A.P.C. The official thread for APC denim sizing and other questions. - Page 892

@Xman11815 perfect fit man.

 

I recently got some old NS' that i stopped wearing years ago tailored. They now fit identically to my PNS, what do you lads reckon to the fit?

Got a question for the folks who have experience with the raw petit new standard: how much do the thighs stretch over time? Asking cause a 32 fits hugs my thighs like a pair of leggings and a 33 fits too loose throughout the rest of the leg. From my previous experience with raw denim (PBJ xx-011) the thighs did not stretch much, if at all.

my thighs stretched maybe 0.5" if even that. You are right thighs do not stretch

The difference is, they will stretch in the waist and butt, and therefore sit a bit lower and won't be restricted in the thigh.

That's my finding at least, depends if you use a belt to hold it up high or whatever.

Has anyone had the opportunity to try the "Low Standard", which appears to be a new fit? I often have trouble fitting into APC jeans (and prefer darker shades of indigo than APC's typical raw denim) so was curious whether these would be worth a try:

If it has a longer rise than the others then I'm definitely interested.  Some people actually like to wear their jeans on the waist rather than sag them but APC's usual low rise can mean hell for the crotch if you do this. 

Although it looks like a smarter style which would be better suited hemmed or with one roll for a cleaner look.

Any experience with APC outerwear? I would like to know about the quality. 

post #13373 of 13582

Stay away, unlike the jeans there isn't a factor which justifies the price. Cut boxy with okay construction. Unless you find it dirt cheap, theres much better for the price

Quality is just okay. Probably not worth the price in terms of materials and such, but if you like the fit and look just buy. I buy a pretty good amount of APC outerwear because the fit is great for my body type.

Thanks, I guess is better to buy when they go on sale

Could you recommend other brand, with similar style, and better quality for outerwear?

Cynical, but honest answer: Uniqlo.

I'm a big fan of Uniqlo but I don't think they compare in terms of quality or styling for outerwear, even though apc is deemed overpriced.  The boxy fit is subjective and if we're talking about something like their classic bombers, I prefer a roomier look.

Somewhere like Cos is another option but I'm guessing you're not neccessarily on a highstreet budget?

post #13379 of 13582

Don't shoot me but Maison Kitsune, great details and beautiful fabrics if you're looking for overcoats. Patrick Ervell should fit the bill for bombers. Or you can look at some of W+H's more minimal stuff.

I'd almost say J. Crew or Rag & Bone too, but with a decidedly American slant. Like APC, though, I think R&B's prices are only justified for denim (and even that's become more questionable). The rest of their stuff, for the most part, is now being made overseas (and I don't mean Italy). J. Crew at least is less expensive, but a bit more rugged looking than the others.
