The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

Apr 24, 2013 @ 19:07
Hey guys, I'm a noob here getting my first APCs. I have two questions:

1. I am a 32 in N&F WG and I'm thinking of getting the Petite New Standards. What size would you guys recommend I get?

2. Would I need to size down? Has APC updated their size tagging, or should I still size down 1-3 sizes?

Also, where is the cheapest place online I can get this?

Thanks
i'm not familiar iwth N and F sizing, but it's safe to just take your normal jean size, like levis or soemthing you'd buy off the shelf at JC PENNEYS lol, and just size down 2.  if it's a 32 for you, 30 is fine.  i went down 3 with a NS, i'm a 30 wearing a 27 and they're very tight but it works and i think i'll be happy in another few months when they really stat to break in (it's been about 4 months).  cheapest place online?  im' not sure.  look around.  youre gonna end up paying around the same price unless you wait til they go on sale, im not sure when that is either.  again, i got mine from context and i think shipping was $10, they got here in 2 days.

  by the way, all these type of questions and more would be answered if you just read say the past 20-30 pages of this thread.  
i downsized two sizes and fit like a charm, at first they will be tight and uncomfortable but wait it out and will fit great

how are petit new standards? new standards are too baggy below calf petit are too tight due to low rise

Get 'em repaired if you can. Not a good look to be one of those dudes that walks around with a blown-out crotch.

Just a tip,

i left my apcs out in the sun for about a day to get rid of the smell and they also shrunk (same effect as a dryer)

no color fade and no smell. 

would recommend doing that if you want to shrink them without having to wash/ shower method

Be about it

Trying to find some new or used new standards. I usually wear a 32 in regular denim and even they have a slight give. Should I be looking at a 30 or 31?
