The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

I'm also stuck deciding between APC or 3sixteen.

Thinkin APC for the fit and how the seem to fade pretty quickly. I'm really thin so I need something pretty skinny in the thighs and wont cause any flaring.

316 seems like nicer denim but not sure the ST will fit how I want.

Also people shouldn't get all caught up on things being made in China..whether these pants are or aren't made there. There's plenty of great quality items being made there.

look at the measurements to make sure they fit well. I would go 3sixteen, if I was aware of their quality before i bought my apcs thats what I would be wearing right now instead of my PS

I have looked at measurements...several times. 316 has different measurements depending on what site you go to. And when I hem them they're probably going to have a 7 inch or slightly bigger hem which I don't want.

Which APC's come closest to 510's fit? Looking for a smaller leg opening on a 36 waist, if thats even possible...

Definitely get Petit Standards, the leg opening is skinny as fuhhh

Hey guys, this is my current fit : (petit standard size 28 5 days of wear ) i dont like much how my ass fits... that folds in the pockets...

i am thinking on sizig down 1 more, to a 27 because I want a fit similar to alex turner and jamie cook apcs:
Feb 22, 2012 @ 00:35
back pocket folds are almost inevitable.... sizing down won't necessarily fix them. the fit looks really good already, i'd recommend staying with it
Feb 22, 2012 @ 01:58
Nacho- What's you height and weight? Do you know your thigh measurement?

Just placed an order for PS 27. Hope they fit well and don't have to go down to 26. I was thinking a 6" hem would be too small but my size 29 Levi's 511 have like a 6.25 hem.

I'm 5'6 120lbs maybe less with a true waist of 29/30 where I wear my pants. It should fit just snug and hope I can control the stretch at the waist
Feb 22, 2012 @ 02:45
Nacho - keep em. stop sagging and you wont get those folds. but who the hell doesnt sag.

Looking for in size 8.5-9 003 Authentics/Chukka PM ME!

@Lcky: You should be fine I personally woulda went with 28 though.

@Nacho: Those look like they fit perfectly dont exchange them.
Feb 22, 2012 @ 06:44
I am worried about the stretching... But when i went to Paris and I tried the 27 i only can button 1 or 2 buttons, and was very dificult to put them.

@lcky 5' 9'' 138lbs I dont know how to measure my thighs...
<a rel="nofollow" href='' rel='nofollow'>@yeltsew</a> I dont sag, that is why its strange ...

i have lightly worn (~1.5-2 month with littl anything going on) PS sz 32

i sized down two but i think i shoulda gone three because of stretching.

if anyone wants to trade my sz 32 for a sz 31 OR if anyone has any suggestions for a cut im all ears. they just dont seem to be doing much. thinking about going to a nudie grim tim

Feb 22, 2012 @ 19:56
nachobarro - stick with the 28. Very nice fit. Anyway about the Size 27, Yep you cant really button all 4 button at the start.. Maybe after 1 or 2 days of wearing then you'll able to button full.. Same like my PS size 25. Couldn't button till 2nd day.
Feb 22, 2012 @ 21:35
nacho, you can just grab a shoe lace and rap it around you mid thigh then hold it where the two pieces meet then put it against a tape measure if you have one. But I guess it's all good if you don't know. I'll just have to wait till they arrive.

visionary, there's no way I'm only going to sized down 1...that would be too big, specially with all the talk about how much they stretch. a 28 would technically be sizing up. I was thinking of getting 26's but we'll see. Thing is the hem gets really small the more you size down.

I ordered from a place that does full refunds minus shipping...So anyone who's in the same boat as me and not sure what size to get I would highly recommend ordering from places you can at least do a full refund just incase APC isn't what you want.

My thighs measures 9.9 "
Feb 22, 2012 @ 22:54
Thought you meant your true waist is 30. My true waist is 30 and 28 fits perfectly for me. Sizing down 2 is all you really need imo.

@Nacho your thighs are 9.9'?? Thats HELLLA skinny.
Feb 23, 2012 @ 06:45
Yea, I've been wearing my sz27 ns for a week and they fit perfect, unfortunately they've got a ton more stretching to do. Should have went down one more w/e lets see how these turn out. Copping a pair of ps next time thou.

Feb 23, 2012 @ 06:46
maybe your PS thighs measure 9.9 laying flat but not your actual thigh.

fhow easy is it for you button that top button? normally you shouldn't be able to button the top without massive struggle during the first week or two of wear
Feb 25, 2012 @ 13:24
it isn't very difficult... I dont wanna have in 1 month the jeans so loose. I don't know if i can fit in a 27 cause, when i tried the 27 it's fucking difficult to pass the legs through the calves, cause of the small leg opening. In SuFu the said me that the fit is fine and to don't size down but i dont know... Here in Madrid there aren't APC Jeans, so I can't try them. If the fit stays like it is now i will keep'em but if they are going to stretch out a lot more... I like this fit: two in the middle are apcs
alex turner, who is in the left.

they look pretty good to me.

hoping i didn't just screw up my fresh pair of PS. I did a hot soak to get rid of whatever shrink that might happen before i get them hemmed. after the 30 minutes when i went to get the jeans out, the tub was pretty dark with indigo from the jeans. any chance this is gonna screw up (or lessen) the fading i would have been able to get?
Feb 26, 2012 @ 01:56
APCs are sanforized so they don't shrink that much when soaking/washing so you shouldn't have soaked em but it's fine. The indigo will bleed regardless and 30 mins wouldn't strip away that much anyways. They're not screwed up, but your fades won't have as much contrast as they would've if you just wore em raw.
Feb 26, 2012 @ 07:18
cool cool. well i mean all my raw denim so far has been sanforized ( apc ns, nc, and n&f) and they've all shrunk in the inseam about an inch after a hot soak so that's why i did soak them before i'm gonna get them hemmed. its jsut that in the past i've used woolite dark and (i guess bc of the woolite dark) didn't have much bleeding. but oh well. sucks that i won't get as much contrast but i guess as long as they arent completely messed up, i'm happy
