I've been reading for a while now, thought I would post. I'm spending the month in Paris, so I thought I would check out the APC store (in 3e). The people there were so helpful that I couldn't not buy a pair of New Standards, size 30 (the sudden drop in the Euro helped; instant gratification was better than buying cheaper in $$). 10 days in, I like them a lot. But I can barely stand the small front pockets. Between a tight fit in the thighs and the raw denim, I feel like I'm scraping my knuckles every time I have to get something out. Part of the problem is that I've always carried my wallet in a front pocket, a habit these will likely break me of. But I still need to carry around 1 and 2 Euro coins . . . Maybe the problem is more the jeans than the pocket size, but I'm unconvinced.
