He will discuss color options, etc with you. I asked about a thread color and he did not recommend it because it would fade. I don't recall which color it was. He will do what you want, but he will also give you recommendations for comfort, wear, etc. He wants happy customers.Something similar to your requests would probably work for me as well. Got some time with a sore rear end to take some notes and try a couple things until shipping it out to get an idea. Might fancy some red thread though but definitely sticking with the vinyl.
