What do you guys prefer on sizing down with APC New Standards? I want a snug fit and just received a tagged size 31. I have a 34 inch waist and a tagged size 31 APC NS is measured at 32 inches in the waist. Is the Sz31 the way to go? I can button these to the top but with a little tight action struggle on the last button.

I'm usually wearing waist 32 or 33 on my non APC jeans and my APC New Standard is tagged W 31, which is perfect for me.

 

But I always wear my jeans a little bit roomy so I would guess sizing down 1 or 2 inches is the most I would go, but don't count on me too much, since I have no experience with wearing jeans tight at all. Also my regular waist 32 or 33 on my non APC jeans  is quite roomy

I'm looking to buy my first pair of APC's. I usually wear a 36 but my friend that works at Barney's says to go with a 34 because of stretching. is that accurate? looking to buy petite new standards.

No, I would go true to size.  I have the PNS, sized down one, and kind of regret it.  The PNS is a tight fit anyways.

Yes, I think it's safe to go TTS nowadays with PNS. I'm usually a size 32 but a size 32 PNS was a bit tight on me so I sized up to a 33.

Can I get a fit check on these Petit New Standards? These are size 28 and I'm usually a size 30. I like the fit on the legs, but the front and back rise is a little high and I have a pretty flat ass so it's making the fabric in the seat loose and saggy. Should I go for size 28 Petit Standards?

Like i said on reddit, a PS may be better for you in the same size.

Thanks, I took your advice into consideration I just wanted to see if I could get another opinion or see if anyone had experience with both cuts :)

i was able to try on both recently, ended up going with the petit standard. looks like you would benefit from the smaller top block

First post. I bought my first raws - APC PNS's about 4 years ago. I wore them for about 8 months mostly on weekends and sometimes on weeknights. When I finally washed, there was barely any color change. I kept them and wore them this way for another 2 years or so with washes every 4 months. Very little fading.

 

I then bought some Rogue Territory Stantons and wore those daily for about 6 months. I finally realized I sized down on those way too much. I washed them and had the same issue - no fades. I sold those and the APC's.

 

I'm now on my 3rd pair of raws - Sugarcane 2014's. They're not technically raw since they were once-washed when I bought these. I tried a different technique with these - wash frequently. So here are my SC's at 10 months old with washes every 3-4 weeks.

So these jeans have faded a little, but I'm looking to get those very high contrast fades. So now, I've gone ahead and ordered some APC New Standards. Once these come, what do I need to do to get those high contrast fades? I feel like I've tried many different combinations of washing and wearing without achieving the result I'm looking for. Any help would be appreciated.

 

TL;DR How do I get high contrast fades with a new pair of raws?

I'm thinking what I need to do for the next pair is just wear them and do not wash until I already see the contrasting fading setting in. That's one thing I haven't done before. But it seems like it will take a long time to get there. And not only that, but they're going to smell like shit after only a couple months.

 

Whatever. That's my plan for the New Standards I have coming my way. I want to also bleach my SC's to turn them into a lighter colored pair of jeans for upcoming spring/summer. Like this: http://stanleyvanburen.tumblr.com/post/28105823016/so-i-bought-some-apc-new-standards-in-november

 

Anybody ever tried something like that? I like the results in that link.

Hey I bought some Size 30 APC Petit Standards that fit really well. I followed the general rule of sizing down 2 to allow for the stretch. At first it was really tight around the thighs but it's all good now after wearing them for a while.


I am looking at purchasing an already washed indigo pair, which means the denim isn't raw. Does anyone know how they will fit compared to their raw denim counterparts?http://media.endclothing.com/media/catalog/product/cache/0/thumbnail/500x500/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/0/6/06-07-2015_apc_petitnewstandard_washedindigo_1_jtl_1.jpg

anyone owns both nc and ps? are the ps a little roomier up top? my nc are 28 and im after something slightly roomier up top on a pair of ps. not sure if i should go for 28 again or size up to 29. not interested in the pns.

to give you an indication on how close fitted my nc are, the top button is almost ripping through the button hole from stretch :).

Wonderful faded jeans with incredible patina seen here.

I can't stop watching them.

They're reflecting the full power of natural denim evolution at its best!!

Promise me to never ever throwing them away.

I would love to display them in the Jeansmuseum some day!!!

Purchased a pair of PNS in 33. The thighs are tight and the waist is loose. First time owning anything this tapered / fitted. May get rid of them for a pair of 3sixteen CT. I'm used to Japanese brands so this is a big change

I think they're the wrong cut for you too as you have big thighs. If you want APC, then the Rescue would be your thing.

Seen your body frame I think a pair of UES 400T would fit you really well. I second MF here, that cut doens't work well for your thighs. Crotch will blow out very shortly.

Only reason i got them is because it was cheaper than a bottle of Jack Daniels. I have them up for sale so if they get sold, no sweat off my back. I wanted to try something tapered but these arent working the best.

Yeah man get the CT, or the UES like volvo said. I've been kicking around the idea of a FH 3012 too.

Man the 3012 would be perfect. It totally forgot about that. I'll be at SENY soon and I'll grab one

I'd jump on it soon too. I'm not certain, but that cut isn't on Flat Head's website anymore either, so it may be discontinued or is being phased out.

Great looking denim fabric but I also never heard about APC made in China so far!! tobydo

Hmmmmm.....China! Maybe that is the newest manufacturer for APC. I bought my first pair, some New Standards at the Melrose store in LA a few weeks ago. I tried all the fits and went with the PS, which are made in Viet Nam...all the pairs I tried there were made there also. Now I know APC used to be made in Macau, which is China.

 

I read Jean Touitou despises the Chinese...but, maybe profit beats dislike.
