I guess I will have to dye my dark blue jean into black as blue will look cheap. I let you know...

Best bet is to use Rit color remover (is this available in France?). Once you get a more even "white" to the garment, the overdye will look less spotty. This happened to me several years ago. The dyer stripped the jeans and then redyed them but honestly I was not thrilled with the result. Part of what I like about denim is the color change between the warp and weft threads.

That's a good point. Also, if you dye the jeans, you'll lose any contrasting stitching, right? That may look strange.

I agree but if I dye in BLACK it will be like a BLACK jeans which as no contrast

It's likely the thread won't take the dye anyway.

Why?

Because the thread is often cotton with glace finish, which is considerably more difficult to dye than the soft, uncoated yarns used for the jeans.

The thread is made of different material than the fabric of the jeans, usually some synthetic blend. The dye you will be able to use will be a weak type meant for dying natural fibers. The thread might take some of the dye, but for the most part it will probably not, as your dye is not meant for synthetics. In any case, I'm not sure how well "home" dye will work on jeans- I haven't had much luck with it myself, but maybe I didn't do it right.

you are talking about the sewing threads? Ok. I know, it will stay orange I guess like before dying
