Calm down, Vi-bros, here's some quick pics. Didn't clean them up, obviously.
But there are no deep (or even semi-deep) scratches in the leather whatsoever. Just rubbing away of the black coat to reveal the untanned leather underneath in various areas. It's a sturdy leather, so no folds either. I'll admit, they look pretty bad-ass. But I just can't pull them off now that I know what I look like wearing them.
