Assuming their measurements are accurate, they're off compared to regular petit standards. Specifically the inseam, which they have at 33", and the leg opening, which they have at 16". Unless they're modified or their model has unusual sizing, their quoted measurements seem accurate. :/

Prices are pretty solid bang for buck and can often be found on sale here and there or ordered online for cheaper.

Where to find in Toronto? A few places... For sure at Holt Renfrew, Dutil, and probably Nomad, Jonathan&Olivier, maybe even Gravity Pope and Due West. Showroom might have them too. I'd say hit up the whole lot in a trip across Queen West.

I usually wear Slim Jims and would say they're like a New Standard, with Grim Tim or Thin Finn like a Petite Standard.
The biggest difference is APC's are usually bought to be raw and they're darn stiff and need a lot of breaking in. Plus they stretch a lot so people need to size down a lot.

In terms of prices, regular retail is +/-$200, online for around $150 but I'm wearing a pair of black PS I got at Nomad for $80 or something because they dropped the model, so I'd say around $100 is a good price, but even at $120-150 is objectively good bang for buck.

PM me if you want more info etc

Thanks Master-Classter!! Awesome info... I'll have to take a walk down Queen West soon. I wear Nudies Slim Jim as well, but have always disliked how much markings are on Nudies. 

I'm definitely going to pick up a pair of APC now! How do you like Acne and AG Adriano Goldschmied?

Cheers

Their measurements are not accurate. I noticed it on other stuff too. I think APC is pretty consistent with their sizing though right? Still can't find out my sizing on APC PS. Some sites like Need Supply says the leg opening on a pair is 7.35" while others say it is 6.75". I think it is really close to the latter and a skinny jean fit not like the n&f weird guy?

They are consistent with their jeans. The five different 30's I have all have a leg opening of 6.75 and an inseam of 34-34.5.

They just look off on the model, especially the length. I guess they could be hemmed or the model has real long legs...

Quick question. The non-raw Petite Standards.. do they fit the same as raws? Also, would you guys recommend them? If not, why not?
post #12262 of 12863
What's the resale market for used APC? I had to size down two sizes in New Standards. I now have a pair of 35 I wore probably 20 times that can go.

FWIW I was skeptical about APC but I will wear their raw denim going forward... I like the look and the price

If you want jeans that don't fade, and usually leave no denim stains, then yea get them. My light blue petit standards fit looser.

Hello i am wearing APC Petit Standard in Size 28, could button all up in the beginning but it was very hard.

Now they have stretched out just perfect, but i dont like the leg.... its a bit to loose for my taste.

 

Im looking to ghte the  Petit NEW Standard... i tryed on a 27 but damn, i couldn't button the top button...

but the legs from knee down are PERFECT! Just the Waist and thigh are really, really tight... i can lift my leg just a little bit...

 

what do you think, should i buy the 27 or its better to go with a 28 like i have in my PS?

They are so damn tight... but from knee down are perfect!

27 fits me like a second skin... very unconfortable... but if they would stretch... they would be perfect?

 

What do you think?

 

thx for your help
