[Quote] FALSE APC Jeans are usually made in Macau (technically under the Republic of China, but do you consider Puerto Rico the United States?) and in Japan ( Source: http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/3430/imga1318smallyx1.jpg) . -APC denim has a far superior reputation to Naked & Famous and has been around a lot longer. -There has been no issues with APC denim losing buttons and bad construction (evidenced in various N&F Elephant II posts on N&F thread). -APC does not go on sale often, and has a far higher average price point than Naked & Famous. -APC is bound to last while N&F is not. As a reference to keynesian economics, the supply side of N&F and APC is at a constant rate. Suppose the demand is at a constant level and will eventually rise, the price point of N&F cannot go up but stays at the same and goes down. APC on the other hand is with fine opportune to increase price (as has been apparent in previous years $165 - $180). TL;DR the Naked and Famous company is going down while APC will go up. TL;DR If you want to save around $30 get Naked and Famous, if you want good construction, prominence, and a sure fire fit get APC.

Jean Jacket Opinions?

The general hypebeast consensus IMO is to have your jean jacket matching colors with your denim. If you have a jean vest then wear a darker colored T shirt under .

Well they are a bit more tapered at the legs than the 510, but I am confident they are vanity sized so you would have to size down two. The pair I have is a 28, while my measured waist is 30.

The Official Naked & Famous Denim Thread

The Slim Jims are made by Nudie and the Weird guys are made by Naked and Famous. Regarding sizing, people usually size down 2 for Slim Jims (Nudie Jeans) and up 1 for Weird Guys (Naked & Famous). If you are referring to Slim Guys, which are made by Naked and Famous you can size up 2 for that since they aren't vanity sized.

Go slim jim's. The tube kelly and high kai's are usually made with a bad rise where they tend to blow out really early. Go slim Jim and size down 4, so you're basically sizing down 1.5 since they're vanity sized, and they will stretch perfectly after a week

Get tapered for the optimal slim/tight fit. Make sure you go TTS cause these are SERIOUSLY tight or sized alot differently from my N&F

The Official A.P.C Denim Thread

Well the size 25 true waist measures to around a 28 so for the first bit it was just buttoning up 2 buttons and having a belt cover the top. Eventually it stretched out the 3 inches and more.

24 on the APC would be your perfect fit. I have a 31 waist and my 25 NC's were tight at first but after a week of stretching they were perfect. I retired them after a year because it got worn fast and the fades were better than my Diors and N&F's.

Yes, just put it in the dryer without anything but the pants itself though.
