The overall fit looks very good IMO. Double monks go very well with slim denim and sweaters. The shoes don't look too pointy or squared toed either - they may have a slight square toe. Actually what brand are they, I'm in the market for double monks...

Allen Edmonds Neumora's, and one of my favorites.  I always come back to these because of their comfort, and regardless of what Vesper says, I get more compliments on these than my Carminas, Aldens, C&J's etc... :)

Thanks.  Exactly - I like living on that edge!

I disagree about the toe box, and think they're nice shoes. But I'd say they're a bit shiny and formal, and have a bit too much going on, to be worn with stacked jeans. They'd work a lot better with pants that have a slightly wider leg opening and less slouchy silhouette.

 

I just shined them... good eye.  I will see what kind of results I get with my shell brogues, but those feel even more formal than these DB's.  Style wise, there is just something about a tapered trouser with a pair of DB's has always appealed to me.

Aldens can look a bit old fashioned for some general commentators (I would know as I have a bunch of them). Double monks can look a bit more "fashion forward" to a lot of people and look nice without being too cheesy or showy. That said, I wear my APCs with Alden brogues and boots all the time and they work very well and get a lot of compliments.

Guys can anyone tell me what size to get for the APC x Kanye jeans? I want to get the stonewashed version, so I don't need to accommodate for stretching (or do I?). I owned size 29 Nudie Slim Jims but I can't fit into them anymore because my legs grew from gymming.

 

Thoughts?

On the Kanye jeans I would highly recommend buying them true to size unless you have chicken legs, then you can size down 1 from your true waist size. I'm a regular mall brand 30 and I bought them in a 29, you can see my thread in this forum

Just got them delivered today.

 

I am a 31 in Dior 19cm

I am a 31 in Saint Laurent 17.5

 

I am a normal 32 in most things 

 

Based on advice around the web, i ordered 32.

 

Will return it for a 30. About 2 inches around the waste. .

The black back zip boots from this season look similar in regard to leather and sole, so if they are made similar to the shoes from last F/W they are good shoes.

Cheers!
I agree, they look nice. I don’t like a cemented construction though and there are better options in this price range.

Does anyone know how the the stretch petit standard stretches?
http://uscheckout.apc.fr/browse.cfm/4,3250.html?nav=men

I understand that they stretch obviously because they have Polyurethane in them, but do they stretch more or less than some regular PS would stretch after time?

Mr Porter has a lot of APC on sale, including the black/grey New Standards and Petit Standards at 30% off.
post #12326 of 12679
My 33 indigo NS fit pretty well now. Should I get the same size in the black? Also, if I go for the Petit Standard should I go for 33 or 34?

Yes, I should have specified that the standard indigo are not on sale. But I'm glad I didn't buy RRL washed black jeans at $360 and instead will likely get either the NS or PS in "grey"

Hypebeast has APCs on sale 30% with code HBGIVING13. All APC products apply.
