1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I currently have some New Standards and love them, but I want something with a more tapered leg to wear for a more 'dressy' look (read: italian dress shoes etc).

    Would I be best with Petite Standards or New Cures?

    Also, I bought the New Standards in size 30 and after a month of wear (just about every day) they are pretty relaxed (when i got them they were super tight on my waste and thighs...

    Should I go for a 29 in the Petite Standards/New Cures or stick to a 30?


    whats with this taper the taper trend? are you super tall and have larger feet?

    its funny actually. i mean, its a little different look, but cool i suppose [​IMG]

    so do apc's not stretch out much? it looks like they fit okay in the waist and stuff...

    you almost have that dior cut look in the back.


    APC's stretch a ton, but like everything, theres a limit. these are size 28's and where i wear my jeans (on my hips) currently measures 34" to 35".

    what exactly is this pose?
    LOL like he's rippin a big one. Is it practical to own a pair of NS and NC? I'm just wondering if they'll end up with similar fades.. I like my NS a lot and I can rock it with a lot of fits, but I want a skinnier fit raw too and dunno if I should go with NC or switch brands..

    yeah thats a picture i posted a while ago in waywt i dont get what you're saying.
    apologies if this seems rude, but your apcs used to fit you almost perfectly. Now, it's like you're mildly obese.

    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.

    Went there, got a pair of NS. Me and my friends were the only customers in the store for a part, I think we were outnumbered by the staff, was kinda weird. Helpful people though. Wearing it around NY was painful for a day, but they're feeling a lot better already.

    Need some sizing advice on a pair of Petit Standards.
    Should i size down 2 or 3 on petit standards?

    I purchased a pair of New Cures in size 26 from Context. The waist was fine aka tight and difficult to button up. I wasn't into the tapered leg so i'm sending them back for a pair of Petit Standards in the same size. I'm reading information now that the PS are looser, and I should get them in sz.25?

    This is my first time buying/trying on APC jeans. I'm following the general advice of sizing down 2. For reference I usually wear a 28 in Uniqlo jeans and my waist measures at 29.5 inches.

    i'm trying to go for similar fit to this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jonsc/4312617168/

    Thanks

    ... Oddly enough, not a denim question.

    I was looking over their Collection and I am dying to know when their Vest Coat (http://uscheckout.apc.fr/browse.cfm/4,890.html) will be available.. I know I can just go ahead and pre-order it, but.. my lust for it avoids the temporal!

    So I guess this isn't as much of a question as it is a...

    You sure they exist in black? I haven't seen black NCs at the Mercer St. store.
