Hey, guys! I'm thinking about purchasing my first pair of A.P.C.s (Petit Standards to be exact) and I had a few inquries about them. To help, my profile is 6'1 150lbs, a very slim build with long legs. I love Dillion's Skinny Bullheads fit and Levi's 510. I wear 32 x 32, but I like to stack with a 32 x 34. 

So my questions are as followed:

1. Should I wait until the fall or buy them in the summertime? I know you can't wash them for as recommended as 6 months, so I wouldn't want to walk around with my ass smelling like Sosa's morning lip. 

2. How do the Petit Standards fit? And how do I correctly size down? I like to pinch roll my jeans for my runners and Vans. Will these give the skinny to tapered look?

3. Can anyone post pictures of their Petits so I can see if it's the fit I actually want? I live in Michigan, so there's not many available try-on spots. I just don't want to drop a couple bands on some jeans that I might have to end up returning. 

Thanks in advance!
I got you man!! I'm just over 6'3" and 175 lb. so I have the same tall and slender build. My measured waste size was a 34. You're supposed to size one down because APC waste sizing is just bigger than normal, then size down another to accommodate for stretching, so in the end I ordered a pair of 33 PS, because I too was going for the general skinny/tapered look. The other option would be NC which has a bigger rise, thigh, and a little more of a flare near the hem, so the PS is I think what you're looking for. If you want specific measurements just use this link and compare the measurements to some of your levi's or whatever.

As for when to buy? I have no clue I just ordered mine and they should be coming in tomorrow, I'm not too worried about getting super bargains because I'm currently seeing a steady flow of money

And if you can wait till I get off of work tomorrow I'll post some fit pics of my PS straight out the packaging. 



These are SUPER tight and SUPER stiff, but its not like I didn't know they would be. Hopefully they stretch really quickly, bout to start running stairs to break em in faster sad

WELL HERE THAT MOTHERFUCKER IS

^ exactly how my pair was. After about a month of wear you'll notice they won't be so stiff and will start to fit better

what do you guys think of the fit? size 30 petite new standards, sized down 2. after wearing for 2 days, i think i coudlve sized down 1 more possibly, though the petite standards wouldn't button for me in size 30 so i didn't want to bother trying the 29 for PNS.

I'd be really mad sad but just call Barneys and find out what kind of ink tag they use and which local retailers use the same kind and will take it off, but you'll need your receipt.

for me this was the case. i tried on size 30 for both PNS and PS. i could not button the waist for PS. but as far as i know, they both fit pretty similarly, maybe the PNS was a bit more tapered? also PNS was shorter in length by about 1.5 inches i think, which worked out for me

Yeah they're soo much more comfortable today, and the waste has definitely stretched atleast 2 sizes, the legs are starting to stretch nicely, and I can see the whisker and comb creases forming or whatever. Wore 'em to work as an intern which means I'm always going around getting stuff from/ for people so that helped. Overall, I'd actually consider these pants to be somewhat comfortable today. I might post a fit pic later if I find the motivation/ energy.

honestly, 265 for a pair of kanye jeans is pretty ridiculous considering you can get the same ones at H&M for 35$
