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.
