post #9436 of 12957

Hello,

 

anyone knows where I can get apc's in germany, or get them delivered without huge porto?

I'm 28/29 in levis 511, which size should i buy. I'm 5'7 and 125pounds, so ps or ns. How snug do they fit?.

 

Thanks

You should be good with either 28 or 29 for Petit Standard. If you want a tighter fit, go for 28. If comfort matters, 29 is your best bet.

By going with 28, it might be difficult to close the top button at first, but keep in mind that Petit Standard stretches up to one full size after two months or so of wear.

I personally recommend size 28.

A lot of french people speak english, but at least attempt to speak some french with them. like try and say "bonjour, blah blah"

They'll respond well and treat you well. If you just go up to them and say: "HEY YOUS GOT APC PS IN SZ30" you might not get as good of service...that applies to restaurants/trainstations/etc

Question for all,

Is the NC as nut hugging as the PS? I'm looking for something a little more tapered than my NS' but I find the rise on Petit's to be slightly uncomfortable (perhaps a consequence of overly startched jeans?)

thoughs?

tough call, nc is higher rise but the whole top block is probably a bit tighter than ps. nc are definitely not tapered though, in fact on me there was a distinct flare at the bottom, noticeably wider than my straight leg ns.
have you considered getting a pair of ns tapered down to 7" hem.
post #9442 of 12957
That what I was thinking. Should the taper begin above or below the knee? Since you own the PS, what's your thought on the rise.

Cheers.

that;s a pretty interesting thought. 

post #9444 of 12957
The fact that the NS is not tapered is common knowledge. The PS is tapered. NS upper block is a little bit tighter than PS. Otherwise they are very close. NS might have a little more rise.

For those familiar with naked and famous, the Skinny Guy is based off the NS and the Weird guy based of the PS. Obviously they aren't exactly the same. APC has a higher rise (at least to me).

Am I crazy, or have they changed the measurements on the PS in the past year? I could have sworn the rise was lower last year.

Why don't you just take the NS to a tailor and get them tapered? That's my plan for my next jeans. The PS is sweet, but they don't work so well with shirts bec. of the low rise.

So I did go to the APC store in Paris. The employees were very friendly. I do know some French, so I started with that, but the guy helping me spoke perfect English. I wear a 30 in Levi's 511s, but I fit easily into a size 27 PS. I thought I should size down since they weren't very tight at all in the waist and the salesperson agreed. He gave me a 26 PS and 27 NC to try and I could barely squeeze into either. In both cases, I couldn't button the top two buttons and struggled to get out of them so he recommended I stick with the 27 PS, but that I will probably need to wear a belt in a couple weeks. I've been wearing them for like 24 hours straight now. The APC guy recommended I hem them 9cm, but I might do something more like 6. What do you guys think about the fit? I am getting some pretty ugly knee spikes going on.

I'm wearing 29/32 in 511 levi.

I'm 5'7, 125lbs. I have quite long legs 32'' inseam compared to my height. I want a nice stacked look and nice slim jins that are snug around the calves but not skintight, no jeggings. Should i get the New standard or petite standard from APC. I'm a bit concerned about the leg opening(6'') and knee (7'') for petite standards27''. I like the measurements from the petite standards 28'', but i have the concern that they will be too lose around the waist after some time. If i want to go for a stacked look, should i go size 28/27 petite standards or size 27 New standards?

I like the fit in this picture:

Thanks for the answer ^_^
