I've been wearing my APC New Standards for over 9 months now (about twice per week) and washed once. Was wondering why are my denim still so damn stiff and uncomfortable to wear? About to give up on them and just wear my comfy uniqlo denim with 2% spandex confused.gif

1) Raw denim worn twice a week will remain "stiffer" than other non raw brands which are heavily washed before the first wear

2) Make sure you do a lot of walking / cycling in your jeans initially. Helps to break them in

3) The Self Edge guys say wash every two months or so (though I don't know if that takes into account less wear).

In all honesty it think there needs to be a better guide on how to approach raw denim for people that wear denim two-three times a week...

Not sure what do you mean by that.

The fit is good, what's your height and weight? And nice Margielas by the way.

Thanks! They're just normal GATs and I'm 5'9.5" and 168 lbs, 31" waist.

Tried on a pair of petit standards in a 32. Could barely button the top without sucking in a bit. Couldn't even punch in any of the other buttons so decided to go for a 33. Hopefully it doesn't get stretched out too much in the waist.

Is it true that Petit Standards size 29 and 30 have to same exact fit with the exception of the waist? According to context clothing's size chart that's what it says.

maybe they're just too small to begin with?

Mine too. Both pockets. But I do not think it has anything to do with the pants. My iPhone has sharp edges, and thats what makes the holes.


Anyway I have a 32 petit standard which fits really good. Been wearing them for a year now. But not exclusively. Then I wanted to try the Petit New standard and some petit standard in black. Both size 32. The problem is that these two new pairs are WAY more tight than the old raw blue indigo PS 32. 
I know they need to be worn for some time to expand, but the PS was NEVER this tight. My ass cannot literally fit in the two new pants, and my thighs does not really fit in the pants. I can barely bottom them..

Why are the 32 PNS and BLACK PS so much slimmer than the raw indigo PS? All are size 32.

might be a dumb question, but have you gained weight?

alternatively maybe your indigo ps are from old stock (I.e. before they updated their fits)?

does anyone know where the A.P.C jackets (varsity) are made? I sold my jacket but it's stuck at the us border because they f*cking need the manufacture address and how the fabric is made (woven or knitted). I called the APC customer service and they can't even give me the info...

How the hell am I supposed to know theses informations?

APC Petit Standard (29) exactly one month in. Amazing how much more comfortable these are compared to the 28's I used to have. I guess the .5 inch of rise makes a big difference.
