I love the APC Petite Standards, but I need something a little thinner for the hot summer. Any suggestions?

Raw Denim Jeans that fit like APC Petit Standards, but thinner?post #1 of 136/24/12 at 9:43amThread Starter

They do but they also make chinos, courderoys, poplin pants and all types of other pants in the same cuts as their jeans some of which would be a lot more suitable for hot summer. Honestly, you may be able to find skinny jeans that are thinner than APCs but not to the extent that you would be cool in them and hot in the APCs.post #5 of 136/24/12 at 11:42ampost #6 of 136/24/12 at 12:12pmpost #7 of 136/24/12 at 2:39pmpost #8 of 136/24/12 at 3:48pmpost #9 of 136/24/12 at 4:06pm
+1 Get some lightweight pants/etc. Thinner jeans will break down and get blowouts even quicker than regular apc's and won't necessarily keep you that much cooler. If you do want to stick with jeans go for something like uniqlo's T000 or some spring/summer season Acne jeans- they'll be thinner than raws and have some stretch to them.post #10 of 139/13/12 at 2:35pm
I am looking for this also. I like the cut of the APC Petit Standards, but the material is so much thicker than most jeans that it makes my legs sweat. Uniqlo seems to have similar cuts if you live in NYC and they are only $40/pair. It would be nice to find more thinly woven raw with a good cut, however.post #11 of 139/13/12 at 4:34pm
Just got a pair of Japan Blue x Momorato's yesterday. I've never had a pair of APC Petits but theses are definitely one of the tightest pairs of denim I've owned.
They have all the measurements included on their site.post #12 of 139/13/12 at 6:08pm
