The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

can anyone with experience tell me, is sizing down 3 for the new standard on some skin tight shit? or just slim.

I don't hate on ppl. that wear ++supreme dior vans. It's just the fact that almost everyone that wears that combo is a trend whore and must have the latest greatest thing.


I understand, but he is making the point that every one has APC when in fact tons of people who post here do. But most likely in his area, very few wear APC. Same goes with supreme dior vans

It fit pretty nice for me everywhere but the waist. I had to suck in my stomach and I'm fairly skinny (5'10, 140lbs). I had to sag to mid ass (lol) to get it to look right though. I would rather go with 2 sizes down though.


word. i'm 6'' and 165

think i might just go 2 down.

its like the hate on here for people with supreme dior vans. Because so many posters wear that. But in real life the population of poeple who wear supreme dior and vans are so minute. I see what your saying, tons of people in WDYWT are wearing APC. Its popular right now, but if your area had a WDYWT you think it would be the same/?


You fail to compare apple for apple. It would NOT make sense to compare a specific market demographic with a market thats not entirely equivalent. Why would you compare APC with someone who does not know what APC is, or someone who isn't even into denim to begin with?

APCs are being worn by SO MUCH people because of obvious reasons. The only explainable acceptable truth is because they fade kind of quick and are very easy to get 'creasings', 'looks', accepted and appreciated by many. I have not seen CMs work of arts, blue bloods work of arts or many other 'brands'. That's how it is. Instead people drool over $500 denim that's just totally a downstream value chain.

I like APCs, but the inseams still looks a lot longer, even with stacking. So I am NOT GOING to force myself onto it, until I work my NUDIEs, CMs.

^^ Give yourself a break. And you have a PHD in English?

It's just the forums! No big deal!
I didn't know syntax would matter to people. Waste time ! And if you've picked up 'novels' or 'books' in general, you'd find syntax and grammar in PUBLISHED TEXTS to be completely 'unacceptable on your terms'. ;)

But I don't wanna prolong the useless sling. \

Jan 31, 2008 @ 21:58
Anyone have experience with the new grey new standards? They look dope.
Feb 01, 2008 @ 11:19
It is the first time they are making them, so I doubt anyone has any experience with jeans that arent out yet.
Feb 01, 2008 @ 18:41
give it 6 months blushing
Feb 02, 2008 @ 22:54
So I think I'm gonna bite a bullet and just buy some APC Rescues. What y'all think of 125-ish? Mind you, I'm in Canada, so it'll probably be about 5-10 more.

I'm sizing down 1, to a 31.
Feb 04, 2008 @ 01:07
how do APC new standards and/or new cures fit compared to 511s?
Feb 05, 2008 @ 11:25
Can someone please post pictures of them selfs in raw black NS? Do the raw black NS have the selvage line?
Feb 05, 2008 @ 11:49
if i just wear my apc ns but dont really skate in them, how long should i wait before expecting to see decent wallet fades. I've been wearing them for about a month and im starting to see where they are coming in. Also, what is the best way to get honey combs?
Feb 05, 2008 @ 16:10
i wear my rescues casually and my wallet fade came quite quick imo
Feb 05, 2008 @ 16:33
anyone know any sites that have new standards in stock besides the apc site? they are $155 now on there >.<
shouldnt have slept on em for so long but have been working on my lvc's
Feb 05, 2008 @ 19:40
http://www.tobi.com/product/498-a-p-c-new-standard-in-raw-indigo-denim-skinny-tapered - 140 there, but the one of the few items you can't check stock/order online (call in for availability)

http://www.contextclothing.com/brands/apc/new_standard.php - 140 here too, but out of stock atm.
Feb 06, 2008 @ 16:58
so yeah, would New Standards be a similar fit to 511s? how much would i have to size down from my original waist size(33)?
Feb 06, 2008 @ 21:41
thanks supa but those sites have been out of stock for awhile now..i guess im gonna have to suck it up and order from their site..thats wack they raised the price to $155 tho
Feb 06, 2008 @ 21:42

yup..id go at least 2 sizes down..maybe 3 depending how slim you like your jeans to be.

np.

looks like im going to be doing the same.. what size you looking for? http://www.azaleasf.com/apcns.html has w33-35 for $140, i think shipping is free as well (tobi.com used to be the store for azalea boutique, but i dont know what's up now)

yea the price raise sucks. shipping's $9 for UPS ground, and if you live in cali you get to pay tax too (sucks for me..) as they'll ship from their LA store apparently.

im 6'2 155 lbs and i have a 31" waist..your waist is a 34"?
but yes def. size down 1 or 2 sizes from your actual waist measurement..just size down accordingly to how slim you'd like them.
