    I love the APC Petite Standards, but I need something a little thinner for the hot summer. Any suggestions?

    PC jeans are pretty thin dude why don't you try some lighter pants in the petit standard cut that APC makes.

    They do but they also make chinos, courderoys, poplin pants and all types of other pants in the same cuts as their jeans some of which would be a lot more suitable for hot summer. Honestly, you may be able to find skinny jeans that are thinner than APCs but not to the extent that you would be cool in them and hot in the APCs.

    Maybe the APC 'lightweight jeans'?

    I don't think you'll find any jeans thinner than apc. First time I held a pair I was surprised of how thinn and light they were. Like someone else said look for other fabrics.

    Wear a pair in, and the fabric will be thinner at points of higher stress

    +1 Get some lightweight pants/etc. Thinner jeans will break down and get blowouts even quicker than regular apc's and won't necessarily keep you that much cooler. If you do want to stick with jeans go for something like uniqlo's T000 or some spring/summer season Acne jeans- they'll be thinner than raws and have some stretch to them.

    I am looking for this also. I like the cut of the APC Petit Standards, but the material is so much thicker than most jeans that it makes my legs sweat. Uniqlo seems to have similar cuts if you live in NYC and they are only $40/pair. It would be nice to find more thinly woven raw with a good cut, however.

    apc thicker than most jeans? What jeans do you buy? All my old jeans were probably around 14-15 just judging by how my N&F deep indigos feel. Apc's are quit thin in my opinion. I'm not even sure if I've ever ran across any jeans much thinner than them.

    PC makes a lightweight petit standard. I have a pair of these, they're alright. You won't get amazing fades, but they soft and comfy as fuck fast.
