Still not sure why Albam's jeans don't get more love, great for a 'first pair', construction isn't ridiculously fantastic, but the denim is great.
Such a deal at £85.

New pair of PS seem good quality still, not as good as few years back but not awful and definitely not 'soft'.

Albam are decent, don't rate their fit much though.

yeah that's what's annoying about all Albam's legwear, the fit is just too dad on nearly all the items. plus if you get a pair of albam slim leg jeans the leg length is 34" and up, so by the time you get it shortened the opening is a big as a regular leg anyway. fucking hell! Evil

Softer denim ≠ lower quality denim. Any brand can starch the fuck out of a pair of jeans.

APC denim is sanforized so it won't shrink/there is no point in soaking. All that will happen is that you will loose a bit of indigo.

quest is right, they only really shrink the amount they stretched (maybe a little bit extra but not enough to justify a soak)

in fact pre-soaking removes the starch which takes away the stiffness of the jeans. that'd affect the way the fades develop.

Wear them and they should loosen up a bit, but once they get skinny there isnt much movement that makes them loser - the waist will return to normal though.

Most of the Urban Outfitters stores in London sold PNS last time I checked.
