Hi guys, I don't have a picture but I tried on the NS 30 inches at the a.p.c shop today and im a 32-33 inches TTS. I can only button the last 2 buttons

Is it alright? I also tried 31 inches and it fit me real well, baggy to an extent actually. So it's either a baggy 31 inches or a 2 button 30inches.

Depends on what your true waist is. You could probably get away with a 31 New standard, the waist might be tight but it will stretch out and a 32 for New Cures would suit you but if you got thick legs New Cures are slimmer than NS since they taper while NS is pretty much straight leg.

Need some help choosing the right fit... Wearing 501s 31x32 and those fit a little baggy for me, particularly in the calf area. True waist is a 30, I was either thinking a 28 New Standard or 29 Petite New Standard. Should i just run into the LA APC store and get help there?
Edit: Looking for a slim-loose fit, nothing skinny

Yes

Oct 25, 2012 @ 06:32
Are you serious?? Think about it man...You would rather have people guess at would fit you best for the type of fit you're looking for rather than just going to the store and trying them on?? You're a fucking moron.

Chill out. He's just gauging what he should try. Drop some knowledge if you have any.

NS and PS will be very different. Depends on how you want your fit, your comparisons in my opinion are almost at the end of each spectrum. If you want a fit most similar to 501 I'd say get the New Standards, but if you think they're baggy in the calf area and you don't want that stay away from NS then. If you want a smaller fit but not super tight then get New Cures. Yes your best bet would be to go to APC in LA and try it on though.

Guarantee you half of the people who post questions in here have NOT read the VERY FIRST post by the original poster. Lots of information and questions answered. Just saying. blushing

How long does nordstrom take to ship these? it's been a week so far and the tracking info hasn't updated
Oct 26, 2012 @ 01:59
I've never seen PS fit baggy like this.

how do i size to achieve this look for petit standards?
http://www.thirdlooks.com/2012/10/style-profile-ackime/

im 5'8", 143 pounds on a normal day, 147 on a heavy day. im in between choosing 29/30/31. probably a 30... but maybe 31?

I wear w+h chinos size 30 (31 inch waist)
Diors 19cm size 30 (32 inch waist)

Oct 26, 2012 @ 03:40
You'd probably want a 31 to have them that loose. That or get 29/30 New Standards instead.
Oct 26, 2012 @ 04:06
some might think I had an attitude or something but really...you say to drop some knowledge?? All that info can be found in the past 10 pages or the FIRST page. Plus the guy says he can go to the strore....so go! Most people can't try them on so they come to forums and ask.

All sites that I've visited allows for returns, might be store credit but they offer exchanges. So you wont really know how they fit till you actually try them on. Read a few pages and get idea of what size you should get..order pair, try them on...if they don't fit, exchange them! BOOM! Now you got a pair that fits

A.P.C. New Standards with about 5 weeks of wear.



The last two pictures are a better look at the fades, but they're more prominent in person.

You're absolutely silly. I've been here for about 6 years unofficially, I think I know a thing or 2 about this whole 'trend' thing. But if you have something to say, then say it, but if not, you sound naive and worst than a willing amateur.

You do not need $300-$800 jeans to look good, nor feel good.


At the same time, Nudies are still ASS. Hell i would rather buy a pair of Levis than Nudies. Them shits is weak

what's the point of 200$ jeans. I've worn 70$ Volcom jeans my whole life and never had a problem with quality. If it's like a brand thing I get that, but you guys keep talking about quality. Is there actually a significant difference between 200$ jeans and the shit you get at a skate shop. I don't mean this as a criticism or anything. this is a legitimate question because I was considering buying some name brand jeans.

There is a difference, but let's just say, the majority of the mark up rests in the brand.
The issue here is the fact that some are big headed and naive, when they look down on others. At that point, I don't give if they wear $20K jeans, they are jerks!

Again, it's not the clothes, but the person.

Generally speaking though, the whole point about raw denim is the fact that they conform to your body.
Oct 27, 2012 @ 06:33
is raw denim more comfortable130$ worth?
Oct 27, 2012 @ 06:40
i think that's subjective. like i was trying to say, i felt like my nudies were my comfortable. a lot of guys here and elsewhere equate quality and weight. they think that tight fitting jeans will give them nice results, and so they subject themselves to torment.

going back to my opinion. i think that nudies are much more comfortable than APCs, granted nudies have a lot more trims to choose from. in the end, it's what you find worthwhile.

i have both nudies and apc,
Oct 27, 2012 @ 06:43
My APCs were made in MACAU, not sure of them now a days, so you can't really attach the same premium/prestige as you would expect. If they were really from PARIS, I'd look at them differently.
Oct 27, 2012 @ 07:10
applesauce - raw denim isn't as comfortable as pre washed jeans when they're new since they're kinda stiff. Something as light as APCs are pretty comfy when new tho since they're light weight.

As far as quality goes, you'll probably not notice the difference from some cheaper brand from like a skate shop. I do know BullHead is garbage and belt loops will tear right off with the slightest tug.

I only have APC and Naked & Famous at the moment but all I use to wear was Abercrombie and Levi's and between those brands the quality was pretty much all the same. But Higher end japanese brands that are normally considered heavy weight jeans are going to have better quality since the fabric is going to be more durable being thicker and all. Also with the japanese brands they're pretty serious about quality and details.

Lots of the price does come from the brand name but also how the denim is made, dyed, and constructed. You skate jeans are massed produced and they don't really care about all the little details.
