The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

*Disclaimer* I've gone numerous pages back, and have had a bit of a hard time finding a good summary or discussion around the actual first wash verse soak argument. I'm sure that it exists - but haven't stumbled on much aside from size questions/discount questions/ and pics. That being said: My Jeans: Had a pair of APC Petite New Standards for 2.5 years. Wore them sporatically for the first year and a half (maybe once a week) - and have been wearing them a bit more of late (3-4 times a week) - regardless, they are ready for their first wash (or soak). My Question: Can someone break down the difference between the various options on the table, and the results that come with them? I'm trying to understand the effect on the jeans when taking the following options: Cold Soak - Hot Soak - Ocean Wash - Washing Machine- My understanding is that for the minimal indigo being removed - I should go with a 'cold' option. From what I've seen, I shouldn't use soap, unless its Woolite Dark? And I should "air dry" the jeans regardless of the approach I take. If anyone could post pics of "pre" and "post" first wash/soaks - that'd be helpful as well. Anyway, 'preciate any responses!

[Image] Not interested in any trades, thank you. $5 to ship shirts, $7 to ship hats. Neither shirt has been worn, only the one has the tags (as shown). Let me know your offers! Thanks...

OK - APC Question regarding washing. I've had my APC New Standards since September of 08 - but pretty much only wear them on the weekends due to work on Mon-Fri. I'm getting ready to wash them, but am curious of the different effects that cold soaks, hot soaks, and full on washes have on the denim. Can someone break down the differences? Appreciate it!

What up everybody. So I'm going to the Chi town for my first time in a couple of weeks. What are some items that you all would reccomend to a visitor aside from the standard, straight touristy joints (Wrigley, Sears, Deep dish). Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Good looks....

Game - The R.E.D. Album - June 15, 2010

I was just vibing out to some of Game's last few cd's earlier this afternoon. Dude is a bit of a nut/bi-polar, but he makes great music. Probably has one of the best ear for beat's in the game.... been steppin' his lyrics/wordplay up a bit lately - you know you're still going to get the name-dropping, but i guess I can live with that...

2 the dude above, yea, APC has a flagship in LA...its right off of Melrose (Cotner Street I think?) Pretty close to the Beverly Center.... Anyway, my question is for ppl that have APC's, and have already begin washing them. I've had my Petit Standards for 6 months now...only wear them 2-3 times a week since I work quite a bit, but when the time comes, what is the best way to wash them so that I can obtain more of a royal color with white fades? Not sure if that question is clear to anyone, but i see a lot of ppl who wash theirs, and the jeans take on more of a navy blue/tan fade.... Should I : Machine Wash and Machine Dry Hand Wash and Air Dry Wash inside out in the machine... etc etc... I know its sort of a weird/wack question, but any help is appreciated. i probably won't end up washing them for awhile, but when i do, i just want to go about getting the right results....
