That model's face makes me incredibly angry. Incredibly. I can't even look at the clothing.

Just having the neck of a turtleneck peek out looks almost as shitty as wearing those boots unzipped.

I'm surprised jet's running with a ghetto brand like APC. It's gotta be like shopping at UO for him. Edit: I'm not terribly impressed with most of the looks, especially the ones with the Indian boots. Looks sloppy as all hell. The Columbo and 2/3 button jacket look pretty good, though. Just try to tell me you wouldn't sucker punch this kid if you saw him on the street:

I asked a girl I know to look it over and see what she thought. Immediately the first thing she said was "well that guy looks ridiculous."

I quite like the evening jacket and the "Narrow Tunisian Pullover".

That was my most hated pic also hahaa. APC is good shit when it's not made in china.

I've lost interest in this brand, the fabrics are complete garbage, don't think I'm buying anything else from them after this polo I recently bought. Good thing I retired all my APC denims.

You're dismissing the entire line because of one polo (which have always been terrible)? What else have you handled from apc besides the jeans?

They do have some nice shit, I really dig my wool military jacket from this season. That's a nicely designed leather jacket that they put out too. I just already have an awesome one that's too similar... Most of this season in general looks solid and quite wearable (though it's not all my asthetic). Also, get over the fact that most models suck/look weird for a lot fashion brands, and specialty clothing line. I've just started to not really care and focus on what I'm intending to buy: clothes, not some model's face.

PC just seems expensive for what it is. There's not a huge quality increase in fabric / construction to really justify paying twice as much for an identical item from J Crew or H&M

APC's prices are just marginally too high to justify. for their jackets at least. i really like the button up hooded windbreaker but not for $260. if it was around $150 even $180 i probably would have bought it.

I wouldn't consider H&M and J Crew the same in quality.

I agree it's overpriced somewhat that sense, however, some of the designs do put them a notch over these sort of options. I'm willing to pay a little more premium on certain pieces, but would never pay for APC prices for all my basics to populate the wardrobe. Same goes for a lot of these more fashionesque brands.
