    White stitching and white piping at the seams would look pretty good.

    It looks pretty good IMO. Beyond that custom embriodery (SP?) is about all I can think of.

    im pretty sure hes trying to keep with the classic looking theme


    on that note...

    i would go with something like on the new Mini Cooper Clubman
    it has the classic look with the modern feel and good support

    that one looks good... something like that is what i was suggesting with the clubman style seats

    go black for the outside in leather then do a black microfiber in the center
    do vertical stitching instead of horizontal
    then if you want more of a classic look throw some white piping around the seams between the outer and inner material... or maybe along the ridges
    when you get the seats done have them put some more side and hip bolstering in to give it a nice modern sport seat feel with the classic look

    depending on how much its going to cost you could always go with something like the corbeau classic bucket
    Corbeau: Classic Bucket

    the leather is good for the high points because if its good leather and you take care of it, it will wear well.... the fiber on the other hand will hold you better so you're not sliding around when hitting the corners (of course good side bolstering also helps with this)
