Default Suggestions for seat upholstery?

My OEM cloth seats are torn and have seen better days. I'm wanting to reupholster them, but havn't seen too many recent threads out their on this.

Some of the places i've looked at: (sorry post count is too low to post URL's)
mrmikes dot com
interior-innovations dot com
A local upholstery shop, ~$350 /seat (for the simplest bucket seat, not sure what mine will be)


Does anyone have any experience with these or suggestions?

What do people feel about leather vs vinyl? Does leather hold up as well in the sun? Does the vinyl/leatherette stuff feel cheap?


Thanks in advance for any input

The two most popular sources that I'm aware of are LeatherSeats.com and Katzkin. Personally I've used both and feel LS.com is the better choice. Leather is my choice and I've had no reservations or regrets.

oops, forgot to put in LeatherSeats.com. I've look at those also, but I don't think they have any pictures of them actually installed in a miata, so I sort of disregarded them.

Have you had vinyl / leatherette before? I'm wondering if anyone has tried both.

Does the leather in your experience hold up well? I'd be worried about it getting cracked or wrinkled etc...
