A.P.C. The official thread for APC questions. - Page 676

post #10126 of 12957
Just got my first pair of APC NS. they're tagged 32x34, my true size is 32x32. right now they're about an inch or so too big in the waist and looser than I'd like in the thighs. I'm thinking of giving them a hot soak today, will this be enough to shrink it down or should I just size down/get petit standard instead?

^From what I've read (see: this thread; extensively) it sounds like you should be sizing down at least two sizes if you stick with the NS.

when trying on the APC PS in 28, I could fit 1 finger in the waist, which is enough to keep them up with out a belt. 

this is about the size I would want after stretching out.

 

should i get a 27 then?

Thanks for your input...you know I did some more reading and it looks like I should actually go with the petit...I have a pair of uniqlo slim fits in 32x34 that fit great so i guess its the actual cut of the jeans that I don't really like. I will still size down 1-2 in the waist as these are pretty much new and I can't wear them w/o a belt.

Thanks for the advice. My usual tailor wouldn't do them, claiming that he didn't have the right kind of machine (which I've heard about before).  I did find a tailor who would taper them a bit - I'll let you know how it goes.  Thanks!

HEY GUYS!! 

 

My Petite Standards (Size 30) just arrived from TBS (Europe to California in 3 days Wowwww, gotta love TBS shipping)

How does this fit look to you guys?? I'm not into denim so i need some opinions on whether this is a good denim fit?? I plan on having them hemmed as soon as i break them in and wash them once. The jeans fit me tight, but not so tight that my family jewels are crushed. 

 

this is size 30, my normal size is 32. My measurements: 5'11, 165 pounds, skinny legs redface.gif

Wow, what's up with the baggy legs? Is it normal?

It's just the stacking... hemming them or rolling the cuff will give it a cleaner look.

by baggy you mean the stacking at the bottom? that is normal as most vendors tend to have one size that fits people with longer legs. these are fresh out of the box and have not been hemmed as of yet, so the only thing i could do was stack the jean at the bottom to avoid cuffing them multiple times.

Anybody know the cheapest place to get APC Petit Standards?  I'm looking for a size 28.  Tres Bien Shop would have been the cheapest, but they sold out of my size.

Need Supply with their style forum code would be around 165: http://needsupply.com/mens/brands/a-p-c/raw-petite-new-standard-8.html

What is TBS?  I take it this is an online store, but I can't seem to find an explanation.  Also, how do you guys get the discounts on there?
