What makes APC jeans unique?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what all the hype is about APC's? What sets them apart from other denim brands?

Thanks in advance!

"hype" has a lot to do with it. but in reality, they're good quality jeans w/ nice cuts for an affordable price.

I come fresher than a moist toilette

the thing that makes APC's so unique is that there really not unique at all (i hope you can understand that). APC's have no distinct markings or anything about them that is identifying. they are in my oppinion the best "generic looking" jeans you can get. they are great quality and they are relatively inexpensive at around US 120 a pair when your shopping in the states. i think they are also unique because for the most part, only people who own a pair of APC's will be able to identify them on another person, its not like you can look at someones ass and see identifying stitching like with the majority of other brands of denim.

How exactly do you go about identifying a pair of APC jeans? They just look like a dark pair of jeans to me.

C'mon... Seriously?

The Cut

The Selvage (especially if cuffed) & Color

The Undersized Pockets

Etc

All of which makes the denim unique as well.

Amazing that APC is still getting thread time... Wow

The front pockets aren't deep at all, back pocets hold a wallet fine.

i like all thr images of APCs ive seen so far; right now im balling on a restricted budget; But i love the fact that they dont stand out to anyone outside the know. I hate most things that double as billboards.

I got a pair of the "New Standard" APC jeans last year in NY....I think the color, fit and cut are super good.

Can't beat a dope pair of denim for a buck twenty....

thinkin of ordering a pair of new standards...

if i'm normally a 31, i should order a 29 if i've interpreted the mass of info about sizing correctly...

anyone a 31 that ordered a pair of new standards?

i don't understand why everyone of this board praises APCs. I know this will get dismissed as my opinion but I think APCs look cheap, feel cheap, fade cheap....I gave in awhile back and bought a pair to see what all the hype was about and the more I wear them the more I notice wrong with them.

i notice the site now has the following "new" jeans in stock:

original standard

standard

what is the difference between these and the new standard? is the new standard just lower rise and the original a normal/high rise? the new standard also seems to have gone up in price to $160.

original standard are same cut, just have a higher rise. same jeans from the early 90s

negatory. that denimbar seems to only stock the usual suspects - sevens, citizens...

the new standards and the standards on apc.fr are the same cut, just different washes. as mentioned earlier, the old standards have a higher rise, that's all.

I'm not really sure what the big deal is either. They are great classic jeans, which hold up well, but they've only been around since the early/mid nineties. Sure, they've added a few new cuts, but why are so many people just discovering them now?
