The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

Jan 29, 2009 @ 21:39
Im a fairly short person and I just purchased a pair of PS. I know the default length is 34, but I was thinking maybe I should go down to 32 ish? It wont really matter if I hem it a little correct? I can still stack regardless. Im just gonna do a cheap hem, i dont care about euro, but I hard how it ruins the self edge O_O. It only matters if you cuff though right?
once you hem you cant go back..it would be ridiculously troublesome

Then NS and PS will be your best bet. Or even Rescues.

Some questions. Alright so I purchased A.P.C. new standards and sized down too 29 (I wear 31-32) as I heard they stretched a lot. I hemmed them from 32 too 30, as I do sag but don't like od stacking. Initially, they were tight too the point of being uncomfortable and hard too button, but that has gotten better. What is keeping me wondering, why aren't they stacking like all of yours. The back seems so straight legged. Any suggestions

i caught that too

maybe he copped em used? i dunno

erkay, i keep reading and reading and reading.. and now i is are confused..

My understanding is that apc's translate roughly like this (compared loosely to levi's):

Rescue- Levi's "Relaxed" Fit
NS- Levi's 501's
NC- Levi's 514's/Slim
PS- Skinny

Plz to correct me if i are wrong. I'm trying to get some NS if infact they are pretty similar to 501's.

It's not so hard.

Rescue - relaxed.
NS - straight leg.
PS - straight/slim.
NC - slim.

I don't know how to translate it into Levi's, but that's that.
Jan 29, 2009 @ 23:41
i would call NC ...skinny not slim

nc are skinnier then ps
Jan 29, 2009 @ 23:48
nc are skinnier then ps


Yes.

If we were to make a line diagram for your (sasquach) better understanding, it would look like this:

Ranging from loosest on the left to skinnier on the right:

Rescue ------- New Standard ------ Petite Standard ------ New Cure.

hard to guage from that diagram
Jan 30, 2009 @ 08:35
i thought new cure is the skinniest/smallest?

yeah new cure is more tapered compared to the PS... that diagram is either wrong or swapped around
Jan 30, 2009 @ 11:38
i think the leg opening of the ps is a bit smaller than the nc, according to the context charts
Jan 30, 2009 @ 13:31
Like I said..the diagram is followed from context's measurements, i'm not sure if they are 100% accurate but it might help in anyway..

APC NC sized down 3, fit really tight on the waist, 2nd day of wearing, i think they could stretch out a lot more, how's the fit?
Jan 30, 2009 @ 14:20
okay.. so everybodys getting confused with the question which is "which is slimmer?" I feel that everybody is neglecting a factor, which is the rise. yeah, PS measurements make them techinically slimmer than NC's, but the rise on the NC's is higher. This means you will be wearing your denim higher, and in my past experience, when i wear them higher, they feel more tight because all the components of the denim will be higher on my body(if that makes any sense..). usually the lower rises don't feel as tight on my body as higher rise.

well that's my two cents.. not saying its right, but thats how i look at it and that's my experience with low/rise.
