I picked these up during the last sale. Color is dark and saturated, but not much bleeding. Although I did get some indigo bleed on my filson bag from rubbing against them. Fabric is really nice though, they have a great feel and aren't super heavy. Very similar to the dark SK's I have from Rogue Territory. Fade potential is good, already getting some on my back pocket and sides - look at some fade picks for dark SK's and ST-120 shadow selvedge from 3sixteen to give you an idea.
