Do the 1995 original black/true red xis have a lighter mesh than the 2001 retro? I've noticed that the mesh on my original pair is significantly lighter. I hope this wasn't caused by storing them with silica packets. Is it supposed to be that way?

I don't know about the mesh, but I know that the red is much more vibrant on the OGs than the '01s and CDPs.

The mesh on the OGs can look dark grey-%+$ in the light, as opposed to the retros which are more of a flat black.

my breds(CDPs - 2pairs 2001s - OG)..more or less they're quite similar. some OGs tend to be lighter because of their age.
also the outsole color is more 'orange' compared to their brothers..

The 01 pair third from the right's toe is mad shorter than the 01 pair on it's left. Wait a minute, guys, I thought JB quality was on point 10 years ago

steal of a lifetime, but i have to disagree. the 01s are much more comfortable than the OGs (and yes I had both)
