APC Jeans Fit Guide
How Do APC Jeans Fit?
When it comes to getting into the world of raw selvedge denim, one of the go-to brands for those looking to test the waters is APC Jeans With their range of fits, minimal design and reasonable pricing, they appeal to a broader audience than some of the more obscure, esoteric or high-end brands, yet will still age just as well with wear and tear, moulding themselves to the wearer’s body over time to develop their own unique fade patterns.
For all their simplicity, though, the naming scheme for the various fits the brand offers can be a little confusing. To help ease the decision-making progress, we have put together a short guide on how APC jeans fit, so you can be sure you get the perfect fit for you.
A.P.C. Petit Standard
The slimmest jean in APC Jeans current lineup, the Petit Standard has a slim leg with a sharp taper toward the ankle, as well as a lower rise than its classic counterparts. The denim construction is also sometimes a slightly lighter weight at 12.75 oz., but still has the iconic red selvedge line that denotes its quality.
A.P.C. Petit New Standard
The newest addition to APC Jeans lineup, the Petit New Standard lies partway between fits, coupling the Petit Standard’s slimmer leg with the roomier top block of the New Standard, perfect for the gentleman with a more athletic physique, as well as inheriting the New Standard’s heavyweight selvedge denim.
As part of the brand’s 30th anniversary ‘Hiver 87’ collection, APC Jeans has reintroduced their first jean cut, the Standard. In keeping with its late-Eighties origins, the Standard has a higher rise and a looser, straight leg than any of their contemporary fits. The jeans also feature darker caramel-coloured stitching and a commemorative interior label to set apart their limited nature.
