    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]


    They'll stretch, I promise. The big thing with new APC's is just how stiff and rough they are. I recommend soaking them, personally, as it sort of softens them up... they will shrink a little, though, which may be a problem if you've already sized down a few.

    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.

    Completely agree. Was considering going this route if (against all odds) they were authentic and looking into a seam ripper. I don't have any desire to carry that message.

    Going to NYC for a week on Thursday, plan on doing a lot of shopping. Best place to look for some APC jeans? Mostly looking for helpful staff.

    How's about the A.P.C. store? I think there are a couple in NYC. You are most likely to have the widest selection there as well.

    I'm thinking of trading my 30 NC for a 29 or 30 NS. I'm not sure if I like the tight fit right now of the 30 NC, will NS be any better? I could've sized down on NC to a 29 so I'm guessing anything in the 28-30 range of NS should fit me.

    Since I won't be wearing it every day, it might take 2 years to stretch them out. [​IMG]

    IDK about soaking... the hard times are when the honeycombs and whiskers settle in. That period and the period up till the first wash are prob the most critical. I think I ruined my NS by not making the right moves in that time period

    Yay, I just got my APC NS 28s, they fit perfect. Well not perfect, a little tight, but they're starting to fit perfectly [​IMG] I'm 160 lbs 5'9" if that helps anyone. I'm surprised I had to actually size 2 down from Diesel size (meaning around 3-4 sizes down). Side question: Is there a version of APC jeans that are more tapered than NS with the rest being the same fit?

    Closest thing is the New Cure, but those are a little tighter everywhere. I had my NS tapered from mid thigh down and they fit perfectly now.

    First APC's; PS 31, sized down 2. About a month of wear.

    Should I hem or leave? I cant decide. At first I wanted to hem but now started to like the stacking.

    ^ I like the stacking don't hem imo.

    I have never got my jeans altered before, did they turn out pretty nice? I really like the NS, but I wish it was a tad bit more tapered. Is that something I wanna do before I wear it a lot if I do?
