Blackest Black

In the Dressing Your Truth system, only Type 4 is supposed to wear black, and then only really black black. When your Type 4 black jeans begin to show a greenish cast, or your tidy Type 4 black denim jacket goes white around the edges, DYT recommends getting new ones.

But that's because they don't know about Blackest Black. Blackest Black is like Goth nirvana or something. All they sell is their special blend of very, very black reactive cold-water dye.

It took my order a while to arrive--they're in the Netherlands--and when I began to despair, they offered to ship me a new order free of charge. That's now nice they are. But my package arrived an hour after that email exchange, so all is well.



Here's the adorable little dyeing kit they send you.
Dye kit from Blackest Black, with two vials of dye powder, plastic gloves, a stir-stick, a measuring spoon, packets of soda ash, and instructions
They even include the stir-stick.


And here's what I'm gonna try refurbishing to a true, saturated, Type 4 black:
A faded black denim Levi's jacket and faded black jeans laid out on a white background
Maybe they'll even match afterwards. Not that I would ever wear matching denim jeans and jacket.



Okay, wish me luck. Off I go to the repurposed recycling bin that's sitting in my bathtub.
