tnx. so, basically, the same denim was used on both models. only difference is that, the blacks were piece dip-dyed in "fugitive pigment dye
sorry for the moronic questions. 445+tax is serious jeans purchase. i'm just trying to visualize how they're going to fade. i've seen some overdyes that did not fade to [usual denim] white ... instead, had a dull, monochromatic fading effect. in a nutshell, 2 fading stages on atari areas__ from black to indigo, then from indigo to [the usual] bare/undyed yarn core. pls correct me if i'm wrong.
