Just picked these APC Petite Standards size 30. Think I these could use a hem, but not sure how much. Thoughts on the fit?
post #11747 of 12957

I say wear them a few times before thinking about hemming. They are going to stack a lot more behind the knees once they settle in, and that will make them seem shorter. Just give them a cuff or two, wear them and then decide.

hem for sure, or cuff. but other than that, fit looks good

Thanks. If I wasn't interested in cuffing what would be a good amount to cut off? I don' mind stacking it some, but I don't want it to be over the top.

If you plan on washing it in hot water I would leave it 2 inches longer than your normal inseam.

I normally wear a size 30, and wondering if I should go for a 28 or a 27 in New Standards. I like the fit of the legs on the 28s as-is, but I'm afraid they might get too baggy once they stretch. I tried on a 27 but the thighs are just about skin tight (can pinch about 1/4 of an inch of extra denim) and I can lift my foot up knee-high before complete resistance from the denim. I know there will be stretch where there is resistance but am wondering about the thighs?

 

I'm looking for a fit close to this:

 

 

 

Size 27:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Size 28:

 

 

 

 

Thoughts?

Indigo NC, black 19cm. Both 2-3+ years old, probably have worn the 19cm more though. I think both have 2 washes, stopped keeping track long ago.

Yes, at least in my limited experience with APC, you generally want to size down to the smallest where you can still get them buttoned. They stretch out like mad.

Always get mine so I can't button the top button unless you wear them for half and hour first.

sharpie, they won't just stretch jsut for the sake of stretching. if the 28's are how you want the legs I don't foresee them getting much larger as there isn't resistance on them

I have the military chinos from last year and I noticed that they are not supposed to be washed even though they are cotton. I'm assuming it's because the lining is viscose. Has anyone tried washing that at home? I've been dry cleaning them, but it seems like... overkill?

Where's a cheap place to buy new standards? Tres Bien doesn't have a 26. Is $185 the only alternative?

I bought APC PS at Machus. They were like 130 with a holiday coupon, but you could try that.
post #11760 of 12957
Thanks but no sale right now. Any other places?
