How to make Steampunk spats dirty?

I made a pair of spats to go with my Steampunk costume. The trouble is that they look too creamy and pristine now. Does anyone have tips on how to make them look worn and dirty? They are too costumy to be worn without the costume. Thanks!

You could use coffee or tea to stain the fabric and make it look aged. Rasp it with sandpaper or a wire brush add wear marks. This site has heaps of good tips for distressing costume pieces:
