MJ Black Stam question

  1. I want to get a black stam but I'm slightly worried about the grey contrast stitching in the panels. Is it really obvious? I'm not really keen on this idea. I havent had a chance to see the stam in person so any black stam owners (new season) who can help me out please do!
  2. S/S 07's Quilted Black Stam has faded black stitching, it blends in with the leather. It doesn't pop as much as 1 of the 2 batches from F/W 06.
