Though I have noticed the more recent asphalt shirts I've gotten have been darker.
With any dark-on-dark, a lot of it has to do with print size. ie: Nevermore gets grief for being lots of terrible things, but especially because something as small as type fades super quick with not much washing. Pandamonium uses much larger chunks of black, meaning it is easier to see.
Same rules apply for navy and brown, but because they're more saturated (navy, in bad light, is easy to mistake for black) they tend to be even more tricky. Play with such things carefully. Even an olive tee can be problematic in some lighting situations with thin black ink (see also "deer by numbers")
