I live in Paris where there are dry cleaners on every street corner.. most of them claiming "specialists of luxury goods".. well I've had my share of "accidents" last one being only few weeks ago with some brand new off white APC's that came back brown.. as depressing as it is, I'm not really sure there is much one can do about it (last one offered me vouchers for the amount of the item, as if i was ever giving them business again). As others have suggested, I would...
keys: cash: cards: phone in hand or jacket pocket.. nothing looks worse then bulges on skinnies imo
the waist size is huge as in 30=33 (+stretching) and the rise is short hence low waist... problem is if you size down too much you'll have problems with the lower knee section.. basically they fit one body type... but since you're in NY i suggest going in-store and trying them on..
^ huge low waist, skinny hem... honestly a bit hard to pull off unless you have somewhat of an athletic build & don't mind saggy jeans (per kanye styling ).. don't expect anything similar in fit to regular APC denim
Again it's all relative to what you're comparing it to... i stated it was above mainline.. Louis W is their premium outerwear line.. as far as the denim goes, all the raw black overdye models & petit standard leger were made in japan. perhaps because i'm in Paris, and shop at the flagship, they are more readily available.. the rest are made in Macau (including the APC x Kanye jeans) and the quality is honestly average at best if you are a denim connoisseur. the fabric...
Quality is all relative to what you're comparing it to.. but it's also true that APC is sort of inconsistent with items produced in a rather wide range of places. the denim isn't produced in vietnam, it's 80% made in macau, 20% made in japan ( with difference in quality is what you'd expect). Touitou has said in interviews that he's constantly trying to improve quality by finding the best ratio in between fabrics and manufacture origin. he actually doesn't do much...
APC manufacture in various countries, mostly from within EU. The fabrics are mainly sourced in Italy. Only the jeans are made in Macau from Japanese denim. Read my above comment for info on last collab...
FWIW i own most of the first collab items and I can honestly say the quality of the cut & sew.. especially the T-shirts.. was actually quite excellent and obviously leagues apart from gap/uniqlo both in quality & cut. the fabric used was a very fine mercerised cotton which gave it a slight lustrous appearance and very pleasant light weight feel. the elongated cut layered and draped perfectly with super low waist jeans and side slit hoodie. honestly that collab was one of...

that's exactly how they should fit.. 15.5 being the (super) skinny model, if you find them too tight why not try the D01 slims or D03 straight.. FWIW i own a pair of each (D01,D02,D03)
