This is me in size 25 Petit Standards

I was probably a hair under 130 lbs at that time. I stand at 5'7".
They're tight in the top block at first but stretched well over a full inch in the waist.
Wish I had pics focusing on the lower half. They stack beautifully in my opinion.

Haven't seen that pic before stevie. Nice photo, prime example of raw denim. Wear/wash history on that pair at that time?

I just finished giving my new standards a good beating for half a year(30), gonna wear my PS more now(31). I'm not very slim but I still think PS is a more interesting cut in many regards. As mentioned above, stacking looks so much better on a tapered pair. They're also much roomier in the top block, but they are one size up from NS tho. I guess you need to size down NS more aggressively for a slim look whereas with PS you can get a slim silhouette without sizing down as much. I think next time time I'll just get TTS PS.

Same feelings. First off -- love that fade in the picture. Second, the PS seems to have a much better cut to me, just in general. That said, I only size down one for them...I'm not the drop 3 type of guy!

Thanks guys. The jeans were about a year and a few months old when the pic was taken and hadn't yet been washed. They've been washed twice and have had 2 repairs since then. Really beat to shit now. Hopefully I convinced hoechi to size down on his pair since he seems to be about the same build as myself.

Hey, I'm looking at black APC PS and there seem to be two kinds, MIJ and Faux Noir. What is the difference between these two?

Mij are a matte black with no undertones of white. They have a slight sheen and and an "up-down-left-right" thread pattern, whereas the faux noir look more like their normal jeans, but with black thread in place of blue.

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 ^_^



i'd say don't size down more than 2 for PS unless you are 100% sure sizing 3 down will fit. 3 is the absolute max, it is inhuman to go more than that.

I've been looking to purchase APC New Standard jeans and I am new to the selvedhe trend. I've been instructed to size down. I typically wear a 31 or 32 depending on the fit. When I tried these jeans on in store, they sales rep suggested a 30 since he claims the jeans will stretch. I tried the 30 on a they are tight tight tight... I am just able to button them. Please share your experience with these jeans and why your recommendation is. Also, the jeans are super tight in the crotch area...

Also, if I want just a little whiskering is the recommendation to wash them as soon as they look how I want them to look long term?

so I just picked up a pair of APC PS in size 29 today that were only work a handful of times. they fit great and are fairly roomy. it's just a little weird because my size 28 were incredibly tight and difficult to even button up fully. i'm just wondering if one size can make that much of a difference

Jebus...I'm a DJ...full time not like everyone's a DJ...and I know studio gear/audiophile stuff is expensive...but there's a whole forum for $800 headphones?!?!

But to answer your question....yeah, one size can make a lot of difference. I generally order a few sizes that can be returned. One always feels super tight, one tight but bearable, and one feels loose. I always go with the one in the middle.

Which reminds me, if anyone is interested in a pair of size 30 PS that have been worn a week, PM me.
