Just got my New Standards from www.apc.fr. Â Luckily I picked the right size (I am normally in between a 31 and a 32) - 30's. Â The waist is just right (forgot to measure it though, I can put that measurement up later if anyone wants it) but the inseam is 36". Â Since I like 33-33.5 I am thinking that I should get them hemmed - they look weird when I am wearing them since they are all bunched up in the lower leg/knee/ankle. Â Does getting them hemmed to 34.25 or 34.5 sound about right? Â My main question is what sort of shoes should I be wearing with the APCs? Â With my darker jeans I like to wear a pair of black Nike Cortez, but since the leg opening is only 8" this doesn't look quite right - although they do look fine with a pair of Diesel's I have whose leg opening is 9". I figure I should use this as an excuse to buy new sneakers to wear with them. I am not a fan of chucks, so those are out for sure. Should I go for some mid height shoes rather than lows? I have been looking at these recently: http://www.final-score.com/catalog....ID=8734 They are lows, but I think you can get them in mid too. My bias against mid though is that you can't wear them with shorts, which is something I do being as I live in Houston. Anyone have any other shoe suggestions on what could work with the New Standards?
