    Here's the picture of the internal tag from my old Snap-T, which I'm certain is from 1991 (F1 is 1991, F01 is 2001, F11 is 2011).

    Sorry for the delay, @JFST ; I've been crazy busy the past few days, and am currently halfway through the first trip (of two) from San Jose to Boulder, CO...

    Please keep us updated with the results. I would love to find out about the results.

    Were you there recently?


    Dude, i use that shit to get rid of ink on my white walls!
    I think the reason hairspray works is because of the alcohol.

    Will do. I threw them up for sale last night thinking if they sell, great. If not, I'll probably buy some indigo later this week and give it a shot this weekend... I've got a pair of khaki canvas duck shorts and a few other things I'd like to experiment with too.

    Sorry, I am lost and having trouble following this. There is a resale/consignment store that rejects some customers or purposefully tries to make them uncomfortable? What could possibly be that good that they reject customers?

    You found $176? At a thrift store? Did you find it before you bought it or was it a great surprise later?

    Try alcohol (very gently). It sometimes takes off pen.

    DONT try magic eraser! DO NOT! It will strip the color and finish right off. Those Magic Erasers are an abrasive as they dissolve. I made that mistake on my car interior. The Magic Eraser works well on hard plastic door panels that get a little grungy. But, I accidentally wiped over the edge of the leather trim on the panel, and it took the color and finish right off. On this soft leather you would strip it and scuff it immediately.

    Magic Erasers work well on things that you don't mind using an abrasive on. But, there are MANY things that the Magic Eraser will ruin.

    I use alcohol wipes. from a first aid kit. or baby wipes. with mixed results.

    Alcohol spray for cleaning electronics is another option. or this stuff:

    I would try this (or any other cleaner) on an inconspicuous place on the leather before I attempted to remove the ink.
