    Hello

    I was looking at APC's web site. Is their unisex jeans the same as the hipster jeans.

    Thanks

    Hipster is the women's jean.

    Not sure what the unisex is, cure perhaps?

    Actually I think the Unisex is the "Jeans Etroit" (narrow) which is the same as the NS but with a narrow leg. The hipster is a woman's jeans that has a lower rise than the NS

    isn't the Narrow the renamed Cure? as the Straight is the Rescue.

    OMG APC JUST PICK SOMETHING AND STICK WITH IT.

    I am getting a headache.

    Between the constant name changes and the sizing issues, buying a pair of APCs off the web is like playing roulette.

    on the european apc site they have a new model SLIM which is skinnier than the narrow or "cure".

    so for men its now

    straight
    new standard
    narrow
    slim

    i think the slim jean will be my next purchase.

    BUT CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT

    seriously though, it does get a bit irritating. At least their sizes have standardised themselves a bit more.

    New Standard = New Standard
    Straight/Men's = Rescue
    Narrow/Unisex = Cure (I think)
    Low Rise/Women's = Hipster

    I think men can wear the hipster jeans, as well. I have a pair. I like them.
