Yes, it's true shorthair black smokes do seem to keep tabby striping, tho the purebreds (except for the Egyptian Maus) are not supposed to have them. Longhairs don't in their winter coat, but may have faint ones in a summer coat. A true black smoke is supposed to be a black cat, with only the white under coat appearing when coat is parted or in areas where it's naturally short and white peeks through. But often the color is a dark charcoal grey.
