Prompt response:

You can bring them your jeans, as long as they are raw indigo denim and have not been washed more than once or twice (so the color hasn’t faded too much).

If your jeans match the requirements, the salesperson will accept them and you will get a 50% discount on a new pair of raw indigo jeans (you’ll get a 50% discount on a new pair for each pair that is accepted for the program).

In any case, you can bring your jeans to the store and they will give you all the needed information.

I hope my answer is clear enough.

Think mine will be too 'washed'..

thats a good idea by APC I reckon - keeps their products (even second hand) at a premium.

Only the raw blue denim though it would seem? Was hoping to get a pair of the new black petit standards, saw them in the Redchurch St store and looked excellent.

Only 1 or 2 washes yet the video would suggest otherwise…

Denim doc may be slow answering queries as his mrs was due any time when I spoke to him last week.

I was charged around £19+postage for hemming (chainstitched) and a slight taper

look at my post above. paris store asks for completely battered ones. and only indigo raws.
the policy seems to be different for the london store tho.

son of stagg have done a fine job on the chainstiching 2 pr of diors. took them half an hour. dropped in at 11.30 and picked up at lunchtime. £20 a pair. did not recommend restiching hems on the washed ones - advised me to pour some boiling water on the new stiches to shrink them, so they 'rope'.

although,going by my ever shrinking waist, they'll probably have to go in the bin soon anyway Cry

now to try and rinse apc for a new pair of rescues…
