Just got my New Standards back from Denim Therapy.
That's some neatly-done repair work (from the outside view, at least). Is that guaze material really an effective reinforcement? I got mine repaired at USA 501 and they just did darning--no reinforcement-- and now they need repaired again 3 months later on the areas surrounding the repairs. I'm trying to decide if I should ask them to reinforce them this time, and if so with what...Originally posted by Inactive UserJust got my New Standards back from Denim Therapy.
just use measurement charts, you can find some at the context clothing website and account for some stretch in the waistOk, I've been told to size down 2 sizes with the petite standards due to stretching, does that same method apply with the new cures? Do they stretch at all?

I believe if you take them to any A.P.C. boutique, they will take them and sell you a new pair for half the price. But if that is not what you are looking to do, I would take them to a place that does alterations where they can patch them or do whatever needs to be done. That would probably be cheaper?Hey everyone,
I picked up a pair of Petit New Standards about 4 months ago and I have having some significant problems already.
I have been wearing them close to everyday for the last 4 months and I have been seeing some excellent fading and the fit is now perfect (sz 30, sized down 2) but I already have a crotch blow out something else that I have never seen. The stitch line going down from the J stitch to the actual legs blew out as well as the arch stitch on the actual legs. The fit I have is great and I love the jeans but frankly this is rather disappointing for me considering it has only been 4 months.
I want to get this repaired but not sure who to send them to. I live in Konstanz, Germany and I would be willing to travel to get these repaired.
If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear. Maybe this is just a fluke with APC? Pretty disappointing considering they cost 145 euro.
just do a warm soak with some woolite black. your fades will be chillinHey, I bought my APC's back in mid February of this year and have been wearing them every days since. I work at a bar and have been wearing the crap out of them. They have obviously gotten pretty dirty and I am very tempted to wash them now even though I am about one month and a half away from my 6 month goal of not washing them. However since I have actually worn them all day every day since buying them (except fot maybe 5 days) I feel like they probably have more wear than many people who have owned them longer than I have. Should I wash them now or hold out another month or two for extra nice results?

Measure your waist with a measuring tape and whatever that number is, size down 1. You can't compare the sizes you wear in other jeans with what you'll wear with APC's.Originally posted by Inactive UserThanks for all the useful info here. I have been flirting with getting a pair of Petit Standards for awhile. A friend of mine says to size down 2 but I went to a store to find a pair, and while they didn't have the petits in stock I tried on the New Standards in 31 (I'm regularly a size 32) and they didn't even come close to fitting. They said they wont be getting any stock anytime soon so online is my only option. I'm a little gun shy to order the 32 size seeing as everyone sizes down. Any advice here?
Waist looks tight to me hah, did you size down from your regular at all? also looks like you'd be able to get away with another size down, all down to preference bud.Originally posted by Inactive UserNot sure how active this board is, but could I get a fit check on these 32 New Standards? My ass and thighs are really big for my waist so I'm having trouble finding raws that fit. Right now, the waist is loose on these, but I don't think I could go down a size for the butt and thighs, any advice?(Invalid img)

the fades come out well, the knee bulges can be minimized if you do it properly and although the jeans do get tears, it adds character to your pair.Are the recent APC denim materials still good quality? I've been hearing from someone that they sourced their denim elsewhere now, and the quality isn't as good. Anyone have any ideas on this? I figured they were still sourcing from Kaihara.
