I have to retire my selvedge APC Rescues.. bunch of holes in the crotch area, beyond repair. I wore them on/off for about 10 months, washed them a couple times and got a pretty sweet fade on the front, and nice honeycombs.

I'm going to get a new pair for the spring and start the whole process over again!

I kind-of want to get this dress from Net-a-porter but I am wondering how the sizing runs. Does anyone know if they run small in a large? Also, how is the quality of their clothes? I have never purchased anything from A.P.C. and now I can afford to buy it so I am really wondering how good their quality is.

I have that dress, and I love it. A.P.C. quality is known for being good, but the button on the sleeve did pop off the first time I wore it. Still, it's pretty cute.

As for sizing, I'd say it's pretty true to size, as long as you take in the fact that A.P.C. doesn't favor the generous, boxy sizing that the big-box stores usually do.

Ah,coolness I am sure it's worth it for the price

Thanks you so much, that is what I really wanted to know because sizing is important to me before I buy something, especially for $210:p

I got an email about the 30% off pre-sale today, does anyone know if further discounts are about to happen?

If you asking if they'll discount already discounted items then I don't think so because the ones that were on sale previously still have the same 30% off price. i also just found out that they're restocking some of the sold out items.
