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.
I don't think that answered my question as to the value of the material compared to the past, or if they changed their material at all.  But, good to know i guess

Interested in purchasing some APCs. What fit would be best for stacking from the knee down with a slim thigh opening ? Also, how should I size down to ensure some good stacking?

i've been wearing the macao batch for about 7-8 months and no problem at all. the quality is there and i doubt you'll be wearing the same jeans in 2-3 years from now.

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.
my thighs are exactly the same so i'm not sure what to buy. are those clarks desert boot by the way? the look different

Those are beeswax clarks. They don't look the same because he probably just put them on for the pic. They look brand new

Picked up my first ever raw denim from APC in Osaka. The store clerk was very helpful and told me to size down to 30 but I settled on a 31, which I now regret. I remember him saying that I could wash them once to maybe shrink it a little if I needed to.

Here in Japan the washing machines only use cold water, would this even help to shrink?

You SHOULD wash your raw denim in cold water and it does shrink slightly from a wash. I'd personally hand wash them though.

This. the warmer the water, the more they shrink...but they usually won't shrink too much. and tbh you probably should have listened to the clerk, those people must help hundreds of people size on their APCs which seems to be a difficult enough task without experience.

I just got my petite standards in size 28, they fit just perfect. Should I exchange them for a 27 because they will most likely stretch a ton
Aug 21, 2013 @ 20:31
Hey guys need help with sizing and fit, I wear a 34 in Levi 511's and I want to get some APC's. What size and fit should i get? Im in the process of dropping weight too if thats a factor.

Quick question about inseam- if waist sizes 25-30 come with an inseam of 32-34 does this mean I can opt for either an inseam of 32 or 34 in this size range? Or is it just the smaller sizes that go down to a 32 inseam ? I'm 5'4 and worried about the 34 inseam and paranoid about getting them hemmed lol. I also want them to be long enough to stack, but not too long, around 31-32 inseam. 
Aug 23, 2013 @ 23:37
Dead at 5'4". Anyway, the inseam is contingent on the waist size of the jawnz. For instance according to Context, a size 25 has a 33" inseam.

Not sure whether I should size up or not. This is pns size 31 which is sized 2 down. Have worn them as much as possible the past four days and twice to bed. Will these stretch out anymore mainly in the calves because they are real tight in the calves. Should I just exchange them and stop wasting time trying to see if they'll stretch out?

 I know for a fact that they will stretch out to be a good fit, its just a matter of if your willing to walk around in girl jeans for 2 or more weeks

Size up one or two sizes. Those 100% will not stretch enough to stop looking like girls jeans.

If youre going from NS to PNS either TTS or size up. ALSO if you dont plan on trying on before purchasing (or purchasing online) please double check the measurements. KNEES, ANKLES, RISE, hem is typically always 34

I thought the verdict was to size down 1 or 2 for apc's. Also thought these were extremely stretchy so when I measured the jeans I own now and compared then to apc I anticipated some stretch. I exchanged the 31 for 32 and the 32 measures the same as my slimmest jean. So how much stretch can come from the knee and thigh .5 inchs?
Aug 28, 2013 @ 22:13
I wouldn't worry about stretching as much as initial fit. Just make sure that they're tight, almost uncomfortaly tight. and if you're gonna make an account for a forum to ask about denim, might as well head over to rawrdenim

Also spray some febreeze on it and let it air out for 2 days or so, preferably some place well-ventilated and in the sun.
