APCs are built to last, are cut pretty well, fade beautifully, and pretty much blow away anything in their price range. I agree that they're in a different league than repro brands, but they're excellent jeans for the (discounted) price.
And as for the post you quoted, I agree with the bleeding issue; I can tell these new Gaps will bleed like crazy, but I actually feel like they'll result in a decent fade. I think they're def worth half a pair of APC.

Oversized, like all Gap. The a 36 waist on the Elevated Low Rise Straight measures almost 39" out of the box (rise is around 11", leg opening around 9").
