I got myself a pair of NS and Naked and Famous at Dutil yesterday both for half off but now I want to exchange the NS for a size down, don't want them to stretch too much :(

One of the cashiers was nice enough to let my friend exchange his APC NS, just ask nicely

theyre aren't really supposed to though.

Had these NS for a few years now (I've all but lost count). Loved these jeans, but I think I'm done with them for the time being (crotch tear and I want to see what I can get out of the "denim" GAP offers)

Those are horrible. You must have not with them much

I don't really know what you were expecting, they're a much lighter shade of blue then they were when I had originally got them.

Wondering if I could get away by sizing down to a 32 waist for a pair of PS. I wear a 33 waist in Nudie Slim Jims and Grim Tims.

I would expect better contrast for the wiskers and combs. Looks like you washed them to often. I personally would like my pair to turn out like some of the ones posted on the last page.

I did wash them more so then ones expected to, they were my first pair of APC's and I wasn't too keen on how I should have dealt with them. Oh well, I'll prob wash my next pair a lot less

Is it just me or do black APC denim range in how they look. What am I missing? The description always just says black. I might just be seeing a difference in lighting. I personally like a more solid look to the black.

The ones on top look more of a solid black. The bottom ones have that more faded line type of black.

Those are two different pairs...top one has black warp and weft. Bottom one has black warp and white weft.

it looks like two different pairs of jeans

warp+weft are both solid black in the first pair

the weft on the second pair you posted is light grey

edit: looks like i'm too late

Ok cool, so its weft that is the difference. Too bad they don't say in the description. Oh well, it is good to know that it does vary in look and I am not just imagining it haha. I definitely like the weft to match the warp... being more dark.

Thanks for the info fellas

I think ima buy a pair of the first ones. They PS. I currently own a pair of raw NC but I think I want a smaller opening.

Btw here are some photos of my NC, size 28, I think about 1 year, a couple of washes I think. I haven't been wearing them lately. I now regret not letting them stack a little( always wore with a cuff).

what is the difference between APC Petit New Standards and the old Petit Standards?

Actually I think its a rework of the New Standards. Like a slightly slimmer version of the NS.

Question. Why on some apc jeans does it read "new standard" under the apc logo on the inner, while on others there is a black tab that reads "new standard"? Like the tab for the waist size. Thanks in advance

I like that you have swords just laying around. I hear ya on the stacks. For me it's the toughest to shape. But since you usually cuff your jeans, might as well stick with it and try differently on the next pair.

Anyway, so I've had my Petit Standards for nearly 2 years and I've never washed/soaked them. The denim is still pretty raw with the exception of the usual creases from wear. I've had coke and beer spill on my jeans, though after drying, it doesn't look like there are any stains. When I eventually do wash/soak them, will the stains show, or will they cling onto the ink taken out of the fabric? Anyone have an issue with this?

How many washes/soaks? How long have you had them? Very impressive fades.

Thank you! They have around 18 months of wear with 4 washes. Had the crotch repaired twice. I will be hanging them up for a bit while I work on my 3Sixteens I think.

hey guys,

I was browsing contextclothing and it says on their site that "Context Expert Tip: The APC Petite Standard has an updated fit. Please see our measurements chart for actual measurements. Wear for six months without washing to achieve contrast fading.", same thing for NS. Does anyone know what exactly changed?

Also is anyone buy "Petit New Standards"? Or is the above waht it's referring to?

i think they're saying that the petit standards are not vanity sized anymore, which is rubbish, still need to size down one or two at least.

petit new standard is a new model, not the one they're referring to, top block is similar to new standard but more tapered below the knee, have only seen them in a few places.

I purchased new standards in black (warp and weft black) I was surprised to see they were made in Japan and not Macau.
