For those interested, I am now mixing MediterraneanDark for gtk3 apps
and Darklooks for gtk2 apps. To achieve this I simply copied
MediterraneanDark/gtk-3.0/ to Darklooks/gtk-3.0/. (Do the same for
user and root in ~/.themes/ .) So now when I change the theme to
Darklooks in Xfce > Settings > Appearance, both gtk2 (Darklooks) and
gtk3 (MediterraneanDark) apps are affected.

Both themes are easy on the eyes by using dark and light shades of
grey, but they're not quite alike. (Especially the flashy blue
selection colour in MediterraneanDark is very different from the one
in Darklooks.)
