    Does anybody know if these jeans are dry denim and if they fade well. I'm kind of interested in purchasing a pair since I already have a bunch of blue jeans. Does anybody have any pictures of these jeans that are faded?

    Yes, dry. No, black dye doesn't fade like indigo. I was thinking about the overdyed APC, too, but opted for the Samurai S5000BK instead------white weft, nice contrast fade.

    These are NOT dry. They are washed indigo NS overdyed black. Having said that, they'll fade like crazy. They won't, however, be stiff or feel like dry jeans.

    You could get the 45rpm equivalent.
