Default Tips for reproducing dark tone on tone print

Hi all,

New member here, new to screen printing and trying to experiment with different techniques.

Could anyone give me some direction / tips on reproducing the print in the link below? I have a similar hoodie and the ink is really soft. It also has a little distressed look but I'm unsure if it is part of the print process or the design. It also looks a little transparent (the fabric grey shows through a little). The color of the design is very dark but not pitch black. The hoodie I believe is a 50/50 blended AlStyle piece.

I am trying to reproduce the look with a Gildan Royal Blue / Sapphire 75/25 blend hoodie.

Thanks in advance!
