denim update

I’ve fully retired my RRDS coz they are way too baggy for my liking, I still rock the APC NS, but maybe because I skate in them a lot, they are pretty damn baggy as well, at least around the ass… 😉 I am working on a pair of Dior Homme 19cm raw right now and I love the fit. I’m on my 2nd week with them and they’ve stretched out to a perfect fit. The stretching process was short and was nowhere as painful as the APC NS!!

I snapped some pics to document the progress on my Nudies RRDS and APC NS, the RRDS got about 3 months of actual wear, the APC has about 4 months. I haven’t wash or soak either of them. I actually bought them pretty much the same time but I had to exchange my RRDS twice to get the right size, and the 2 times took over 3 weeks, the third time I found out Kitchener actually could ship global priority (whatever the Swiss equivalent is called) and got the 2nd replacement within a few days. That’s why the APC’s got more an extra month of wear and it really shows on the denim.

Anyway, here are some pics, enjoy…

    Those new standard’s look great! I can’t squint well enough to see though, but what size did you buy? What’d they measure and what’d they stretch to? Thanks!

    Thanks! They were 28, didn’t measure them when they were new, I think it must’ve been 28 or less coz it took me 4 days to do all the buttons!! they’ve stretched out to around 31.

    Cool, thanks! I’ve been thinking about APC for a little while, but have heard pretty weird reports about how they fit according to how they’re tagged. This sure helps!
