    APC New Standards or APC Petit Standards?
    Depends on your body type... PS looks best on me. ( Especially due to the lower rise, which balances out my proportions; i.e. long legs + short torso )

    but the NS is a perfect straight cut on me. if you size the NS and the PS similarly it basically comes down to how slim you want your shit

    I love Acne jeans ( the 'Max' and 'Roc' cut at least ), have always been skeptical towards most of their other stuff, though. Especially the high-priced outerwear I've handled in person so far was pretty disappointing...

    Does anyone have experience with their leathers ?

    YAY or NAY at 50% off ?

    Going to get some black overdye jeans, so:

    1. Acne Max Cash

    or

    2. Naked & Famous Skinny Guy Black Stretch

    Leaning slightly toward the N&F due to the longer inseam, but not sure quite yet. Another other recommendations would be good.


    3. Acne Max Wet On Black

    http://shop.acnestudios.com/catalog/...wet-on-black/#


    Both of them will look pretty much identical in terms of the wash and they actually might fit quite similarly if you size them correctly (size up on N&F). The N&F ones are a little bit more rigid if I remember correctly, though, so they might not be as comfortable as the Acnes, though neither of them are particularly soft due to the nature of the treatment.

    I must say I'm liking those Wet on Blacks that Tee posted, though.

    While on the topic of Acne Max Cash, are they sized like Diors 19cm / 17.5cm (washed pairs)?

    I'm a 30 in my Cashs, a 30 in all washed 19cm Diors I've tried so far, a 31 in 17.5cm Nightfalls and somewhere in between a 29-30 in Dior 19cm MIJ Raws. ( I'd need a 29.5 for an ideal pre-stretch fit )

    No, unless you want to drop money on something that looks cheap, when it really isn't...

    If you purchase it, definitely don't wear it this way. I hate the contrast between the bulky upper part and the skinny bottom.
