Fade Friday – A.P.C. Petit Standard (2 Years, 2 Washes)

As our Fades & Progressions forum thread continues to pick up steam, we’re elated to feature yet another user-submitted Fade Friday. User ClassicIsCrucial has worn his A.P.C. Petit Standard‘s for a little over two years and given them just two bathtub washes with Woolite Dark soap detergent.

Given how past A.P.C. Fade Fridays rarely disappoint, it’s not surprising how well ClassicIsCrucial‘s have faded. He’s worn them for over 730 days straight (!) and endured numerous rips, tears, and crotch blowouts throughout. Thankfully, he’s also been careful to mend them along the way.

Don’t forget to check out the full thread for complete details, as well as ClassicIsCrucial‘s personal blog.

    Oh cool. another pair of apc fades.

    Nice. It’s good to see a well worn pair of jeans that have performed for a couple years displaying some very nice fading, rather than a pair worn for 6 months and subjected to extreme abuse in the name of fades.

    thanx for this review nick. i would like to buy my first pair but i’m wondering if “petit standard” looses a bit. should i buy it more skinny than i usually wear!?

      with the petit standard, if you buy a size under what your normal waist size is then they should fit perfectly.
