A.P.C. Petit Standards

So I just picked up a pair of APC petit standards. A search of the forum revealed little discussion on these jeans. Is this merely due to them being a fairly new fit and the apparent limited availability? What are people's thoughts on them?

I find the fit to be SPOT ON. Previously, I had given new standards a try, but to get the leg sufficiently slim I needed to size down to the point that I was losing my ability to father children. I was never a huge fan of the taper on new cures. The petits seem to have answered my jean prayers.

i'm really interested in these jeans and a lot of places that carry APC don't seem to carry these for some reason...you should post pics of these.

I think a lot of people are deterred by the name. Petite standards are more like New Standards than New Cures, but on the APC site they look tiny as fuck.

So these are more tapered than NS but less tapered than the NC?

i saw your pics and it looks like a great fit.. what size were they? would you buy them again if you could size down (1 or 2)?

They're tapered more than New Cures but have a lot more room in the thigh and waist.

excellent! i'm liking them more and more now... now all i need is sizing info and an online retailer that will mark down the price when shipping to Canada


in the NS i'm a 29 sized down 3 (tight but will stretch out)

is anything else different about the petites?
