Do you mean like pitch black denim? Or that faded black denim/almost grey?

Oh...definitely! The faded kind especially! The faded black/grey denim drainpipes are practically a London girl's uniform! A girl at work who's just recently moved from New York to here was actually asking 'Why is every girl wearing the same pair of jeans?' Topshop apparently sells their Baxter skinny in jeans in grey by the TRUCKLOAD!

I've seen ppl in Tokyo wearing lots of vintage Levis and Lee jeans (they have tons of shops just dedicated to vintage denim) in that true black denim - they're always too long so they wear them bunched up at the ankles and they then wear a ton of stuff over it (eyelet dresses with casual t-shirts) then some cute peeptoe shoes. Sounds like one particular outfit but I saw quite a few wearing this look! Ah if only trends here were that cute! Only in Japan.....

I love black denim. They can go with so much, my pair no longer look black as much as they look grey so I think it's time for me to buy a new pair of black jeans.

I agree with smiths -- black denim especially faded almost to a charcoal gray is my new thing, especially going out here in NYC.

Oh by the way, this is my first post on here.

I'm wearing slightly faded skinny black jeans today.

I saw a bunch of beat up black and greyish jeans at maxfield the other day...

Faded/grey ones are everywhere...I don't get the hype.
I like the black jeans though.

I love black denim. I wear it in dark black and also grey, but I don't see as a trend here. A lot of shops sell jeans in those colours, but I don't see a lot of people picking it up. Here people wear a lot of skinny dark blue jeans, and I'm a bit tired of them, but the black ones are not a big trend yet.

Wow, I love those Tsubis.

I only have one pair of blackish denim, but I wear them to death. They're definitely my favorite pair right now.
