plated brass and get worn down - so you're closer to nirvana than others :slayer: It's actually a really good look once all of the zips and pulls are 'natural' metal colored, it's very honest looking and unachievable without time.

    Thanks man, wish the pictures were better lit and clearer, but it looks awesome from what I can imagine.

    Yeah, I'm very tempted to order that if I manage to sell my varsity before the production of varsities stop.

    Loved that colorway on a varsity worn by a girl in the how would you like a girl to dress-thread
