    Has anyone attempted to darken the color of their light brown leather loop watch band through the use dye or oil?

    If so, can you please explain and post pictures of the result?

    Thanks!

    Perhaps he wants a more worn look? The darker leather loop would be uniformly dark.

    Maybe I missed something. Is there a dark brown leather loop? I can only find light brown and black on the Apple Store.

    I am asking because most of my leather accessories (shoes, belt, etc.) are a much darker brown color and before I spend $150 on the band, I'd like to know if I can make it match. It's probably an OCD thing.

    I agree - I really wish apple had made a dark brown leather loop or classic buckle option. All of my leather for work is dark brown and the brown leather loop is definitely a few shades lighter, so I ended up getting the link band as well (although I think I'd still prefer an Apple leather band).

    It will darken on its own as it gets dirty

    I know someone on the forums had a picture. The brown is actually darker than the render makes it look on apple's website.

    You can try to experiment with a brown leather dye.
