I love the fading process with indigo denim, but I haven’t seen a pair of faded SBG’s that I like the looks of as much as I do a clean, nice pair of Superblacks. The OD and IB denim is a different story because the indigo adds color, making the fades much more interesting.

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person on this forum that prefers my black denim to stay black.  :(
I enjoy the variety. I don’t own a Superblack pair but I wouldn’t mind if I felt the right cut was available in it.

I adore my superblacks now that they are over ten years old and finally soft. It was the crunchiest and heaviest denim ever for the first few years, though. If iron heart came out with a superblack with a softer hand, I would be overjoyed. Add stretch, and I would never wear anything else.

I don't like anything to stay too clean / perfect looking if I beat the hell out of it, so I don't mind some fading. But I  hate when denim fades too quickly

My understanding is that the selvage version of the Superblack denim that was used on the 888 cut was much softer than the normal Superblack denim. I’d be more than fine with the selvage version replacing the original version, and I’d love a lighter weight option as well, something in the 14-16oz range. Not holding my breath, but I can dream, right?  ;D

I had both SB versions and the selvage iteration is softer to the touch but still quite stiff. It's actually a pretty good idea to replace the old non-selvage SB denim with the selvage edition on bottoms, vests and jackets and also maybe add some other cuts besides the 634/666.

That’s the nice thing about nearly all IH gear. Even when it isn’t indigo it ages beautifully. I have the IHE-19 in Superblack and it has had the shit kicked out of OT through everyday use over four years. It’s faded and aged wonderfully, although not in the same sense as indigo denim.

I’d love to see SBG after it has been subjected to your working environment.

Flannel trousers (pants) for winter lounging. Could be worn with matching shirt for a completely overbuilt set of pajamas.
