I don't think it'll stick around, though (ironic that this is a three year old thread, though) - 'dark denim' cycles in and out, and a lot of people who think of themselves as fashion conscious probably prefer a variety of shades in their denimz lineup. I'm thinking it will stay an in then out then in again phenomenom, like this thread illustrates. And if you're not concerned about fades, as most people aren't, then stuff like selvage probably doesn't matter that much anyway.
