APC New Standard Jeans

  • Material:
    Me? 30 or 31
    Colors Available:
    PC 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.

    Does anyone have issues with the NS rise. I find it to be too low; when I sit I my crack shows.

    @Dieselman89, I've had a few pairs of J Brands, they fade extremely quickly and the crotch busted faster than any other pair of jeans I've owned. This was a few years ago but from what I've seen in stores it doesn't look any better. At $60-80 the price isn't bad but I would not recommend them.

    I saw RRL over here (NL) for €270,–. APC NS is €125,–. I would definitely try RRL if the price difference was the same as in the US, but paying more than twice as much for them—would they be worth it?

    I let my NS die and have since started a sublte addiction to RRL. Slim are cut similar to NS and low strait are pretty much rescues.

    @ JapanAlex01 my concern with my J Brands is that they are a raw denim and I still haven't really decided that I am ready not to have them continue to fad. Meaning once you wash them they loose that "raw" texture.

    They're still my favorite cut, but yes the whole made-in-macao thing does not bode well.

    dieselman89: No, no experience! Yeah, I had to wash my A.P.C.s to stop them from stretching more! I might buy 29" (as I am ~32"), so that they will stretch, but don't know if can be arsed with risk/dedication! :/

    Purchase date: September 1998?? Fok is O.G.
    For those who love the New Standard fit, the Epaulet Smith has identical measurements. BTW Does anyone have experience with these?

    @JapanAlex01 I noticed you said something about sizing. Do you have any experience with J brand? My sizing seems to have streched like crazy since my initial purchase..
