Thanks, Massimo, that's the only explanation that makes any sense. And you're quite right, the Italian text isn't up to much as it is!

Buon lavoro.

disagree  Amanda Calleri: it sounds more like "contrasting" stitching, in the sense that you can actually see the colour of the stitching because it stands out compared to the blue of the denim fabric
