The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

December 14, 2012 @ 17:56:48
Two years ago i bought a pair of new standards and treated them like a new born baby. 3 months ago i bought another pair and have been treating them like an abused spouse. wear your fucking jeans. get them dirty. ride your bike in them. i wear mine to work six days a week and put 15+ hours a day into them. abuse is the key.
Truth. There's so many people out there who try to give you a guide on how to wear raw denim and end up overcomplicating everything. 

Button em up, give em hell, wash when you can't stand how dirty they are (you'll know when it's time)

i'm 5'11 and 155ish. i wear 32/30 levi 511's right now, but they are a little too loose and a little too short. i'm not sure what size PS's to order. there aren't any stores anywhere near me. i tried to measure my true waist and it was around 33". any advice? i wonder if i could fit into 29's because the inseam being 34. because 30's are a 36 inseam right?

Hell in a hand basket.

Order a 30. If you're 5'11 you can handle the stacking on the longer inseam.

APCs aren't chain stitched so you can probably take them to any tailor and get them hemmed to the exact length you want for $10-15 without them looking any different. Don't let the inseam deter you from getting the waist size you need.

Thighs wont stretch THAT much, but over time they will loosen up to be comfortable..

My Petit New Standards were extremely tight at first, sized down to 30 from 32, and now they fit perfectly.

Just got a pair of PSs at Norse Store for $140. I sized down 3 but don't know if they'll fit until they ship. Oh the suspense...

Hey, I'm new here and these are my first pair of APC PS, I was wondering how do they look so far because my brother told me I have too much stacks and told me to hem them, but I heard it is frown upon among some members with hemming them. I would appreciate your feedback/thoughts on them, thanks!

just cuff them up a little. dont hem them. cuffing will make them a little shorter and plus they make them look a lot better just in general.

Fuck yall

December 19, 2012 @ 05:09:26
Ehhh, you could get away with cuffing them once or twice.

tried on a pair of 32 NS and they were tight but i could button em up pretty easy. but i was thinking id want more of a tapered look, so i was considering the PS but maybe going up to a 33? i have bigger legs so thats why i was thinking of sizing up. would that work?
December 20, 2012 @ 01:10:34
I would stay with the 32s but go with PS. Ideally, you want to take the same waist size and use the cuts to determine the leg/taper

my friend is stressing about the creases around the calf/leg area. he's had them for about a week, should he iron them or just let the jeans naturally settle down?

Lol at ironing. Just wear them, they'll settle

Your "friend" should just let them be.
December 20, 2012 @ 03:57:55
Has anyone sized down 3 and broken in their jeans? Deciding if I should exchange my 27 PS' for 28s.
December 20, 2012 @ 04:01:19
Finally realized them tight ass jeans was too small huh

Na, I like tight jeans and my NS' stretched a lot. Just not familiar with PS.
December 20, 2012 @ 07:26:12
how much do thighs stretch out? on PS, if it matters.

Very nice....I like this fit.

i'm guessing they shrank a good amount after the hot soak? that's a great fit.
December 21, 2012 @ 05:56:06
here are the pics I was posting about earlier, has this happened to anyone else?











put some other pics of my fadez, about a year and 4 or 5 months maybe more or maybe less I cant remember. I think im gonna finish out the winter in them and then hold them till I go to the beach and do a beach soak and than hem them and than work on a pair of brand new APC PS I got.
--bump, any ideas?
December 21, 2012 @ 08:19:44
Are you trolling? You apply constant wear to a certain part of your jeans, that part breaks down and malfunctions. It really is not rocket science.
December 21, 2012 @ 23:14:25
Went with the 32 in the PS. I tried on the 33 and that's how I'd like them to fit in the thigh eventually. So I hope I made the right choice. A little snug but theyll be fine.
