    is there a difference between 100% cotton APC's and 98% cotton 2% polyurethane APC's?

    Yes. The latter are called "Leger." They are lighter weight and manufactured completely in Japan. They probably have a bit more stretch.

    I have both and prefer the 100% cotton originals. The leger will be much less rigid on first wear and will probably not fade as dramatically, stack or honeycomb as much.

    So what's the verdict on the APC Supreme's on ebay? I've seen many pairs go real cheap. The seller is sexypassion758 and ships from China, so I'm pretty wary. Example link:

    Any tips on how to stretch my thighs, been taking two steps at a time on the stairs and doing some squats, but any other options?

    I will order a pair of New Standard's. I have never owned any APC jeans before, so I'm very unsure about the fit. I am normally a 33, in Our Legacy, Levi's, Lee, Acne, 32 sometimes, Whyred, and I think I've had 34 sometimes in the past too. Should I go for 32 with these? I know it's normal to go down 1-2 sizes.

    Cross your legs as best you can when sitting down.

    Does the APC store in NYC still run the trade in discount? If so, what is the procedure there?

    you shouldn't buy these even if they're real.

    I agree, I always thought this collaboration was pretty stupid. I can't see why I would want to be walking around with jeans that have "fuck em" stitched on to the back pocket. Kind of defeats the purpose of APC's minimalist style and adds nothing desirable to the jeans.

    Got my first pair of APC last week after all the recommendations here and am wearing it today to my office...

    Boy, this thing is tight around the hip, especially sitting down. I hope it stretches out like people here say it would [​IMG]

    The real "problem" with new APCs isn't that they're super tight, it's that they're super rigid. You will be able to move around in them after a month or so.

    I found my APCs mega-rigid until I spilled beer and got them all shitty and smelly. Ran them through a cold cycle in the wash and I didn't lose any colour and they're a lot softer now. The inseam shrunk a tiny bit too.
