APC New Standard Jeans


Pros: Relatively cheap, universal fit, durable

Cons: Crazy stretch, better alternative exist, shoddy make in recent years.

I used to wear these all of the time. Used to be the gold standard. Now, probably the bronze standard.


Pros: Extremely flattering cut

Cons: Made in Macao

Really fired up the raw denim craze. The cut just works and looks better than so many other jeans'. Reasonable price at $180. You need to size down two, because the waist stretches and you want them to look slim. A little disconcerting that they're made in macao but I haven't had issues with quality, personally. The fades really rock as you can see if you search them online.
APC New Standard Jeans

APC New Standard jeans are the evolution of APC's "Standard" jeans that have been produced since 1989. They did not change price for over a decade, and sold for $110, until 2002, when the company expanded. They were the template for Hedi Slimane's Dior jeans, and were some of the only selvedge denim "designer" jeans accessible to the American market until the 2000s. Lowish rise, a taper, and available in the "raw" state, here.
