Hi there folk-a-rinos...

I have un petit question...

I have a pair of really old Diesel 'cargo pants'...they're made out of a black kind of canvasssy cotton (not textured but very tough and tent-like).

They're uber-baggy-o-tastic so I was thinking of sewing two strips of blue leather down the side to make them look cool and hip in a kind of Yamamoto-esque way...

Whaddya think?

Were they suede shoes? I want to do this on a pair of suede shoes that now have a stain. Im still not sure about the plosishing in the end (after dying them) or not....

No they are leather - I have never dyed suede so I am not sure. For suede you need a different type of dye. I suspect polishing afterwards would not be advisable as with all suede. Good luck sofialuv!!!

Prince - if you don't wear them anymore then its worth a try. How will you sew them on - do you have a machine or are you good with your hands? oooh er! you know what I mean...

I do have a sewing machine! (EDIT: now I think of it though, I'll probably have t hand sew leather, my mum has loads of specialist needles from when she was young and poor which I can nick off her so it's fine)

They're horrible trousers (I can't believe I bought Diesel In all fairness to my younger self they were 7) so they need something done to them...

The only item of clothing I've customized is a pair of Nike Pro SB Dunks...they're canvas sneakers that came in a sort of caramel brown color, I bleached the whole shoe except for the laces and now they're sort of a peach color, which provides a nice contrast to the dark brown laces IMO. I purposely did an uneven job on the bleaching with some splatter in certain places to give it a more vintage feel.

pretty close...here's a pic of the original shoe:



I've seen customizations of this shoe that look similar to the shoe you posted though...like they bleached certain parts to make them a lighter color while others remain intact and provide darker contrast.
