Gentlemen,
I am interested in a black leather jacket from Joe Mccoys/Real Mccoys; however, it has white contrasting thread, which I'd like to dye black. Is this possible? Does anyone know of a leather shop that can do this?

thank you

A fabric marker may or may not work over poly cotton threads. Angelus acrylic dye can go over it and stays well. But unless you get the Mccoys jacket for very little money I would suggest against it and just look for another jacket.

I recently got a zip deck jacket with the navy logos painted on. I alcohol cleaned it then fabric markered it. It was a lot of work that I didn't expect. I should have continued to look for one without the painted letters...

That looks like dual color knits. Very normal. I have tricolor ones on my Rainbow Country, and I might have the dual color ones on one of my flight jackets too. I prefer these fancier knits.

If you need replacement knits there are made in USA tri color and dual color knits too. I've seen them on Norshor jackets.
