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

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.

BUT CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT

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