A.P.C. The official thread for APC denim sizing and other questions. - Page 657post #9842 of 134764/2/12 at 6:36am
on another note, got a brand new pair of PS in size 28 this morning, sized down 3 as i'm looking for a skinny fit. as i wore them first i couldn't even get to the second button. 3 hours later, i can button it all the way up, but it feels tight... can i expect it to be more comfortable in a week or so? on my previous pairs i had only sized down 1 and ended up with sagging jeans after a couple of months.
and btw, i measured them as i got them out of the bag, size 28 measured exactly 28 inches at the waist, and not 30 like before. did they drop the vanity sizing recently?post #9843 of 134764/2/12 at 7:41am
Bought a pair of off white PS recently.
Very happy with the fit everywhere except length. I usually like stacking but this colorway only come in 32 inseam.
I bought them for summer use though, so maybe it's nice to not have excess denim when it's warm?
Wondering if I can pull off the ankle length since I'm tall. Bear in mind that they're prolly gonna shrink an inch after washing.
Should I go for longer or does it look ok?
Mostly gonna wear them with lo tops FWIW.post #9844 of 134764/2/12 at 7:47ampost #9845 of 134764/2/12 at 8:11amQuote:
What size do you take? I have a pair with like a 35/36 inseam that I've been to lazy to put up on B&S. waist is 31.post #9846 of 134764/2/12 at 12:49pmI have a pair of Levi's 511's that fit right in the waist - I ordered a size 28/32" and the waist has stretched to 29". I'm looking to get a pair of black raw APC's - Would I be right in ordering a size 27?
Also I'm thinking of getting petit standards - are these closer to the 511 fit than new standards?
Thankspost #9847 of 134764/2/12 at 3:11pmHas anyone experienced this problem with their apcs?
I sized down 2 and they stretched perfectly, but after a while the fly became like this. I don't know if it's normal and will look better after fading, but right now I think it looks pretty bad/easily mistaken for an open zipper. Most my other jeans are zip fly so I've never encountered this problem. Any suggestions on how to fix it?post #9848 of 134764/2/12 at 3:13pmpost #9849 of 134764/2/12 at 3:15pmpost #9850 of 134764/2/12 at 3:15pmwhy dont you guys wear belts? I never understood about people sizing down to squeeze themselves in like a sausage roll until I noticed many of you dont wear belts
and on top of that all your button problems lol
edit: pngwyn they look tighter around the hips in your earlier post, cant really tell if its too tight thoupost #9851 of 134764/2/12 at 3:25pmSo am I stuck with having messed up buttons? loool.. maybe a tailor could fix it?
I guess my logic behind not wearing a belt is that the pants are already fairly snug and stayed on my ass without one but seriously I can slip them on and off without unbuttoning them, they are relatively loose compared to some of my other jeans.post #9852 of 134764/2/12 at 3:43pmpost #9853 of 134764/2/12 at 3:45pmpost #9854 of 134764/2/12 at 4:27pmpost #9855 of 134764/2/12 at 4:59pm
