    Well, just ordered my first pair of APCs, New Standards. Hope they fit. They actually had this duffle coat on clearance, if anyone's interested..not bad if you use the SF coupon code.

    Are there any cuts similar to that of Levi 511 (Skinny). I feel like most of the APCs I see and the one pair I have tried on are extremely skinny like Levis 510 super skinny.

    Wondering the same exact thing. Anyone have any insight?

    Code sfdec works at Need Supply on APCs for 15% off. I picked up a pair for less than $150. It's not much of a discount, but it's better than nothing.

    Yes, I would say that the A.P.C. Petit Standards are similar to the Levi's 511. Size down 1 size from your Levi's size. Raw denim stretches a bit, so it is best to try them on at a Barney's Coop to confirm what size works for you. Personally, I wear a 31 Levi's and a 30 in the Petit Standard.

    Wow, my New Standards are almost 6 months old and still look brand new. I am super careful with them, though. Yours look good, but I'll still take mine (which are starting to feel like leather).

    Guys I need some advice.

    I'm sized 31 for nudie slim jims and 29 for Naked and Famous Weird Guys and I want a pair of APC NS.

    Should I get a tagged size of 28 for APC? Please help!!! I'm ordering real soon and I'm super excited

    Edit: nevermind, I figured it out I think, my true waist is 32" which is a size 30 in APC. So if I size down for a slim fit for 31", that is a size 29 in APC. so a 29 and not a 28. Yeah?

    I'm heading to Paris this March. Are prices at the Paris APC store any cheaper? I know the Surplus store is there as well, but can't count on anything there.

    Is there any rule of thumb for comparing NS sizing to 501's? Or just 4 down from natural waist?
