About £20 for taper, £5 for chainstitching - Restore denim jeans, from £6.95 for small repair work. upto £19.95 for larger areas.

If you're London based, Son Of Stag (Shoreditch) does a good job for £15.

Used to live in Manchester so I've compared both, they seem about the same.
Denim Doc far better for bigger jobs, tapering etc.

They look good likephenomenon. What was your process to get them looking like this? how long did you leave them before the first wash etc?

Edit: piss take on the price raise. The APC store in shoreditch has full stock last time I was in (2 weeks ago)

Was in Liberty today and the new season APC denim was the usual £115/£125, one of the fits (think it was New Standard) was only £85 for the raw indigo Puzzled

Not sure if it's the New Standard, it may have been Rescue, it just wasn't the Petit Standard basically is all I remember.

Oh and that pair of black Petit Standard on Mr Porter for £195 is a seasonal denim, dry denim, just been on the APC site and it's part of the resort collection not their mainline denim, so I don't think they're denim is going up. The regular raw black denim petit standard is still it's usual price, so I don't think we need to get our knickers in a twist about APC doing an Acne on us.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but APC denim has been going up in price for years now. The next increase is inevitable, and the normal apcs are dry denim.

is it normal when sizing down 2 in ns not to be able to do up the top two buttons?

i've got a few pairs of apc sized down 2 that fit me well, but all bought second hand. so i know these jeans should fit me, unless the sizing has changed that is.

seems to be a lot of uncertainty over whether the sizing has actually changed though.

Even though it's highly unlikely because most stores sold out in PS and NS pretty fast, some of them could still have some old batch still in stock, who knows…emailing the store and asking them could clear some doubts.

Anyway, i would go for a second hand pair at the moment Puzzled

Bit of an odd question, but whats the usual sale price of APC black, non raw jeans? Is £70 good for a pair of PS blacks?

I've got a pair of black NS (not the over dyed ones and are non selvage) and I've had them since November last year. I've hardly worn them but do they stretch as much as the indigos? These are pretty tight all round.

in my experience, apc's and diors, non indigos always seem to stretch less. maybe different denim? idk

Petit Standards at Mr Porter - anyone know if they are TTS? Ordered recently?

Thinking of copping a pair before the price hike.

It says 'Fits true to seize' but I believe there for some confusion over whether that really was the case.

Thinking I should perhaps size down 1 anyway.
