Can anybody give me a reason why they are sooooo popular or good, besides the fact that Kanye and Cudi wear em'.. :dno:
I've noticed that everyone talks about them alot here and back at kanyelive..
I know that they are made in Italy or something and that makes em more exclusive but I just want to know some more good reasons.

they're reasonably priced for fairly good quality selvedge raw denim.. entry to mid level range denim ~$130-150 depending where u by

fades nicely with nice whiskering / honeycombing.

petit standards fit really well IMO.

have you tried a pair on?

Never tried that type of jean. Could you possibly compare and/or contrast them with a pair of levi's .. :dno:

I don't know where you're getting your apc's from unless brick and mortars have sales but I've never seen a pair lower then 155 online. I know I read somewhere that apc doesn't want retailers to sell for less then what their price is on their site. Like I said I don't know if brick and mortars have different policies.

No, you should be sizing 2-3 sizes for New Standards, 2 sizes for New Cures and Petit Standards. Go to a store and try them on because I'm possibly wrong. As you try them on, the top button should be hard as fuck to button. The reason behind this is because initially the jeans are standard sizing. But two-three weeks into wear, you're going to realize that the jeans stretch... A LOT!

You're partially correct but that info can fuck up someones sizing on their apc's.

They ARE NOT standard sizing they are vanity meaning a size 31 measures to be a 33.  They do stretch a lot but that is not the only reason why people size down. People size down because of the vanity. How should you size for apc's? Measure your waist and go from there. Also what kind of fit do you want? A sized down pair of NS can look better then a pair of cures. It just depends.

they're prolly the best raw denim you can get for that price, and they're not even that good of raws. They're dope though. I got a pair.
