    Gotcha. Funny you say that because I am sort of in the same boat. My first pair of dry denim was APCs, but I have since sold them and tried other brands of raw denim. However, no I'm looking to get another pair of APCs again, heh.

    Hi all,

    Must say awesome thread.

    I own a pair of April 77 Joey size 31, New Cure size 31 and Skulls 5010xx size 32.

    Im looking at another pair of APC jeans, and my mate recently got the APC x Supreme Petite Standards. Im thinking about getting a pair of normal Petite Standard.

    Just need someone to confirm for me that the true waist size on the Petite Stanard size 30 is 32inches.


    Thanks [​IMG]

    NC is skinnier. PS has a lower rise, roomier top block and as a result of that, more dramatic taper. NC is very skinny all the way through until the ankle, where the hem opening flares out a little to it's knee measurement.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Would you please tell me what szie ( PS or NC) do i get if i want to put on it like nudie thin finn w28.
    The true measurement of NC and PS with the same size on official web site ,
    the data of NS is bigger than NC.
    Would you please tell me that why NC is skinnier ?

    Thank you very much . [​IMG]

    I got 2 blobs of white paint on my 3 week old PS.
    Ended up having to sacrifice indigo in order to get it off
    Now my right leg has 2 rather weird loook faded patches on the side of the thigh...
    Damn.

    Actually i find that the new cures don't really taper all that much but they're just really skinny in the leg. My old size 30s were like 7.3" at the hem but really tight in the thigh. I dunno, i hated the NC cut. My petite standards fit miles better and are the perfect slim-skinny but not skinny-tight fit.


    Also, no jeans ever get "comfortable" imo. I'd always much rather be in shorts or roomy sweats but after awhile raw denim becomes like any other jean


    yeah you're right. I recently put on my PS and think they fit pretty good. its not as tapered looking as i remember. I'll post fit pics later to get some opinions. They're about 2 weeks worn in so i think all stretching is done (hopefully).

    whats up, I have been looking to buy the A.P.C rescue. I am a size 34 in mall denim. I don't want a skinny fit. I know the NS are very popular on this forum I was thinking those just might be to slim of a fit for my taste. So should I really go to a 32 or go 33 for a looser fit.

    32. Sizing down two isn't much in rescues. I sized down 4 and have been happy.

    I'm not familiar with the Thinn Flinn cut, or Nudie sizing for that matter. But disregard the measurements; I own both cuts in the same size and the New Cure is FAR tighter. I already addressed why- the rise is lower on the P.S so it sits lower, it also has a bigger thigh; the new cure is tight from waist til the ankle where it opens up a bit.

    Any bets on when the euro will be at its lowest vs GBP? I want to order some new new standards direct from apc soon, hoping for a bargain if Greece doesn't get a bail out on Thursday...

    Any of you own APC PS and own RRL jeans? Which RRL jeans fit similar?

    Where can I find a pair of Petit Standards in black? They're sold out in every size on the APC webstore, and I can't seem to find them at any of our affiliates

    Try calling a physical APC store like the one in NYC and LA. They often have different stock instore. They do phone orders on non-sale things i believe
