^^^i'd want some facts too if i was new to the denim game
apc's fade faster, have more fits, and are a bit pricey for what they are, but theyre good starters if you're willing to drop 170
unbrandeds on the other hand fade slow, have 3 fits, and are perfectly priced for being cheap raw denim 80
only thing that really sucks about unbrandeds is that they rarely have them in store so you wont be able to try them on.
you get your money's worth either way... but if your looking into apc's you might wanna try looking at 3Sixteen
actually my heart says naked n famous but my head says apc (and my wallet says unbranded, lol). well my problem is I can't try any of them on since I live in a third world country and only almost no store carry them. don't want to end up with an awkward fit.
3sixteen unfortunately is out of my budget.
sounds like your in a bit of a dilemma which i personally went through when purchasing or first pair of selvedge denim but it does get to the point where you gotta just go for it and cop. which is why it took me years to actually purchase my first pair of selvedge denim because like you i didn't have access to a store to actually try on any jeans and was scared of all the different possibilities that could go wrong.........eventually i said fudge it and copped some UB 201s and just received my APC NS in the mail today :-D
my point being is YOU will never know until you actually cop a pair and experience for yourself, because your just living vicariously through us......but im curious as to what country you live in and what exactly do you mean by the term "3rd world"
