The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

October 27, 2012 @ 06:40:48
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,

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.

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.

Just got my apc ps tagged 28 sized down 2 I can button all 4

@Siphonin, those will stretch perfectly. Just sit down for a bit.

Nudie don't have a lot more trim to pick from, half of there jeans aren't even raw/selvedge.

Nudies has tons of trims and fits. I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure each of their cuts has a raw version.
October 28, 2012 @ 01:32:22
I'm saying that they don't have a big selection of raw stuff, assuming that's what we are talking about.
edit: most of their denim is like 12.5oz, weak stuff
October 28, 2012 @ 01:49:51
To be fair since we are in the APC thread. There are 4 cuts in two different colors, indigo and black. That makes 8 raw denim cuts. Nudie has over 4 cuts each with a raw version and more than one raw too. Like dry twill, or organic cotton. I'm not following your argument lol...
October 28, 2012 @ 02:10:54
My argument sucks, overall I'm trying to say nudies blow
(Nudie has 7 raw selvedge fits if I'm interpreting their site correctly)

Alright I need a honest opinion in the form of a intervention on my NS. Excuse my shitty Berry pics.

To hem or leave alone? Going on two months of consistent on and off wear. Size 36. I am 5'6. Thought settling or a wash in the future would help decision. I'm a noob in NS.

October 31, 2012 @ 22:20:14
just got these in. first I could only button up 2 but after an hour of sitting I could button all the way up. will they stretch a lot in the legs? cause i kinda like em this way
October 31, 2012 @ 22:35:01
@mlwdp definitely take a hem, it looks like you could lose about 2-3 inches and still stack. they'll settle more naturally too
November 02, 2012 @ 13:49:18
if anyone is interested in purchasing a pair of tagged 28' petit standards.
only worn about 2-3 times; please message me.
November 03, 2012 @ 04:05:02
Really nice fit there Paulyy !!

They shouldn't stretch out too much . I found a pic on some guys blog or something the other night and his fit pretty much stayed the same the day 1 pic to the after 1 year pic....could've been because of a wash or something, not sure
November 03, 2012 @ 06:47:14
hey how do NC's stretch compared to NS? i'm trying to get something with a little less knee bulge and i also washed my NS too early :/

Be about it

PS sz 27 down two.
First wear


About 2 months of wear





There's not really any evo but also there isn't much stretching. Maybe I didn't size down enough for them to stretch like crazy as some members describe APCs to stretch. Deciding on hemming or not
November 05, 2012 @ 07:13:32
No offense but how can you even expect any stretching with an initial fitting like that? =/
