can anyone with experience tell me, is sizing down 3 for the new standard on some skin tight shit? or just slim.


It fit pretty nice for me everywhere but the waist. I had to suck in my stomach and I'm fairly skinny (5'10, 140lbs). I had to sag to mid ass (lol) to get it to look right though. I would rather go with 2 sizes down though.

its like the hate on here for people with supreme dior vans. Because so many posters wear that. But in real life the population of poeple who wear supreme dior and vans are so minute. I see what your saying, tons of people in WDYWT are wearing APC. Its popular right now, but if your area had a WDYWT you think it would be the same/?


You fail to compare apple for apple. It would NOT make sense to compare a specific market demographic with a market thats not entirely equivalent. Why would you compare APC with someone who does not know what APC is, or someone who isn't even into denim to begin with?

APCs are being worn by SO MUCH people because of obvious reasons. The only explainable acceptable truth is because they fade kind of quick and are very easy to get 'creasings', 'looks', accepted and appreciated by many. I have not seen CMs work of arts, blue bloods work of arts or many other 'brands'. That's how it is. Instead people drool over $500 denim that's just totally a downstream value chain.

I like APCs, but the inseams still looks a lot longer, even with stacking. So I am NOT GOING to force myself onto it, until I work my NUDIEs, CMs.

^^ Give yourself a break. And you have a PHD in English?

It's just the forums! No big deal!
I didn't know syntax would matter to people. Waste time ! And if you've picked up 'novels' or 'books' in general, you'd find syntax and grammar in PUBLISHED TEXTS to be completely 'unacceptable on your terms'. ;)

But I don't wanna prolong the useless sling. \

It is the first time they are making them, so I doubt anyone has any experience with jeans that arent out yet.

So I think I'm gonna bite a bullet and just buy some APC Rescues. What y'all think of 125-ish? Mind you, I'm in Canada, so it'll probably be about 5-10 more.

I'm sizing down 1, to a 31.

how bout new era, stussy shirt, raw denim, g-shock, and sbz or vanz?


I don't get the connection. Are you trying to say not a lot of people wear this combo in the real world either, yet it is obviously played out?

If so, I would have to say that I see kids rocking this combo on the daily at my school, in my community and all around socal. Well, maybe not the g-shock part.

^^^ probably 3 months more for anything worthwhile. I wore for 6 months and my honeycombs weren't even the "ideal."

np.

looks like im going to be doing the same.. what size you looking for? http://www.azaleasf.com/apcns.html has w33-35 for $140, i think shipping is free as well (tobi.com used to be the store for azalea boutique, but i dont know what's up now)

yea the price raise sucks. shipping's $9 for UPS ground, and if you live in cali you get to pay tax too (sucks for me..) as they'll ship from their LA store apparently.
