No. The "steel blue" I'm talking about is actually indigo, or close to it. Very much like the classic A.P.C. raw denim color.
Nonetheless, I saw something like the sky blue pants you're showing, at the A.P.C. store - it was utterly bizarre, as it was not
denim, but a chino (constructed like a chino) made in a cotton imitating denim. I wouldn't take it, even for free. But I don't know if it's your item. Believe it or not, they don't have much merchandise in the Parisian main store... You can make a request for something precise, and the salesman will leave the store and come back with it 5 minutes later; but there's pretty nothing to try in on display.
Oh, sorry for the long post. Anyway - please answer my post, quoted here:

She told me the denim for NS this season was different from their other denims, etc.
What do you think of it?
