Dear Folks: Everyone on the board knows APC for its conservative styling and solid quality. School uniforms and workwear are obvious influences. You wear APC; it does not wear you. I have a small quantity of items in several styles. There are Standards, short sleeve shirts, khaki and red pants & shorts and outerwear. These are overstocks. The APC tag behind the neck or at the back of the waist has been cut out, but all items are authentic and first quality. SHIRTS The shirts and some outerwear items are red-coated tan cotton canvassy fabric. It looks like some rubberized cotton fabrics but it is not rubberized nor it is water resistant. The label here states in French and English, “The fabric used in this garment has been dyed and then coated with a pigment that makes it more fragile. Both machine washing and dry cleaning will result in a shortening in length and a washed out looked (sic).” What this means is that the color will wear off as you rub it in the course of wear or machine washing or dry cleaning. This means you can make it your own, just as you would with APC denim. I think you should wash it lots of times to get a nice broken-in look. The shirt has a point collar and buttons down the front. Sizing: M: top to bottom 31, shoulder 19, arm 9.5, chest 45. SOLD OUT L top to bottom 31, shoulder 19.5, arm 10, chest 47. After one machine washing in cold water and air drying, the measurements of the L were Top to bottom 30.5, shoulder 19, arm 9.5, chest 46. So do make allowance for this shrinkage when ordering. Here is the shoulder seam after one machine washing: Size designations are my estimates based on the measurements. APC retail is approx 150. My price: 40 ---> 30 shipped. Measurements: OUTERWEAR The shirt jacket coat here has two breast pockets, which are double: both a flapped pocket and an unflapped pocket behind. Handwarmer pockets at the hips. Epaulets on shoulders. There is a button front and button cuffs. One rear vent. Unlined. In red coated canvassy fabric with tan backing like the shirt above, and with the same fabric advisory. S: top to bottom 30.5, shoulder 18, arm 26, chest 42. SOLD OUT M: top to bottom 31, shoulder 19, arm 26, chest 44.
