hello, using a friends account to post an inquiry.planning to get APC PS.i am a size 32 in gap raw skinny.weigh about 155 lbs.should i get size 30? btw,should i soak it when i get it or wear them at once.sorry,new to apc.


PS is pretty small. I would suggest you try on a 30 and a 31. I tried on a sized down two and it didn't fit but my body is different than yours.


thanks,as i have been backreading it seems to not matter if could not close the buttons down initially as i wear them for the first time.other people find that the buttons eventually do close all the way up after a few weeks of wear.

did the 30 you tried on not fit at all through your legs?i will probably try both.i am worried as to try the better fitting one (probably the 31) and pull the trigger only to regret it later if it stretches/loosens up down the road.

thank you for reply.

any suggestions about soaking upon initial purchase?

For reference I'm 150 5'6'' but I got thick legs, and the 30's didn't fit very well when I tried them on. I'm not a fan of wearing jeans so tight at first that you can't button it, I'd rather have little room and wear a belt. If you can you should really try them on and see. As for soaking some people soak and others don't before wearing. I personally just wear them and soak when needed.

do these jeans rip easily?

If you sit like an asshole, any type of denim would.

true waist 31 you think sizing down to a 29 on a ps would be uncomfortable around the waist?
October 21, 2012 @ 23:16:17
does anyone have a 29 PS that could measure the waist when its all stretched out
October 22, 2012 @ 01:16:28
waist will stretch out in a matter of days.

@frunk you stay bringing the help smokeyface i just checked online and they do carry them, ima check it out next weekend thanks bro

Bout it, Bout it

October 22, 2012 @ 03:17:13
Major - a size 29 measures 31 so no it shouldn't be uncomfortable. Then with the stretch, you'll be alright
October 22, 2012 @ 03:33:56
true waist is a 32. If I'm going for a slim fit should I get a 31 or 30? Judging on what I tried on, a 32 is what I want, but i'm afraid it will stretch too big, a 31 is a little tight but will stretch and the 30 was tight. EDIT: Talking about PS.

help much appreciated.

What's the best way to wash apc ps without losing color and to actually clean the jeans?
October 22, 2012 @ 22:21:53
^ Soak in Woolite

^ok thanks
but also i have a pair of washed(they came washed example of washed apcs) apc ps that are dirty, can washing affect any loss of color or anything, or is it ok to just throw them in the washing machine inside out?

Those already look pretty light, so I don't think washing would have a huge effect. For washed denim just throw them in the washing machine as usual. Woolite is always your a swer for retaining color, and washing inside out will help too. But as I said they already look like a pretty light wash so color probably wont be affected much.

lolwat
if you're doubting the quality in one of the biggest company that's known for their raw denim then you should just buy wrangler jeans or something.

"if we think the quality of jeans comply with the price" lulzy

If you want a personal experience kinda thing, I'd prefer my APCs over my 710s. Happy?

Blong you ain't bout that raw denim lifestyle

Spank, I liked that answer you gave about having that personal experience.

I'm loving mine so far and haven't worn them much so can't say how they'll withstand abuse. I know I can get jeans for a lot less with probably better quality but there wouldn't be that personal experience with them. And in reality APC's aren't really that expensive. I find the average price of jeans to be between $80 and $150.

Blong, just buy a pair. Later on if you find out that it was a waste of money then just sell them or take it as a learning experience

I personally cannot justify the outrageous prices for denim. The premium attached w/ most brands rests in the brand itself. Sure you can make a case for craftsmanship and design, but in the end, they are just made out of 'cotton'!

I've had a pair of APC when they had a promotion and felt like the jeans were durable and sturdy, but the cutting wasn't really to my likings. The jeans did feel durable though. But after wearing my nudies for about a year, I began to understand that fitting and branding go hand in hand to some degree.

I'm not knocking APCs, but my next purchase would another pair of nudies.

Ripping easy? People whose jeans rip easily are sizing down way too much.

Jeans don't rip easily, let alone pants in general. They rip easy because you are sizing them down way too much!

I've never had any jeans rip on me, and I've sized down in them, but not in an absurd way. You can size 1 size down, but when you start doing 2 sizes w/o understanding the cut, you're asking for it.

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.
October 23, 2012 @ 22:27:43
Anyhow, I came back to ask about the APC petite standard. My first APC pair were the new standards, and it was slightly tapere, and stretched out a lot. Granted, I've lost some weight over the years. APC still look like they give people that bubble butt though. LOLZ blushing

Would the petite standard be a good choice or should I try new cure? Might want to get the inseam hemmed though, so curious to know if there are actually retailers that will do this as well.

If anyone knows of any promotions, please let me know as well.

Thank you guys.

My shit costs $175 soooo. Not a fan of Nudies at all, had one pair and will not go back ever. And you're right, price doesnt mean style but does that mean that I won't progress into heavier/sturdier and slubbier denim in time? Naw.
