When I got dressed against the cold, I noticed, that there's a difference concerning the eyelets of my 2 pairs of Bean Boots.
The eyelets of the first pair I bought in 2012 are 2 piece solids. The kind of those you press together with a special plier.
But the eyelets of my seconds pair (Thinsulated), ordered this year, seem to be a one piece with folded down edges.
I am not sure if this is a quality issue, but I don't like the look.

What do you think?
