Anyone know how the old APC standards fit? Pre New Standard presumably.

Looking for a bit of advice on some new denim. Currently wearing a pair of KMW 1950s to death and would like something a bit slimmer. Not to skinny just straight/slim I think they call it with a touch slimmer at the hem. Currently looking at… APC NS, Norse Projects 2 jeans and Edwin ED-71s.

I've had APCs before (Rescues) and the only thing putting me off is they feel as if they have a touch of Lycra in them with the stretching that goes on. I don't wear my jeans dry from the kick off… usually give then a soak before hand and a wash every month or two as I wear them pretty hard and don't like to smell like a tramp. Not really into the whole Superfuture thing. Would appreciate any feedback.

Useless tailor said he couldn't (not wouldn't) taper my nashvilles from the inseam. My skills with a sewing machine are rudimentary at best and even I can produce a flat felled seam. That being said, repairing the 3-way crotch blowout is only costing £6. Not too worried about the quality as anything is better than their current state.

Why don't we get rid of the apc stockists at the top of this page -it just wastes space, they're easily searchable and it doesn't stop people asking where is cheapest at any given point

For gawk's fit I'd say downsize 1 or 2.
