The Taccia Jeans series is well suited for notes of sympathy. In this color line, "Black" and "Dark Washed" (i.e. blue-black) would satisfy the strictest etiquette experts for a formal letter of condolence. The "Navy" ink could suggest respect for a deceased sailor or yachtsman, while "Indigo" could subtly signify that one had read an obituary with rather more appreciation than would be seemly to acknowledge openly. Finally, the nearly unreadable "Grey" could symbolize that one's grief was such that the ink had been diluted by copious tears.
