IH-777S-142ib - 14oz Selvedge Denim Super Slim Tapered Jeans - Indigo/Black

I’m sorry for the noob question, but is indigo black vs indigo overdyed black the same thing or very different from each other? Is indigo black an all black jean vs the overdyed model just a blue jean with a black dip to finish?

Not a noob question so do not worry. The indigo/black is new, the overdye thing is not, so this bares repeating.

They are not the same thing. As you correctly say OD'ed denim is normal blue jeans dipped in black fugitive dye.

The indigo/black is a mix of indigo and black denim, woven together. That is to say that the horizontal threads in the weave are dyed with a black dye that will fade. The jeans present as dark indigo (not black!).

Not a problem. There is one error in the above however. They present more as a very dark indigo moving towards black. A bit like the XHSib. The point being that the white weft that normally lightens denim, isn’t white here. Apologies for the error.

Original post corrected.

Teaser of how this denim fades (note this is the 19ozib, not 14ozib, but contrast of fades will be consistent):

I’m considering these, and I think the picture in this thread is great. However Filthy has posted pictures here https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=104.msg659776#msg659776 (page 186) of a pair of XHS ib, which seem to have faded differently. 

I think Giles’s look like the fabric has changed color, whereas Filthys look like there is a layer of dark color on top, which has been worn off in places.

Will these fade more like the 19 oz ones, or could it go either way?

Also how does the fabric compare to 21 oz indigo? I’ve tried a lighter pair than 21 oz, but they felt more stiff (I think it was 14 oz, but I cod be mistaken).

The link you posted goes to my pair of 19ib.

Quoting a page means nothing, people can choose how many posts they view per page, so if you want to refer to a particular post, you have to paste a link to that specific post.

If you go here:

https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=14707.msg654662#msg654662

You will see how the 142ib denim fades.

Thinking this is my next pair...I’ve always worn the 666 fit but would like it slightly more tapered in the lower leg but curious as to if anyone has experience with getting this over the shaft of a cowboy boot? Will it sit ok or be too tight on the shaft

Tag size?  Makes a difference to hem size?

Does anyone have any thoughts on whether these stretch more / less / same as the 21oz denim?

Probably about the same/maybe a little less, but certainly not as quickly.
