Dirt Weathering on Shirt

Looking for a permanent method to make an Indiana Jones shirt look dirty and grimey like it hasn't been washed in weeks. I'm probably gonna use coffee to get sweat stains but I want other little stains and marks of dirt. Suggestions?

Sand paper for the cuffs and collar (or other parts where you know there'll be some wear and tear). Real dirt, cannot imitate what Nature does best;). Some oil stain will do also...good luck!

I was recently thinking pastels might be a good resource for other "earthly" colors for stains.

Some are permanent too- I think they make an oil-based crayon thing (no idea what it's called) but it is essentially a chunk of not quite hardened oil based paint. Someone else might know the right name for it.

If you have an art supply store locally, ask there for suggestions.
