hey hypebeast first post! ><
just a quick question so i got apc petit standards around during june...after a month my mom washed my apc without my knowledge...ive been wearing them since..and the fades are really light and not very constrasted..did that wash screwed up the whole breaking process?
i might get new standards too ...how much should i size down..
Nope, just keep wearing them hard and try to resist washing for a long time. The general guideline is to wait 6+ months but that "rule" can be altered and modified however the wearer pleases. As long as you wear hard, fades will show.
i've been wearing a pair of apcs for 10 months. They don't smell and are still in pretty good shape (crotch has a bit of breakdown). I want them to start fading more but was wondering the advantages and disadvantages of washing them now versus waiting til the get a bit dirtier.
The longer you can resist washing them the better the contrast fades will turn out ideally. If they don't stink and aren't completely disgusting by now, then there (kinda) isn't a reason to wash em just yet.
