    Pictures of the raw black APCs look really grayish in photos. Do they look similar in real life or are they a nice deep black? If not can anyone recommend some good black denim with a cut similar to the PS and an equal or hopefully lower price?

    I saw a pair of black PS in person recently, and it had a white weft... hence the greyish appearance. I don't know if they make a black/black or not.

    Depends how hard you wore them.

    I got that, but that concerns the contrast fades.

    But in general with the color, stiffness, 'n stretch.. .

    there's a pair in this thread that should give you an idea of what to expect after 3-4 yrs of heavy wear, they don't seem to fade/comb much at all.

    Do APC NCs or APCs in general ever go on sale?

    I read back a pages and seemed like the WolfvsGoat site had a sale but right now I can't even find APC on their site.

    Thanks, much appreciated.

    K here's my situation I had a size 30 in New Standard that fit like this [​IMG] Too baggy, but alright in the waist Will a 30 in PS work better or still be too baggy in the ass/thighs do you think?

    I like the fit of my New Standards better and I prefer the inner leg stitching (single vs the double on the 3sixteen). That being said, the 3sixteen's have much better denim and are far higher quality.

    Almost never. You can find the occasional coupon code that will work, but it's rare.

    And WvG doesn't carry APCs.

    Went ahead and got a pair of size 30 petits.
    Hopefully these will be what I've been looking for!
    31 NCs were a bit loose in waist and too tight everywhere else
    30 NS were too baggy all over but alright in waist

    I ordered a pair of New Cures from NeedSupply.com for $157.50 using code: SFFEB10. Hope it helps!

    Were those initial wears? If so, how long did you have them on and how come you didn't want to wait for them to stretch? I'm expecting my first pair soon and would like to know what'd others do when it comes to fits. Thanks.
