Hello Guys

Of the guys out there. Who are wearing them. What do you think about them. I just bought a pair. They fit me pretty well. I am a slim guy. It's not a real tight fit for me. I don't consider them women jeans.

Thanks

I have a pair. They fit really low, the pockets are also very small and the right one is nearly unusable as it's really hard to stick your hand into it. I think they're definitely women's jeans. Not that that deters me from wearing them.

Brian SD also has a pair.

my hipsters are in rotation with my rrds and ssds and i'm wearing them right now. the legs are just right for me. i really like the low rise; that was one of the best features about skinners until i started to prefer straighter cuts. although, the pockets are too small. I just keep my cell in the left pocket and let my keys hang off the coin pocket

I love mine, after the initial soak I put them on damp to stretch them a little, and balled my hands up in the pocket openings making them actually useful. I can actually get my phone in and out of my right pocket (as long as I am standing up and I dont have a zippo in the coin pocket).

just got 2 hipsters in the mail thanks to denimbar... unfortunately one of them is the older (i'm assuming since it's made in tunisia as opposed to macau) model and only has 3 buttons. hopefully i'll get over it.

will the length shrink? i've read the epic apc thread on superfuture and some have said the length shrank 1-2inches from a soak and some say they didn't shrink at all because they're sanforized. i probably will never throw them in the dryer...

Concerning APCs in general, perhaps if data could be collected concerning the amount of shrinkage from a cold soak, and the manufacturing location, a connection could be found? Such as, tunisias would shrink 1-2 inches, and macau not at all?

Or maybe APC knows this sort of thing if you talk to them by phone? Just tossing out some ideas here

Mine are from Macau and shrank just under 2" with a "cold" soak (cold water isnt very cold in FL)

2" in the length, correct? Waist should shrink 1/4" or so.
