The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

i thought maybe the ocean wash would give it some coolness.

when you cold wash you apc first time, is it recommend to use detergent like Woolite Dark or just regular detergent? does it matter?
Apr 23, 2012 @ 22:31
i been wearing my apc petit standard for about 7 months and im thinking of soaking them in a couple months, but im kind of scared they will shrink in the waist considering they are already tight in the waist. how much will they shrink on the first soak?
Apr 24, 2012 @ 01:47
Did you soak them when you first got them? If you didn't they're going to shrink a lot, so definitely do that shit in cold water. Probably lose 1 to 2 sizes.

14 months. 29 tagged. 34 measured
Cold hand wash @ 8 months.
Cold machine wash @ 13 months. removed before spin cycle.

Absolutely love these jeans. Have cycled, partied, worked, played, dined, traveled, you name it. Second skin.


smokeyface ill, man. nice to see someone appreciative of their jawnz. i feel like now days, everyone is too worried about "if i size this way or that way"..."does the water have to be 15 or 25C when washing"... just wear, adapt, and love. props

hot soak = will shrink back to tagged size / how it was when you first bought them but will stretch back out really quick maybe after 1-2 days

cold soak = not much shrinkage

might have been answered but is there any possibility of fade with the black denim? ive had mine for almost a year (but havent worn them much) and they dont seem any different.

Black denim do fade, just takes a long ass time.

Hey guys. I'd like to get some opinions on denim. Let's start with my measures:

I'm 135 lbs (61kg), 5'8'' (174cm). My true waist (above belly button, slimmest part) is 28''. My jeans waist is a solid 30''. My thighs are 16'' around and my calves are 14'' around. I'm not as skinny as some of the guys here, but you can say im relatively skinny.

I recently just bought some APC Rescue in a size 28, they did not arrive yet, but those will be my working jeans so they are supposed to be sorta baggy.

I'd like to get another pair of APCs, this time I want a slim (not skin tight) fit, to be my "go out" jeans, something like this:




What APC model and size should I go for to achieve that? I definetely don't want skin tight calves (like i have on my current Thin Finn sized 2smokeyface, just a slim yet nice fit like from the person in the pic...

Also, just how baggy do you predict my recently purchased Rescues are going to look?

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the long post!

Same question. I wear 29x30 in 511's and I'm looking to get a pair of APCs with a similar fit.

Any pictures of the NC's? I've read A.P.C. is kinda picky on what they accept for the butler program. Like no wallet fades or some shit.

Yeah, when I read that it seemed strange that they wouldn't. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Solid fit on both pairs.

Dont see how playing it safe would be going TTS, but okay.

I wear 29s in 511s and i have 25 NS (no joke) but i also gained weight with them. They stretched to 30''. If ur 511s are pretty tight/slim then get 27

Looking for in size 8.5-9 003 Authentics/Chukka PM ME!
