Jeans leaving mark on my saddle?
So I ride in jeans and half chaps, always have. I've been wanting to actually try some riding pants with the half chaps instead because of how hot it is, and what the jeans are doing to my saddle. The saddle is light colored (kinda orange), and old, but still in great shape. It has some cosmetic flaws and is probably half an inch too small for me, but like I said, it doesn't inhibit my position and it works. I also don't show so I'm not overly concerned.

BUT, my jeans are leaving a mark on the saddle, where my thighs rest against the leather. It's darkened and worn a bit. Is there any product that can get rid of this, or at least help? I clean and condition my saddle about once a month but have no real knowledge about what the best product is.

Any ideas?

Weird...I have ridden in jeans for ages and have never had that problem. I wonder if the color of your jeans is bleeding when you get sweaty? You may be able to remove that with a good cleaning.
