Usually find their stock levels to be pretty good along with the customer service. Did you ask for more sizes/something you didn't see on the rails?

meh, wanted to order my PS in black denim (with selvedge) next week and it sold out on cultizm and tbs as well in the last days (need 29).

i was happy to have a 10% voucher for cultizm or a 15% discount for tbs…pretty frustrating. will go for a RAW 29 instead, i own mine in 28 but i don't like the area knee downwards, could be a little bit more relaxed. think the waist then will need a belt but that's ok. sized down 2 on the 28 and worked out pretty good Smiling

Just received my New Standards from MW. Material is wayyy off the quality it was and is now made in China!? When did that happen?

i am confused. i own a 28 RAW (made in macau, bought last year) and a friend bought one this year i think and it is also made in china.

mine is pretty tight, ok but tight (only in the knee downwards area, thigh and waist is good). that's why i ordered a 29 now. i tried his 28 and it did not stretch that much in the waist as mine but his legs are less tight than mine which is pretty confusing his one is in a RAW status and mine is worn over a year.

i hope the 29 won't be too wide for me. @mod the black selvedge denim is made in japan and the normal RAW is now made in china.

i don't think that is bad, atleast the RAW of my buddy is not worse than mine quality wise. they are still great Smiling

made in macau (been made there for years) and made in china is the same thing essentially.

On Zoom's pair he said they faded much faster than his previous APC's, though he didn't mention where the denim was made.

mine did not fade that much when i wore them over 1 year. guess the chinese ones fade faster Cool

if the 29 fits that i will receive the next days and they are made in china i will test that out!

29, size down one. if you would be on the smaller side you could go for 28 but i am usually 30" (wear 28 like mentioned) as well in edwin for e.g.

I know that I should size down, but by how many. I'm 33 in Uniqlo jeans (skinny fit), what size should I buy some petit standards in?

I was thinking 32.

Don't size down to a 28 if you're a 30 in Edwins Laughing out loud

i tried on ed55 in a washed version 30 (the 30 raw was too wide and big everywhere) and they were everywhere like the PS in 28 Eye-wink

and tried the 29 apc as well, posted in the purchase thread (they are now classifieds here)! they are also too wide like the raw 30 from edwin!

went to apc store today near regent street and it's fucking bollocks. hardly any stuff, maybe like 3 pairs in each of the cuts… general clothes were maybe 2 rails worth. why's it so shit anyone know?

just seen this and went round about the same time. literally fuck all stock, properly disappointed… not just on cut n sew either - wanted to try on some of the new denim cut they do (petit new standards?) and they only had 1 pair left in a 29.. the shoreditch store is even worse though. absolutely fuck all. french girls in the shoreditch store were hot though

had a look and feel for the petit new standards today. the denim used is definitely not the same as the other models.
