A.P.C. The official thread for APC denim sizing and other questions. - Page 884

post #13246 of 13582
Haven't bought APCs in years (I was a good 15-20 lbs lighter back then and my old jeans no longer fit at all) and wanted to get a pair to wear around during the weekends.

Made a trip to the APC store in SoHo and after trying a few pairs of jeans I found the PNS in a size 30 to be pretty comfy. So I decided to snap some quick fit pics and would greatly appreciate some feedback/advice/criticism.





Looking at pics now not sure what to think, waist is slightly loose, thigh fits snug. But overall feels and looks a bit sloppy? Size down by 1 and/or try another cut like PS? Was kind of going for a pretty slim/skinny fit. Tape measures 32 around where I wear my jeans. I'm 5'6 so tons of stacking unfortunately.

What do you guys think?

I'll get the opinions started... looks pretty average to me. At 5'6 there's going to be stacks even with a hemming (which I'd suggest) but go back and get something that fits better. Doesn't have to be skinny per se, but at least try down a size in those PNS and try out the NS and PS too.

I'm 5'6 130 and found the NS's too wide even sizing down, the PNS too tight in the calves at the size that worked for my waist and thighs, and in the end I went for the PS's, sized down to a 27/28 or so (ok I actually bought a 26 but it's too tight and I went back and fitted them on again and the 27 is the best for me).

play around with sizes, cuts, and also as I mentioned earlier, check for the 2% stretch versions

How long should I wait before washing my black ps?

7 months 12 days is pretty standard.

Thanks for the feedback, went back to the store and exchanged it for a 28 PS, could button up all of the buttons but felt very snug. Leg looks a lot cleaner too. Will snap fit shots once I get a chance!

I also have this question. I love the PNS fit, but it doesn't appear they have them in black. I also have store credit for a place that sells Acne, so I would like to know what Acne fit is closest to the PNS?

Acne Ace and thin is closest to the PNS.

I actually bought a pair of black ones colorway was called lizz noir, but i dont see them on sale anywhere anymore. They look like an unwashed black on black denim.

Theyre perfect, still looking for a similiar pair of raws though, want to give some other denim a try

Can anyone comment on APC jacket sizing? I'm interested in the new bomber jacket http://www.endclothing.com/us/brands/a-p-c/a-p-c-rudy-bomber-jacket-paaav-h02275-jac.html. I'm 5'5 135lbs and normally wear XS-S. I have short arms. I'm not sure if the small would be too tight in the chest area as I workout.

I'm 5'6 145, and have an average chest size at 38''.

From prior experience, APC Jackets/tops/coats run anywhere from true to size to slightly relaxed. I wear an XS in almost everything they have with some room to spare.

Unless you literally have a 42+ inch chest at 5'5 and 135lbs which is insane and you probably won't have the arm length to fit a medium in that case.

Good luck!

thanks for the response. You're pretty much my size. So you would recommend an xs in the jacket?
post #13258 of 13582
I'd say so, most of the stuff i own from APC is XS and I'd say it's the right size in terms of arm length and chest (I have shorter arms too).

Also, If it's any help I am also a small in Wings Horns/ small in Band of Outsiders/XS in Steven Alan, XS in Uniqlo stuff (small in Slim fit stuff though)

Keep in mind that END's measurements are a bit sketchy so don't fully trust those unless you can ask an associate to properly measure it for you.

I've found End's measurements to be quite accurate.  Problem is once any garment's actually on person they usually become irrelevant.

Eh, it depends. I've asked them to re-measure some stuff on occasion and they end up with measurements that are significantly different than the size charts. I've bought stuff that I would have no chance in fitting based alone on their sizing tab measurements and they've been fine. Just beware that it's not always entirely accurate and cross check with another size chart if possible.
