I have some N&F, they're def quality. I'm looking to cop some A.P.C. denim in the near future. I'd go w/ APC.

Neither should cost $300.

I prefer Nudies, the accents are very appealing.

apc, wings + horns, dior
May 20, 2012 @ 20:52:54
Buy both the APC and Naked and Famous
May 25, 2012 @ 03:30:19
Go with N&F, IMO better quality
May 25, 2012 @ 09:09:26
for 300 you can get both of them. So buy both!! but tbh buy some NF collab denim. Youll get some premium quality made in japan shit
May 25, 2012 @ 16:32:34
I have had both. I like the way my apc's look more than my n&f but N&F are higher quality.
May 25, 2012 @ 18:30:11
APC is Made in China and is highly overpriced. Buy Unbranded instead of APC.

N&F is far superior to APC in both fabric and quality construction.
May 25, 2012 @ 19:10:30
if you have 300, you might wanna get some pbj's, real japan blues, or even some 3sixteens
just make sure you size right...cause it could be 300 down the drain.
May 25, 2012 @ 21:23:58
I have APC's and they've been with me for about 3 years and have faded nicely. Go APC, but you have 300.... could get something better like imperials

so much this. for $300 you could easily pick up two pairs of N&F's.

it's so easy to shop smart about raw denim . . . once you know your size you can get great deals on NF from karmaloop with a 20% code, or at blueowl with their current sale.

even with apc tres bien has 20% of for non-EU customers.

it's really all about getting the most for your money imo. and that boils down to what fit works best for you, and which type of denim you are looking for: dark, light, quick fade, etc.

or you could just blow your entire wad on a pair of samurais.

APC is Made in China


My APCs say "made in Tunisia"

according to wikipedia, this is a country in Africa
May 26, 2012 @ 01:51:16
Whats a skinnier fit, APC's Petit Standard or N&F's Skinny Guys?

For Sale: Large Navy Supreme Floral Polo WTB: Medium Black Supreme Roses Football Top

FALSE

APC Jeans are usually made in Macau (technically under the Republic of China, but do you consider Puerto Rico the United States?) and in Japan ( Source: http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/3430/imga1318smallyx1.jpg) .
-APC denim has a far superior reputation to Naked & Famous and has been around a lot longer.
-There has been no issues with APC denim losing buttons and bad construction (evidenced in various N&F Elephant II posts on N&F thread).
-APC does not go on sale often, and has a far higher average price point than Naked & Famous.
-APC is bound to last while N&F is not. As a reference to keynesian economics, the supply side of N&F and APC is at a constant rate. Suppose the demand is at a constant level and will eventually rise, the price point of N&F cannot go up but stays at the same and goes down. APC on the other hand is with fine opportune to increase price (as has been apparent in previous years $165 - $180). TL;DR the Naked and Famous company is going down while APC will go up.

TL;DR If you want to save around $30 get Naked and Famous, if you want good construction, prominence, and a sure fire fit get APC.

The top button of my apc`s fell off the day I got them, and I only sized down 2(NS)

I've had experience with both. With $300, I say go bargain hunting and get a pair from both brands. But my honest opinion on it: APC for the cut, N&F for the material. I prefer APC because it fits a lot better, and they're just more comfortable compared to my Deep Indigo's.
May 28, 2012 @ 06:35:51
Dude with 300 you can get samurais, pbj, momotaro (i would recommend the grand indigo), flat head, sugar cane... the list goes on. dont waste your money on any of those brands unless you can find them for a really cheap price
May 28, 2012 @ 13:39:38
I agree with APC being the better cut. I wrote off N&F because I couldn't find a perfect cut for me. the skinny guy's rise is too low while the weird guy's thigh is too big.

Come on, too biased a viewpoint surely.

Both are good denim, just that the newer APCs are made in macau while the NFs are made in canada. As for denim the source for APC is kind of unknown and undisclosed, while NFs are japanese denim.

APCs fit slimmer i guess in general, but it depends on your leg size as well. Also, the fading is alot different if you ask me, most APCs fade overall (that kind of vintage blue overall fades) while you get mostly more contrasty imo.
And my NF's construction is fine, no problems with it so far.

i need new jeans 0_0

My new APC NS is made in Vietnam.
June 30, 2012 @ 20:30:48
Ive had both N&F and APC... DEF GO N&F!!!

My lat pair of APC's actually made me miss my weird guys, the only downside to naked and famous is the comfortability. They are reallyyyy tough to break in but as far quality goes N&F is leaps and bous ahead of APC. They also have more options and collaborations if you are looking to spend 300
