The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

what would honestly matter by getting rid of the selvedge.  To have a better fit, I'd definitely do it
Personally it's a big deal to me - the selvedge (at least the visible part) is a big part of the aesthetic and what sets it apart from regular jeans.
no no no no

Selvedge, its the edge of the fabric and its been properly stitched to last the longest, if you just cut it off and chain stitch it, the denim loses alot of its integrity.. If you buy a pair of APCs and cut off the selvedge you just lost a good amount of money. 

been wearing my ps on and off for nearly 2 weeks now, why doesnt it fit comfortable yet!!!!
What made you think that 2 weeks was enough? Get your shit together bruh. Stop bitching. Just wear em. I'm about 6 months in and they're my most comfortable jeans. Its not an overnight thing b. Just wear em as much as you can, soon enough you'll find yourself not wanting to take them off. 

WELL HERE THAT MOTHERFUCKER IS

So I ordered a pair of APC PS in sz 30 (sized down 2). These were preowned and the previous owner claimed to have worn them for about a month. There are no signs of fading at all, but they seem to be broken in pretty well, especially in the waist.

The only problem I am having is that the calf area seems to be a little tighter than I expected. The taper is so tight to the point where it takes a few tugs to get my foot through. So my question is, will the below-the-knee area strech out anymore?

Also, how long do APC's take to form to your body? Even though the previous owner said to have worn them for about a month daily, are they still able to form to my body or did they already form to his from his previous wear?

sizing down is overrated imo

i bought my new standards TTS and they fit great. not baggy or skin tight.  to each his own!

^^ sizing down is only because the waist stretches so much...... no one wants jeans that are 2+ inches too big in the waist

It's going to take longer than 2 weeks. My st100x just started feeling good and Im about 7 months in. Give it some time and wear. 

I had taken the words out of his mouth and filled it with fart.

is it true that you should never wash them because they will shrink then? (only soak)

opinions?

You can wash them, just use coldest setting + low spin cycle. but soak > wash if they not to stinky.

Edit: they look good tho

What APC model is most similar to N&F Weird Guy?
March 11, 2014 @ 01:06:46
APC's PNS size 30. Normally wear 32's in levis so sized down 2. Hopefully it stretches a little in the thighs soon and then it'd be perfect.

So just bought a size 29 PNS from Barneys and they button all the way up but are tight. I tried on a 28 beforehand and could only button up the bottom two buttons. Should I just go back and get the 28?

I also bought a pair of PNS I usually wear sz.31 and got a sz.30. I tried the 30 on and I fits tight on the thighs It's like a PS fit.. Will it stretch I thought PNS is more Slim fit/looser a bit than the PS. I can't return them in Barneys online it's way passed 30 days already. I'm 5'10" 160 pretty fit I don't have skinny thighs lol Should I haves gotten a 31 instead or will it stretch in the thighs ?

I think you should get the 29 you can't even button all the way up how are you gonna wear it if you can't even button it all the way up ? With an open fly ? Size down 1 from your original waist sz.
