RAW JEANS: DIOR, ACNE OR APC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Which one would you suggest getting considering the quality, ability to lose dye and the ease of breaking in.

 

Also l'll greatly appreciate it if you could provide information on ACNE cuts, can't seem to find them.

EDIT: i searched the website manually and came out with 3 cuts i'll consider

 

ACNE:

MIC A: japanese raw denim, zip fly, low waist, straight leg, worn long (MEGA VALUE FOR MONEY)

MAX RAW: slim thigh and waist, straight narrow leg, deep indigo colour   http://shop.acnestudios.com/shop/men/jeans/max-raw-12367.html#

 

MAX CASH: slim thigh and waist, straight narrow leg, STRETCHY(with 2%elastane), black

Dior: 19cm raw MIJ indigo.

 

 

 

APC: New cures or Petit standard.

I'm not an expert on Acne Jeans, btw those Max Cash doesn't look like raws to me...

 

anyway I think it depends on the result you want to achieve as well

fades APC's would eventually end like this

MIJ could look like this (credits to vonwitzleben)

personally , I like MIJ by far better

 

 

you have to take in account that fading a pair of MIJ is a lot harder, tho

If its your first pair I would go with a cheaper option such as apc to get a feel for it.  I have bought two pairs of nudies now and learned alot about raw denim from the two.  I should have sized down more with both and am considering selling them and going with a pair of apc myself.

woah, it seems apc doesn't fade that nicely huh?

 

for the cheapest option, it would be ACNE's MIC A.

but i'm not sure what's MIC cut is like since it doesn't provide measurements.

i googled ACNE MIC A and a few images of MIC cuts came up, it looks pretty baggy. i'm looking for something a little tighter than dior's 19cm.

 

MAX CASH is slimmer than MIC but it's really expensive. At 269USD, i'd rather get dior raw.

Though MAXCASH doesn't state raw, but the description says it's overcoated with black dye and it's made to fade. I suppose that makes it somewhat raw denim?

Any experts out there, please help me rank the slimness of these cuts

 

APC new cures

APC petit standard

Dior 19cm

Dior 17.5cm

ACNE MIC  (can leave it out if you're not sure of this.)

ACNE MAX (can leave it out if you're not sure of this.)

 

i'm pretty sure MAX is slimmer than MIC though.

 

Thanks!
