Newly Arrived, APC New Standards (27)

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm late for work, but wanted to post these pictures early!

...I'm a bit concerned, since I've often heard people discuss the need to wet stretch upon first trying APC's on...I was able to button them to the top, albeit, a snug fit.

I've soaked these in the tub for an hour, hopefully that will tighten them up...eep

you're a 26w in diesel and bought a 27 in apc? :X
post #3 of 28
should have gotten a 25. at least a 26.
diesel size - 1 = apc size.

I know, I'm thinking 26 would have been a better choice...

I assumed that since I'm a 30 in Levis, that my true waist size was 30...hmmmm...here's to hoping

for apc, i personally find that you need to be UNABLE to button the top initially. but they stretch madddddddddddddddddd big so its all good and shit.

It pains me to sit with these on, and my penis will never forgive me...does that count?

i think you failed.
and soaking APCs wont do shit.
if anything, you wont be able to return it now
plus you probably gotten rid of the starch/indigo and shit on the jeans. meaning shitty fades/creases. and just slow progression in general.
damn son.

i see no reason for you to get pissed at people trying to help you. in a month they will look like total ass and you will definitely regret buying a 27
post #15 of 28
they will stretch at least 2 full sizes within a week or so of daily wear. sucks for you, but you should have heeded our advice on this one.

not really, getting rid of the starch will just cause it to fade slower & more naturally, but not necessarily mean shitty fades or creases. It won't lose much indigo either.
I see nothing too bad about doing an initial soak on APCs, though it isn't really necessary.
post #17 of 28
also, why you soaked sanforized denim is beyond me.
post #18 of 28
It would've been better if you had tried them on before you made the purchase online.

+1 A Clockwork Orange on the sizing

I had to wet stretch my New Cures 2 times before being able to wear those comfortably.

I wet stretch the pockets too to be able to put my phone (w880, 9mm of thickness, well that was still too big for the APC ... ) and my keys in those. I did that with cold water and no agitation, so I did not lose too much indigo though.

Guess what, even after those 2 wet stretching sessions, they have been stretching even more with wear, for 3 weeks.

They have have visible fade wear only after 3 weeks, thats quite fast.

On complain : The fly has got only 2 buttons on small size, and now the fly is too much stretched out, it looks funny, but its ok.

Well, I managed to find a trade via SuperFuture in size 25, so we'll see how those turn out.

Otherwise, I should definitely take some advice

I did, check the mall in SuperFuture, they are aware that this pair has been soaked.
post #24 of 28
yeah i saw it myself, because i wanted to buy them.

cash money!
post #25 of 28
so just so I won't make the same mistake, I'm hoping to pick up a pair when contextclothing has a pair available in my size. I wear between 31 and 32 in Diesel, 31 in levi's matchsticks, 30 in TR...

should I be heading for 30 in NS?
