It's not even targeted! That was in response to strictly or beedub saying apcs have too short rises for anyone with a fuller ass. It's an annoyance I've had with jeans before (albam).

Logic would suggest they're butler series used for the lookbook. The short rise also suggests this. APC did a faux butler series style jean in aw08 or 09 iirc, again not as nice as a properly worn in pair of raw denim and just looked a bit naff.

Was seriously hoping they'd get released, giving us those soccer mom monstrosities hurts even more.

Just check eBay.com regularly as there's always decent worn in apc's on there ranging from cheap cheap to $250.

Advice please on turn-ups: got a new pair of APC NS with the obligatory 36" leg.

My old Edwins were 32" and I had a single 1" turn-up on them.

The APCs need 3 turn-ups (and the denim is too stiff to make them less than a couple of inches) and still leave a fair bit of stacking. (I appreciate pics would be of help, but not possible at the mo'). What's people's experience here - a case for the denim doctor?

Not sure if this is helpful, but my apc are still unhemmed after two years of wear and multiple washings. They fit me perfectly whilst I usually need a 30 inch leg. They shrunk a lot, got some stacking but not that even that much. I wear them with 1 turn up.

Did someone say that Urban Outfitters stock APC? is that all branches?

Brad, i'd wear them stacked or rolled for a bit until you first wash them just to be absolutely sure you're not lopping too much off while they're new. Did this to a pair before (not apc) and after 1st wash, it was like I was wearing shorts. I kid you not.

Small amount of wool lite, lay them flat in the bath for an hour or so in slightly warm water.
