Looks great. My seats need similar treatment.

I love Tony, but he over stuffs the seat bottoms IMHO. If you like that "well ridden" feel, you lose that with Tony. Even when you make your intentions clear. But damn, he does beautiful seats.

^^ Those look just about perfect.

One thing Tony can do (and I went with this option) is to eliminate the piping on the seat edges. Using a French seam looks cleaner, feels better, and you won't have the wear problems you get with piping. Extra points cuz the cork sniffers will hate it.
