A.P.C. The official thread for APC questions. - Page 848

post #12706 of 12956
Bought a pair of NS a while back. Aside from being too tight in the crotch and waist, they had this weird leg flare on only one side. It flared out from knee down like bootleg jeans. I measured both sides and they were oddly equal. I think the problem had to do with some weird twisting of the denim when worn but it could not be "untwisted" no matter how hard I tried. Best I could describe it briefly.

I am hesitant to get a new pair because of this. Anyone else have this issue before? It literally threw of the entire fit visually.

PS may be too tight for me however. I was thinking of trying it 1 size up from the size of NS that fits me.

That seems like it would work out. Unless the cuts have changed since 4 years ago, the PS has almost the same top block as the NS. You should end up with a looser top block and a more tapered leg.

Sounds like it should work out perfect then, thanks!

OK so my sized down 4 NS' waist have become acceptable but the crotch area still crushes my balls and phones, especially when doing a stepping up movement. Anybody ever experienced loosening on that part?

also which do you think is nicer, APC or N&F left hand twill? Thinking of throwing the towel with my NS and replacing them with those.

My only complaint about my PSes is the the rise.

If you're trying to size down that much on NSes why not just go with a slim cut?

Because I stupidly trusted the shopkeeper that said I should only be able to button the first button with APC jeans baldy[1].gif

oh and i also felt other models' rise was too low. i'm a low hanger, you know.

I feel ya there. The rise on my PSes are terrible.

The general advice for sizing down was be able to button the fly, but not the waist. I think you should size up and get it tapered later if you feel like the hems too big.

yeah it's either sizing up or trying other brands with similar or cheaper price like naked n famous. but I don't know if it's just me or not but I see the fabric of APC jeans as more interesting. it has a cool shine to it that gives a luxury look.

Looking for some fit advice. I'm a natural 28 and bought a pair of petit new standard in 28. I know you're supposed to size down but wanted to try them anyways. The waist is like an inch too big but the rest of the leg fits decent. It's as tight as I would want them to be. If I size down to 27, will they be noticeably smaller overall? Here are some fit pics.









any current deals on the petit new standard in 27?

I just found out that APC now has jeans that have 2% polyurethane, and tried searching this thread to no avail(maybe bad search terms?). Has anyone used these? Size 27 New Standards have been my favorite jeans, but there are some days where I can't get behind the limited range of movement. Has anyone bought these and can they compare them to raw New Standards as well as offerings from other higher end brands with some stretch, like Acne? Trying to decide if these are worth the premium over my Uniqlo Skinnys, which I'm not entirely thrilled with in terms of fit or fabric(I do realize that they're only one fourth the price). Thanks.

I've tried on the black ones in the petit standard cut. But my problem with them is that inseam is shorter - in a 28 it's like 32.5 inches or something. So it's basically a different cut, doesn't look as good on me, because it looks like I'm wearing tights.

Details were nice on it though. Just a shame about the inseam.

I stand corrected about my previous statement regarding not having to size down 2 - my petit standard blues were a 29 (bought two years ago), but I went down to a 28 for my pair of blacks.

They stretched out so fast and feel about the same. So yeah, APCs are fuckin' annoying to size properly.
