Thanks for the report. FYI, The Tight Jeans are what's called The Cure at the store - same jeans, different name, don't know why. If it helps, the APC website for the US just released a worn-finish that I didn't see at the store, which is slim AND not so raw and rigid. Might be what you're looking for. I will check them out this weekend.

You just answered a couple questions I had posted to the mens denim thread. You're right about the fit of the slim style (cure): mine fit me just like my dior homme 21 cm jeans did through the hip; they're just a little narrower through the leg with 19.5cm opening. They have the same nice low slung fit. I take a 32 in this season's dior, 31 in previous seasons, I take a size 33 in the apc cure which fit just like this seasons dior 32. Subsequently I've sold both pair of my dior jeans because just as happy with the apc.

There must have been an inseam of about 40" with that one, or so it seemed.

That's great to hear! Glad I was able to steer you in the right direction. And since I can never get my size in Dior since it always runs out, I now know I can just stick to my much more affordable APCs! Thanks!

Just a question about the 'tight' APC jeans. By the look of the picture on the APC site, it looks like the denim is raw. Is this how it is, or is it just the picture?

It's raw. They have finished ones, but the ones I saw at the store and tried (and own) are raw.

Does anyone know what size I should get for the New Standards? I picked up my real size today but I asked the girl working if she knew what size I should get but she was clueless so I just picked them up anyway. But I'm a little concerned as these fit pretty well that they might be too big in the long run, should I exchange for a smaller size?

mouko, did you find them in sf? i could never find a pair i liked in sf. azalea on hayes had some i think but they weren't the fit i wanted.

my boyfriend wears women's hipsters and loves them. he has worn the same raw denim pair for over a year and has only washed them like, 3 times..they are absolutely beautiful now. they fit him perfectly and have amazing wear-patterns...natural ones, from his body, and not those horrible kinds that you buy some new jeans with. i don't own a pair currently but the ones i have tried on have made me feel like a goddess, hee!

Does anyone have pictures of APC or similar raw denims that had about 6 months wear before washing? Baklan, you seemed to know about it, can you get me a picture of your APCs, or just tell me what the look is like after wear?
The pictures of the nudie jeans are adjusted contraste-wise on the computer. Some pictures of worn A.P.C. Jeans are on here: http://www.nurs.or.jp/~ourlem/text/denim_26.html ; They were worn for 7 years though.

I am thinking about ordering some APC jeans. They are the "tight" ones opposed to the standard. I wear a 32 and sometimes 31 in u.s. sizes, what would you suggest for A.P.C.

There is a lot of info about APC and sizing here: http://superfuture.com/city/supertal...D=1768&start=1

You probably want a 30 or 31 inch.

Hey thanks so much. I am going to go with a 31 I think, if that doesn't work out I'll just return it!
