I posted this in the APC thread, but figured I'd post it here too. Hope you guys don't mind...
"How did everyone do with their first A.P.C jeans? I'm deciding whether or not I should buy APC's now (making them my first high quality denim's) or should I practice on some Levi 501 STF's and buy these later on? I really like the APC jeans, but I'm worried that I'll mess up somehow - whether buying the wrong size, not soaking it correctly, or whatever.
I only have one pair of denim's right now, and it's the Levi 514's. So can someone please advise?"
I would just go for it if you want them. With APCs, soaking is optional, because the denim is sanforized, and people generally size down 2 from their true waist measurement for the best fit.
