I own a Petit Standard RAW Denim and bought the Black Overdyed Washed Black Version of the Petit Standard.

I want to get it tailored (Black ones) because it has an inseam length of 34,5", about 0,5" shorter than the regular RAW PS.

I own a pair of chinos which is about 32" in total length and is perfect for cuffing and showing off socks. Do you think I should just shorten my new jeans about 2"? I am not sure whether they might shrink in the 1st wash…would be nice to hear something from you guys Smiling

Does anyone have any experience of using the apc.fr site ? I'm trying to buy something but I keep getting told to 'please select your size', even though I have selected my size. Does this just mean the item is out of stock ?

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)

Bought on 06/10/10
Pictures taken on 06/15/12
Hemmed & tapered in 2011, leg opening 18cm.
Repaired crotch blow, need to fix some other holes, but its not necessary.
Worn for 1.5 year, 1 cold soak, 1 wash.

Threw them in the washinmachine again a week ago, the hole on the left knee is really huge now.
Will upload some pictures later this week.

I wore a pair almost every day for a year and have had no rips / tears or any wearing like on that pair likephenomenon, does that just come through when you wash them? & what does a cold soak consist of, any additives or just soak them in a bath tub of cold water for 10 minutes? job done.

Nothing in this thread about washing APCs, bar the unanswered questions about washing APCs.
