Really liking those GITD accents. Particularly the swoosh lining/double swoosh, don't think I have ever seen that on an AM1 before.

Makes me wonder what if all the white writing on the black sketches was GITD...

I haven't even HEARD of that...
LOL I hadn't either until I was researching ways to darken suede some time ago. It's actually used to treat and waterproof leather, but one of the side effects is it darkens the material. I had to wash some black suede Vans I got mud on and the suede faded pretty bad. Put some mink oil on and it looked and felt close to when it was new.

Thanks for the tip, I'll look into it. Was originally thinking baby oil.
