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

That was my thinking too, but I ended up ordering a pair of Acne instead. They also have some higher waisted jeans and their raw denim is significantly darker in its raw state than APC (I couldn't tell if the Low Standard was the same denim as the other raw jeans). Acne also appears to be making some of their jeans for this season in Italy, which is a nice change.

does something being made in italy really matter, though?

i think i might've read it here on styfo actually, but the factory that makes common projects, for example, is in a town with a lot of chinese immigrants and the factory itself happens to employ a lot of them (feel free to fact check this btw; might be remembering incorrectly)

i'd imagine that a brand that isn't super high-end like acne is probably similar in its production?

I thought that the bigger issue, particularly when it comes to shoes, bags, etc, was that 90+% of the production happens in Asia or Eastern Europe, with the finishing touches put on in Italy, France, etc. Not sure whether that's the case for clothing or not.

I would imagine, though, that factories such as this are still far more expensive to produce in than those in Asia. Interestingly, the jeans seem to be the only item on the Acne website saying "Made in Italy".

My hunch is that perhaps Swedes stick together, and Acne shares more than unique website features with countryman Nudie, which produces the majority of its jeans in Italy. That would make the most sense to me, at least.

Thanks for the answers, I did not know Ervell, it seems a good choice.

Hi there, I'm new here. Recently I've been at London, so I bought myself some APC PNS. I went with size 31, salesman recommend me going 1 size down cause 32 fit me perfect. I can button all the way up since first wear, but they are a bit snug on hips.





I'm pretty happy with the fit overall, just what I was looking for, they are just a bit tight on my hips

Thanks for the answer.

 

I've never had APC before, so I'm not familiarised with its stretching. I can walk an cycle, but I can feel the pressure you know haha. Maybe someone has these exact cut and can tell me about his experience.

In my experience they tend to stretch like a whole size.

I'm trying to sell a Large in White Pocket T Shirt that doesn't fit me. Brand New, with tags.

After wearing them today, they feel tight, I don't feel that they are going to stretch to a comfortable fit..

If it hurts then it means you sized right 

post #13392 of 13582

I've measured my best fitting pair of jeans and they measure like 35,4"

This APC pair measures 33,8"

They really stretch that much ?
post #13394 of 13582

I am afraid so, I think you got the right size

post #13395 of 13582

That's a fair bit of strain on the hips for a new pair really.  While I agree the waist should be tight and its too early to make a decision, it doesn't mean the rest of top block can adapt to the same same amount of stretch.

Give it a few more days but tbh... The pain is not worth it.
