———————————————————————————-

Acne - fit true to size

APC New Standards -size down 2 or even 3 from true waist size

APC New Cures - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

April 77 - size down 1 or 2 from true waist size

Dior raw 19s and 21s - have vanity sizing and are labelled as two sizes smaller than actual size

Edwin Nashvilles - size down 1" - quite a different fit to most jeans out there though (massive rise, loose at thigh and comparitively tapered at the leg).

Julian Red - fit small, so maybe true to size on raw and possibly size up on non raws

Nudies - size down 1 or 2

Raf by Raf - true

Ring - true

What's the best way to stop crotch rippage on APCs? I'm nearly on to my third repair in under two years of wear. Didn't bother soaking/rinsing them when I bought them.

Go for a different fit, lower rise.

Or stop rubbing thighs together when walking (no fatty)

Less sag, soak them, get better jeans.

Never rock a real sag (just occasional slippage), they've now been soaked at least a couple of times, and otherwise the fit of Petit Standards is perfect.

Dunno man? All that rubbish about no more vanity sizing is absolute bullshit, I sized down with these and there exactly the same as APC's of 7 years ago!

Them fadez dont seem right for 3 months of wear tho!

I have two pair of ps, same size, one pair is a year old another is 3 months, there is a massive difference between them, the old pair has a 16cm hem the old ones a 22.5cm hem, waist in the new ones is definitely tighter. Same wear same washing.

are people forgetting that apc's are cheap jeans? i wouldnt be surprised if they were dying them in a way that made them fade faster nowadays, thats what people buy them for. i've got a pair i do all my diy stuff in the summer in and they've needed repairing several times but cant be much older than 18 months old with very infrequent wear.
