    eh... APC no longer allows retailers to discount their denim range. Discount code prob won't work.

    There're other good products in APC price range. Crate, for example, makes a handful of straight cut models. With Secret Service's SF discount, come up to be less than APC too.

    They just look like they need to be washed.

    Also, I don't think that I've ever seen a guy look good in white denim.

    they look really great actually. I'd be interested to see how much they bleed out. my RLs I love but they bleed a tad bit more than i expected.

    Does anyone know if these jeans are going to stretch like usual dry denim jeans? I called The Gap product information line and none of them had any idea about dry denim.

    Oh I did not know this as the last time I bought a pair of NS from denimbar was a while ago. Druing that time a lot of the affliates were doing discount as well. I guess that's over with.

    how can you have raw whites? i mean it wont fade or anything, so what would be the difference between a raw or washed white jean?

    How can you not have raw white denim? Raw means they are untreated/unwashed. I mean you can have raw chinos and they don't fade like indiglo.

    I think he meant why would you want them?

    Not for the fades, but for the unique way they form to your body.

    Just thought I'd weigh in - got a coupon code a while back and grabbed a pair of the elevated low-rise straight fits.

    Denim weight is meh, but the dyeing is actually pretty decent, plus you get hidden rivets and a button fly. At $90, I'd still spend the extra $35 or whatever for APC (although APC doesn't have hidden rivets), but once these go on sale they'll be a real nice cop.

    How's the sizing on this denim? Do you suggest sizing down or just go regular.

    If you are going for the cut/fit because you want some NS without the tapered then thats fine but if you are going for selvage/raw, might as well shell out for APCs with a discount code. Trust me, you'll be happier and more satisfied in the long run IMO. The reason why I said this is because I haven't been happy with indiglo jeans from mall brands (h&m, gap). They bleed waaaaaaaay too easiliy and they look like crap after they lose the stiffness. Even at 30-40 a pop, I'll try to score a lighly used pair of APCs.

    P.S. The white one looks very nice though.



    APC's aren't nice either, you'll just end up buying a nicer pair eventually so why bother with APC?

    PCs are built to last, are cut pretty well, fade beautifully, and pretty much blow away anything in their price range. I agree that they're in a different league than repro brands, but they're excellent jeans for the (discounted) price.

    And as for the post you quoted, I agree with the bleeding issue; I can tell these new Gaps will bleed like crazy, but I actually feel like they'll result in a decent fade. I think they're def worth half a pair of APC.

    Oversized, like all Gap. The a 36 waist on the Elevated Low Rise Straight measures almost 39" out of the box (rise is around 11", leg opening around 9").

    I actually don't mind the straight fit from the GAP. It can be better but what can I expect for that price right. Anyways, would you recommend that I get them in my normal GAP size or a size lower.

    :/ I wouldn't say APCs are built all that well... and there are a lot of jeans in that price range that are comparable if not better
