If you've got tiny feet, you might snag some tennis shoes. If you're a 35 or 36, there might be some of those grey jeans left too.

Yeah, it sort of sucks for bargain hunting when a brand that you really like becomes really popular like this. Only a couple of years ago, you could wait weeks into the sale and still get great stuff in pretty much any size. There is a early thread here about APC when people were going to www.apc.com, and getting really puzzled
Now everyone and their dog knows the brand and the website (The new standard jeans made about 20 appearances in the last GQ.) On the other hand, it's nice to see a good brand do well. I do wish that they would bring back the old Anglaise cut though. They were perfect (well, for my tastes, anyway.) The "Rescue", or "Man" Jean, or whatever they are calling it now, is really no substitute.

Yeah, I took note of that too. I immediately thought that APC's PR firm did a great job schmoozing somebody at GQ.

I believe the sale only just started on June 13.

Yeah, I checked in a few hours after they sent the email notice, and it was slim pickings already. It's like J. Crew sales, except they have the courtesy to put "sold out" on their color/size pulldown, so you don't get your hopes up

So I guess it's safe to assume that most of the stuff in the store would be out as well?

yeah, that's what i'm wondering. there was this amazing APC hooded cotton jacket in a tan color at the SF Rolo on Howard that isn't even on the APC site. i'd pick it up in a second if it was on sale. OK, just answered my own question. The Rolo is not having a sale on APC stuff right now. -Jeff

It was such a nice jacket!!!!!

Actually i dunno i find their other non-jean stuff kind of decent but overpriced. And as far as their jeans go, i definitely love my new standards to bits but it's kind of a standard (well, duh) sort of thing, something you buy on the one-off and keep forever.

That's why the sales were great! The quality, imho, has actually gone downhill in the past little while. Ah, growing pains...

Another testament to their popularity: I was at Azeala in SF the other day and they had a waiting list for the shipment of Rescues and New Standards they just got in. They expected to sell them all in about a week.

arggghhh...they really are sold out. I ordered some sneakers two weeks ago (the wrong color), exchanged them, and today saw that they refunded my money!
