    Hi All

    I have a bag only Mars Jordan. Frame and lenses pretty good but suede awful. Cleaning won't help much - it's a state!

    I'm thinking of selling this but should I:

    1) Remove the suede so this becomes a Crater with a Jordan serial and Gold lenses? (if so, value?)
    2) Try to sell as is? (though who would wear with cruddy suede)
    3) Other?

    Thanks for opinions?

    Sell it as is and be clear on the description.

    Let someone else who wants it worry about the cruddy-ness

    thanks for the tag @supersharp.

    just a mild washing up liquid solution worked in with a soft toothbrush gets all the dirt out. once cleaned, allow to dry slowly in a cool place. the leather is really thin tho, so steady as you go....

    as i said in my thread - they wont return to factory fresh but they make a great wear pair.

    I'm trying to figure out why all these people threw away their original Mars boxes

    Because they knew the angst that it would cause you!
