    Mine have the slightest fade but it’s hard to see in pics. They’re not much different than yours tbh.

    Sizing down on DH a lot (or denim in general) is pretty overrated. If there's not a lot of pressure on the material, it won't stretch that much. If you need to size down 3 to have the thigh area fit properly for you, might be better to find a different brand/cut. Tapering from the knee down is much more feasible.

    They still reissue some of the older Dior washes, although I haven't tracked the variance from version to version (ie Jake, Under My Car, Mulholland Drive, Waxing Moon, etc).

    @nsubrmnn thanks for that pic. How does the denim weight compare? I was surprised how light/stretchy the Carbons were intially.

    You may have got lucky. The hole on my right knee is not reinforced either.

    The obsidians are a true (black as f*ck black) black, the mr p washed is a washed black or a “carbon” (think graphite like a pencil, it’s dark but not black) with a slight fade down the thighs. The crease on the thighs of the mr p are from me wearing them just prior to the shot, obsidian has “baked in” creases. The mr p is a light weight stretch denim; the obsidian feels more substantial and don’t feel as stretchy due to their raw nature. I haven’t worn them because I got onyx the same day, but I will this weekend and give you a review
