    Looks great! Did you size down one from true waist size? Also, for people with the u neck tees, are the shirts more fitted? Or are they relaxed fit? The pics look like they're a bit long Thanks!

    Did you size down or go true to size? I'm cancelling my backorder of the APC x Kanye West Stonewashed Denim because of these.
    Also, are those Common Projects? Dope. I have the Achilles Low in Black. Need a white pair.

    They're a 29, and I normally wear a 29 in Dior, and 30 in some brands that fit tts. They are a little bit loose in the waist, I definitely could've fit in a 28, but I decided I'm just going to keep these and wear a belt with them.

    I went basically tts, maybe down a half size. (I wear 29s and 30s depending on the brand). And that's funny you say that, I was planning on getting the APC x Kanye's as well but I'm glad that I went with these instead. Yeah they're white CP's, I may end up selling them though since they may be a little narrow for me.

    I thought APC doesn't let you cancel orders unless it within 30 mins of the order.

    The sizing chart is confusing. If I'm a 31 waist, do I really want to be ordering a size 28?? In 3Sixteen, I'm usually a 30 or 31; APC New Cure a 29.

    I think a 29 would be good for you. Bare in mind though the washed denim runs more TTS - for the washed jeans you are closer to a 30 or 31, raw likely a 29.

    Glad to see you on here! The sweats are almost ready. Like I said, we're not setting a hard date for the launch yet but expect them sometime around the 15th, and I will be giving the forum the first heads up!!!

    The sweats are 16.5 oz. They are not super heavy but are a more substantial fabric than last spring.

    Is there going to be enough items produced to satisfy the market? I know you're a relatively new brand, but I hope things don't sell out the first day.

    what's sizing like on the uneck tees and hoodies? looks at least a size slim relative to TTS, hoodies look possibly even slimmer (20.5 PTP on the L riga hoodie is really slim for a L, more like a slim M)

    I can attest for the U-Neck Tee. I have the Gray, purchased in a size Medium. I'm 5'8" 165-170 lbs, athletic build. It is slim, but not too slim, fits me nicely. The curved bottom hem is indeed long tho.

    I got my Coast Jean in size 31. They fit a lil too snug so I'm returning for a size 32, which is my TTS. I don't want to spend time trying to break them in and stretch them. So for those going with washed denim, go true to size as has been suggested.

    I would like more opinions regarding the hoodies though. I was probably just gonna purchase a medium when they release.

    M is your typical size in tees, and this fits slimmer or less slim than typical for you?

    Quote:I suppose M is my typical size. I'm like a Smedium because I lift. The fit is a lil slimmer than a typical T, but still kinda drapey and lightly loose fitting if that helps at all. I must say, the quality of the shirt is amazing. It's super soft. I posted a few pages back a similar style shirt that Zara is selling, which is decent quality, nice cut, but can not even compare.
