the damage was done
Eyelets seem to be causing me some problems of late, the first set I bought came with a crapy device that didn't work effectively. The next device ruptured part of the pocket I had set aside for detailing (too big a hole to simpley cover with an eyelet). Other than the damage it caused it was pretty handy and worked quite well. On the bright side the hole was in quite a convenient place for some extra detailing/cover up!
After the troubles these trousers have put me through I think the small triangle detailing at either side gives them a little edge.
Let’s just hope my patience is not tested any time soon.....
