That also explains why some of my other themes aren't working properly!

The only issue is that now all the menu titles are squashed together as below. I'll look into this. For now the window manager looks great, it would be good to get the overall themes working properly too. The stock Xfce themes work great with gtk3 apps, whereas the one I've tried from xfcelook others don't.
the squashed menus result (most likely) from an incompatibility between the GTK3 theme and your GTK3 version. I gave up on trying to set a custom GTK3 theme and just stick to the default one: Adwaita. I may not particularly like it, but at least it works fine.

Here is another dark theme that looks promising,

cwizard - this one is nearly perfect and the best so far. It's also the first one to display a dark theme properly when attaching a file through a browser. But for one small issue - it cuts off the top and bottom of the Slackware logo to the left and puts a grey border around the notification area to the right of the panel. Very close though. Thank you for suggesting it.

Weirdly enough it says it supports GTK 3.24. Hmm and I thought it would only work with 3.18.

Does increasing the size of your panel fix the cut off of the Slackware logo issue? If you don't want it bigger you may need to use a slightly smaller image.
As far as the grey border around the notification area, are you sure that the border is not ticked on in the properties?
Admittedly I haven't checked out this theme yet, just throwing out a couple ideas while I'm at work. ;^)
