I only have the sales slip for the moment (it's getting hemmed). The paper says "bleu acier", i.e. "steel blue". It is not washed.

Are you talking about these? I was thinking of buying them for this summer but was confused about sizing as well... So if I generally take a 33, I wouldn't have to size down one these to account for stretch?

No. The "steel blue" I'm talking about is actually indigo, or close to it. Very much like the classic A.P.C. raw denim color.
Nonetheless, I saw something like the sky blue pants you're showing, at the A.P.C. store - it was utterly bizarre, as it was not denim, but a chino (constructed like a chino) made in a cotton imitating denim. I wouldn't take it, even for free. But I don't know if it's your item. Believe it or not, they don't have much merchandise in the Parisian main store... You can make a request for something precise, and the salesman will leave the store and come back with it 5 minutes later; but there's pretty nothing to try in on display.

Oh, sorry for the long post. Anyway - please answer my post, quoted here:

She told me the denim for NS this season was different from their other denims, etc.

What do you think of it?

Hey guys i bought A pair of APC NS size 30
Im 5'10 should i get them hemmed to at least a 30 or 30.5?
or is that too short?
post #7524 of 12818
i think that might be a little short, you wanna still have some room to play around with a bit you know? who knows you might wanna stack, pinroll, have some big cuffs or small ones. try them out and wear them for a bit and see what you like, no rule that you have to hem right away

do you think the inseam will stretch out to a 32? So say i did got it hemmed to 30.5 you think they will stretch out longer?
post #7526 of 12818
They won't stretch in length, and please don't hem them to 30.5 thats way too short.

Does APC still run its trade in discount at its NYC store?

I remember that back in '08 they did when I bought my current NS's. Those NS's are on life support and I'd like to trade them in and perhaps get the discount on a new pair.

Ah, thanks. I have never actually seen them in person, as the only place where I live that carries APC is Barneys (and even my Barneys only carries New Standards...) and have never seen them in person.

Anyways, unless APC is using some sort of new denim that doesn't stretch out nearly as much, generally the rule is to size down 2-3 sizes for the NS, correct?

Sidenote: Can anyone comment on the quality of APC cords, and if they stretch out like APC denim? The grey cords on the site are tempting me, but don't know what size to order.
