In a few weeks—that’s May 4th, for the curious—the fine folks at A.P.C. are trotting out a new denim style called the Petit Standard, and we thought we’d take a closer look. It’s got a lot of what you’ve come to expect from the brand: five pockets, slim hips, narrow legs that pull in at the bottom to keep things looking straight—all in the dark raw denim they’ve made their name on.
The Petit Standard lowers the waist a little, so you can tuck in without feeling too buttoned-up. Since it’s raw, you should expect the usual training period, but that wouldn’t faze a die-hard denimhead like you.
If you work at it, you should have them broken in by next summer.
