A.P.C. The official thread for APC denim sizing and other questions. - Page 891

Thighs look slightly too roomy before the taper begins which could get worse when the waist stretches and they begin to sag.  But a size down may be too tight in the hip area.  Did you try the 29?  I think sizing down 3 on the new standards isn't uncommon

So I've had numerous pair of APC jeans and the sizing is the biggest pain in the ass. I find they're either to small and I have problems moving my legs and they're just not comfy or the opposite happens and I get them bigger and they just feel to baggy. Looking for people's opinions on these they're quite baggy around the waist and I'm now paranoid that they're too baggy in the crotch and look stupid.

Hi guys. I'm about to order my first pair of APCs and would like some advice on the fit. Up till now i've been wearing Nudie grim tims and i like the fit but i've gotten tired of the damn crotch blowouts. So i've decided to give APCs a shot. Which cut do u guys reccomend that will have a similar look to the grim tims?

I'm currently considering getting a pair of PNS in 31 which are 1 size down from my normal size of 32.

are these PNS ? if they are , i think its because of the length of the rise, mine are not as loose but i've noticed that as well. With that being said I like the fit on yours, I think they look good. What belt is it btw ? Looks very nice ;)

Probably the not the best belt to wear if you're paranoid about how your crotch looks.  Imo yes I think its baggy for a new pair

They're new cures. It's a Kawasaki belt buckle!

They're not exactly new, maybe been wearing them 3/4 months!

So i decided to get a pair of PNS in 31. They're comfortable in the thighs and calves but slightly stiff in the crotch. Any comments on the fit? Kinda feel like sizing down 1 more.

Hello,

Are APC sizes the same worldwide? I am in the USA but saw a boutique in London that has my size for less than I's pay here. I would be getting a 32 PNS. Can someone let me know? Thanks in advance!

also note that the stretch indigo has a shorter inseam than the regular raw indigos... was at the NYC APC store and noticed a 2 inch difference of inseam on size 27 PS's.

hello - quick question. i have the raw Petit New Standards in a 29. wanted some black denim to replace very old dior 19s, so tried on Petit Standard. the 29 in the Petit Standard looked good, but i could also fit the 28. the store seemed to think 28 would look better in time. so question is - any of you have black Petit Standards (not raw just black denim).if so - have they stretched out? they seem to have some elastic material. my other hestiation with the 28 is i dont like when you can see the outline of calves. i dont think thats the case with mine and the store did say will stretch around .5 an inch..

anyways any tips appreciated as i have no experience with these jeans.

are these 100% cotton? if so they'll stretch, but shrink back a bit whenever you wash. How often are you going to wash? hang dry? I have a pair of blacks in 29 that i purchased for similar reasons to you but ultimately ended up buying another pair in 28 because they looked nicer.

the petit standard are:
98% Cotton. 2% Polyurethane. with my raws i only washed by hand once every 6 months or so. with these, i would probably wash by hand and hang dry

yah

In my experience stretch denim doesn't really stretch as much as regular raws. I would go with the 29's but maybe someone with more experience with 2% denim can put some input. Maybe next time you can include some fit pics. I think that would help
