    Hi, no, most black denim doesn't fade (Exception are unstable pigment dyes like used on the overdyed IHs or Samurai black Knights).

    The creases will wear out of course and become lighter with time. Wait with your first wash as long as possible...

    Was there actually a 6 months washing instruction along with the tube kelly?

    I've been wearing mine since August '11. I can notice some fade mostly on the back pockets where I'm wearing my wallet which has big round clips. The other most noticeable fade is on my right knee and around the pockets but...it's really subtle. Black jeans in general take more time to fade so I don't intend to wash it any time soon.

    BTW I have the feeling they were overdyed, there's some blue showing underneath...

    Quite a bit yes.
