The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

i never got around to showing a recent picture of my apcs but its cos i dont wear them anymore because theyre waay to small now. its a pair of NS tagged sz29 and i know i gained weight and even before the weight gain, it felt pretty tight on the thigh area even after a years worth of wear. ive decided on getting new ones, but i dont really know how to approach it, i want to avoid the super tightness in the thigh area so i was thinkin of sizing down just 1 on a pair of NS, but then i was thinking that maybe itll look too baggy on the leg area. would sizing down on a pair of PS give me the room i want in the thigh area but give me a smaller leg opening compared to a pair of NS one size down?

thanks but damn I just found out it's gonna be a 34 inseam


I'm 5'7

gonna have to find a tailor to hem it before i order


Just cuff or stack ... or both. There is no need for hemming.
Sep 25, 2011 @ 23:04
i've been wearing my petite standards for 2 months now. is it too late to hem it, or does it not matter? cuz theres a lot of stacking, and i kinda want less.

^ Go ahead and take them to the tailor.

Leave enough inseam for a (small) cuff.

I know for sure the PS is slimmer than the NS so if the NS you have in 29 are too tight in the thighs for you now and you want a slim leg, you probably want a 30 PS?

Does anyone know if they ever made GREY PS in raw? And if they did, do they stretch as much as the blue ones?

They only made indigo and black. The black jeans don't stretch out as much as the indigo.

I believe even sizing 2 down from a NS would still be baggier than a PS. If you are looking for a small leg opening with no tightness on the thigh, go to the APC store and put on the pair of jeans that you can button up with no room left. It is okay if it is a little tight, but you can't struggle to get the button buttoned. Same thing happened with me with the Petit Standards so I just got them true to size. Will post pics of the fit at 25 posts.

anyone have experience tapering their APC's?

i live in the sacramento area, and I'm wondering if I can just get my NS's tapered at your typical tailor (with good reviews on Yelp. lol)

They all look good, but why the jump from 30 to 32? Which did you like better and what's your true waist? Thanks!

I started bodybuilding, I got bigger and bigger and so I needed bigger jeans. My newest pair is size 34.
Sep 27, 2011 @ 21:49
i dont think you need to size down anymore...

24

Sep 27, 2011 @ 21:51
Great. I received my PS today but it seems as though I lost weight. I can button the top button with ease and I can fit my whole hand into my pants (pause).

I wanted them to fit like this...



but instead they fit a little baggier than this...




I bought a 30. Would sizing down one more to a 29 fit like I want it to? I plan on sending them back to context tomorrow.

Thank you in advance for your help!

honestly, these look good to me but if you want them to fit like the other ones, then size down one more. They're going to stretch either way, so it really is up to you...

Thanks for your input man. I think I'm going to go with a 29. Now I have to play the waiting game again.
