I'm afraid cuffing alone is not enough. it will only result like this:

They might look like that new, but as they wear they will become more like the look you want:)

So I just measured my APC PS's in a 27 because I was looking to get some new jeans soon (I was also just simply curious), and I was surprised by their measurements:

29.5" waist

10" rise

10.5" thigh

7 3/8" knee


(I didn't bother measuring the inseam or the leg opening, since they're cuffed and I didn't feel like undoing them.)


I measured them according to BlueOwl's guide:

http://blueowl.us/measurement-guide/



I've worn them maybe 10~15 times (always with a belt) for hours at a time doing nothing but sitting or walking, but they still seem to be too big (regarding the measurements, not the fit) considering their tagged size. Now I know that they could've stretched and all, but I'm thinking that, despite how closely I tried to follow BO's guide, I still really messed up measuring them somehow.

The reason I'm surprised is because these are larger than size 28 slim tapered jeans from Japanese brands, which I used to think were (usually) too big for me

What do you guys think?

size 27 is 28" in actual size. with 15 wear, I don't see why it's strange if they're stretched to 29.5"? my size 26 NS have 29" waist after about 15 wears.

I recently bought a 28 petit new standard APC washed black jeans and I'm not really impressed by the quality and where it manufactures (Macau). I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations for washed black jeans? and what would be my preferable size? Thanks a lot!

post #20123 of 20856

For those of you that don't like slim fit, what do you wear?

 

Looking to get a few pairs, and I have no idea where to start.  Best quality for under 120 a pair?

 

6'2, 205 pounds, and I lift although I have a thin frame if it helps.

i am saying it again, i never find APC such a good pair of jeans, i dont know whats the fuss about the brand.

well, are your jeans very pitch dark or denim dark, just cold soaked in cold water with woollite dark. 

and hang dry,

about your size i dont know what  sizes  your wear so i cant help you there.

they will stretch to two inches as you wear ....APC, thats their norm.

I'm guessing that it will the classic Levi's, Wrangler, Lee etc that will fit you best.

Anything with a bit of stretch will also be more comfortable on your waistline.

Some high end designers also do soft lighter weight pants or jeans with pleated fronts that will be comfortable and flatter you more if you don't mind spending.

Lots of brands will be ok if you just size up on your regular size..

Hope this helps..smile.gif
Sizing up will just compound the no butt problem, no? Sounds like what he needs is a brand/model with a small back rise relative to other measurements.

By washed, I meant jeans that are already washed by APC, but not raw denim. Do you have any suggestions for pitch black jeans with good quality?

post #20127 of 20856

yeah, they will still stretch with more wear , its just their denim fabric they use. they stretch a great deal, i guess you will be comfortable in them after a while.

of course, i know a few brands that make pitch black denim thats all i wear. for me if i wear black , must be pitch black,

what sz are you ?

Probably the cut. Great for skinny people.
post #20129 of 20856

alright  i get that the APC fades are very outstanding , ,but there are other brands that are very good with skinny fits.oo. besides, APCs when they are worn and stretched, the waist gets so big but the other parts of pants not so much, so you end up with loose waist, which will lead to hanging on your hips.

i think they're over rated...

Got a Newb question...

I ordered some RRL denim just to try as I've heard some good things.

I tried like 3-4 different washes, all in slim fit. Still waiting to receive. They are all "selvedge" I'm assuming?

I had a nice discount code to use so I went crazy, but besides paying for the name, what "extras" am I paying for in a RRL jean besides the selvedge seam at the bottom? I know there's a $70ish markup at least because it's RL, but what else should I look for in deciphering a "quality" jean?
