The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

@rekuso I wore those for about a year and a half. Id prolly guess about a little more than 5 washes
Jan 14, 2013 @ 21:27
couple questions...
1) are there any negative side effects to spraying your denim w/ febreeze? i've been lightly spraying mine every 2-3 days with linen scented febreeze. they don't smell yet, but i thought "why wait until they smell to rid them of the smell when i can simply prevent the smell?" am i wrong in doing this?
2) what exactly does washing with woolite dark do? i am under the impression that your fades come out more noticeable after you wash (is that right), does woolite dark effect this?

thanks & sorry for the newbie Qs.
1) Febreeze doesn't harm denim at all, though it is kind of stupid to do it before they even smell. Febreeze + dryer sheets in the pocket are the best remedy for smell though, forget the freezer trick, that shit is stupid and doesn't work.

2) Woolite dark is useful for retaining indigo, i.e. keeping the jeans darker - so no, fades will most likely not be more noticeable if Woolite is used.

Yo, I will copping some APC Petit Standards doon.

I know they stretch herefore I should get 1 or 2 sizes down.

Are they all LENGTH 34?

Will they shrink after first wash lengthwise? Will they shrink to the original waist after washing?

Should I be able to button them up when buying them or should they just fit really tight on the waist when bought?

How do I wash them? What's the deal with soaking them in the bath and will the stiff raw denim become nice and stretchy after a while? How long will this take?

do not wash them when you receive them. they are sanforized so will nto shrink when you do your first wash.

just wear them and after about 20 days they'll be softer and molding to your body.

and if you can button up atleast two buttons then just wait it out to stretch, 

and also be careful with the knees and to not bend them too much at the start

Be about it

I have a pair of brand new apc petit standard in size 29 never tried on selling cheaper than retail hit me up
Jan 22, 2013 @ 02:42
I don't know which I want more NC or PS. I'm also having trouble deciding on which size I should get either in. Can you guys help me? 

I measured a pair of PBJ xx-010 that I had tapered:



Waist measures at about 16.25in across.



Upper thigh is about 11in across.



The knee is about 7.5in across.

How it looks on me:







Which style is closest to my xx-010?

those look clean as fuck. so pbjs don't get hella knee bulges? might invest in a pair.

Jan 22, 2013 @ 09:09
Well, I tapered these. They used to be straight to the leg opening. I had them tapered to like 6.5-7in leg opening. 

Look into xx-011 and xx-013. Those are the two tapered cuts that pbj offers. 
Jan 22, 2013 @ 23:12
mrunicorn, I'd say get a PS size 30 because it has an 11 in thigh and 7 in leg opening. It has an 8 in knee though, so if you want it close to your pbj's get that tailored to a 7.5 in knee. Hope that helps!
Jan 22, 2013 @ 23:20
The waist of a PS in size 30 would stretch to about 32ish?
Jan 23, 2013 @ 00:14
I don't really understand. I buy my Petit Standards 1 or 2 sizes to small, they are very hard and uncomfy, I wear them and with the time they become soft and stretchy and comfortable? And when they are soft and stretchy I can wash them? What happens in the wash to them?
Jan 23, 2013 @ 00:32
Well, what happens when you wash things is that they become clean.

Lol.

You lose some of the indigo and depending on whether you wash them hot or cold they'll shrink.
Jan 23, 2013 @ 04:36
Are there any other brands with small/normal sized back pockets, or is APC the only one?

You are fucking stupid. Stick to washed denim.

Dior Homme, Levi's, Naked and Famous, Unbranded, the list goes on and on and on.

I think Naked and Famous and Unbranded both have relatively large back pockets
Jan 26, 2013 @ 00:18
Relative to what? 3Sixteens have large pockets. Unbranded and N&F are both smaller than those, and just slightly larger than APCs. I'd call them normal-sized.
