Im looking at a new pair of jeans and i can't decide between Acne Ace cash or the APC petit new standard in black.
Whats the comparison in terms of quality and fit?
lmao you need reading comprehension skillz mate.
I specifically said that there is nothing bad with either of them, but APC's denim source is a little bit better than acne.
If you need me to spell it out that DOESN'T mean acne's denim is bad.
sheeeesh nigga it's elementary
on an unrelated note, i got a pair of cheap mondays for 10 bucks. So happy.
I own acne ace raws and I love them. Got a hole in my crotch cus i stretch it a lot when i sit and then tore the leg up at the bottom cus I was reckless, but they repaired the crotch for free and another 10 bucks for the leg when I left them at the store.
Acne jeans are garbage. I returned my Acr Cash because I couldn't bear paying that much for crappy clothing. Bought some N&F super skinnies that are much better quality and value. If you need skinnies I recommend them
anons opinion on babbys first black jeans
used to use Japanese denim but they changed to eastern European manufacturing and denim sourcing so the quality isn't as good as it used to be , fucking jews. the cuts are ok but prepare to size down a ton of if you're a 29 inch waist or lower
quality is very very mediocre and just as over priced as a.p.c but the cuts are a lot better. also made and sourced in eastern europe
japanese denim made in canada. much better construction and quality but the cuts are fucking awful. also over priced but they're constantly on sale
i own denim from all 3 brands
lmao wtf is even the point?
most "good" jeans start at around 200 and you're probably going to be wearing them almost everyday so you might as well shell out the extra cash for some sick jeans
Can you say anything about Nudie?
I've been thinking of copping selvage grim tims from them, not raws though.
I've been comparing unbranded, acne apc and nudies and out of all, I like the way Nudies fit the best.
Okay so I want the tightest possible black jeans that will not fade.
>Shit bf% for /fa/ because don't exercise
The tightest jeans I've worn are 511s because I can't find 510s anywhere to try on. They're comfortable so I think I could go tighter, but I am satisfied with them except for their weak taper.
APC petit standards seem to be around the right size for me, but I've been told I should size down and that they'll fade grey because they have a white weft. The denim also seems more "natural?" than acne's if that makes sense from pictures (pic related). Maybe it's more cotton?
Acne ace cash seems to be my fit and I've been told they're tts, but I'm not sure if I'd be able to fit thin cash. And should I buy "stay" if I don't want them to fade?
So which should I buy? And are either worthy the retail price of ~$200? Because I've been told to only cop acne on sale.
I'm an inch shorter at 5'10" and 155 lbs. I do exercise, so a lot of it is denser muscle tissue, but I also seem to have a very fortunate distribution of where my fat goes.
Same could go for >>8632879, not sure. I will say that most jeans branded as "skinny" are way too tight and outline my dick, but slim fit jeans are perfect as long as I don't do squats.
acne is overpriced shit. since kids here are so anal about the definition of quality, I'll give you the specifics: crotch will blow out and color will look like shit after a few months. you could as well buy nudie jeans.
just buy rick owens detroits. they regularly go on sale for the same prices as acne/apc jeans and they look and feel fifty times better
if you're really set on buying the acne, though, cop it secondhand or something. there's a shitton of bnwt acne/apc jeans out there for less than half of the retail price
i'd also recommend rag and bone jeans as being better quality for less money
we are not talking about ann d or ma+ items you damn fag. these will fall apart in months despite the ridiculous prices but at least, according to a specific definition of "quality", they are not so bad (ie: you will lose buttons and seams will rip after 2 wears but they are made with certain materials and certain stitchings... lots of details and thought went into the design... I bought them as a piece of craftsmanship, not for actual use etc).
here we are talking about goddamn black jeans from mainstream brands, so yeah quality means color not fading and crotches not blowing, things that will happen in acne and apc since they are nigger-tier brands.
you're a little bit overstating this shit
my acnes didnt fade and the crotch didnt blow out, I dont even know how the retards manage to get crotch area torn, do they fucking bike in skinny jeans or something? Never had that happen to me.
Ye, acnes wont serve you 10 years and you wont give them to your grandson, alas. But they are okay. Certainly not worth RRP yada-yada, but I wanted them, so I copped them at full rrp. Or maybe not, tres-bien makes it hard to cop sth at full rrp.
I've been wearing Acne Ace Cash every day for the past 2 years and they are still very black (very slightly faded around the inner thighs near the crotch and behind the knees obviously be that's to be expected) and the crotch is no where close to blowing out. I even wore them working at the warehouse for 6 months so thats bullshit :^)
The whole "m-muh quality" and "lol crotch blowout" is just people mindlessly repeating what they read in /fa/ threads. I guarantee none of the people talking about the quality and crotch blowouts of acne jeans have never worn a pair.
Not Acne or APC, but are Nudies any good? I'm on the fence about buying a pair, and its either them or Acne.
Is there any point in getting selvedge denim if they aren't raws?
Sorry if the question is dumb I'm not that into raw denim or selvedge denim really and I've been considering getting pair of selvedges
Well i think what's getting worse with APC is precisely that the price keeps going up, and the items stay the same...I'd agree that you wouldn't feel robbed for paying them brand new, but you'd get a much better bang for your buck simply by copping them second hand (there's a TON of PS second hand, even brand new, on any forum/site about clothes anyway).
I think historically, what really set APC apart was how good the New Standard was back then, and I read it inspired Slimane for the Dior jeans etc. But that was back when the price was at less than a 100€ or so I think.
I don't think the denim is any different than it used to be, for APC. But they do manufacture in Macau now, instead of I don't remember where before. The quality of assembly of the denim is fine, though not as good as you might expect a pair in that price range to be. But then again, not many brands even sell anything like they do at that price range, so it isn't easy finding alternatives.
Acne = cool
APC = safe
Both are more or less the same in terms of quality of construction. APC uses heavier denim, Acne has 2% elastane. I bought a pair of APC PS and Acne Ace Waxed in November. No complaints about either one, except that I sometimes feel that the APC's are a bit too loose around the ankles and too tight around the upper thighs (they don't stretch anymore). Raw just isn't my thing.
idk about the quality, but what really bugs me about the ace cash are the random white streaks that appear and disappear all over and seemingly at random (often when i'm just sitting down perfectly still). anyone know what's up with that?
if you don't mind the branding, go for it. as far as quality goes, i've had two pairs that lasted me the whole year with no trouble. but thats just me, there are some people that have experienced crotch blowouts and shit, but i have no idea how the hell that happens to people.
APC denim is more grey than black because of the white threads, but the stitching is very very good and the denim is very durable, I've had no blowouts or anything
I've never handled Acne though, so I can't speak for it. But if you want a really nice fitting black jean go with APC, size down 1 or so
Never handled APC but I do own a pair of Acne jeans.
I bought them back in September and wore them just about everyday for 8 months. The crotch started fading after 5 or so months. After the 8th month, i started getting holes on the inner thighs and the crotch is almost done tearing. The crotch hole is about 1.5inches long, but it's been like that for 2 months. The material is damn durable IMO. They have yet to fade except for my inner thighs, back pockets, crotch/ass. Everywhere else is pretty damn good. If you have the dosh I would say buy them, but last I checked they manufacture their jeans somewhere else, so I'm unsure how the quality has changed since then.
Oh and the ones I bought were made in Albania
Yes, you need to size down. My New Standards stretched like crazy. I sized down two and they eventually got really comfortable. Could barely close the third button at first. They accidentally ended up in the dryer though and now I have to stretch these fuckers out again.
at the end of the day, selvedge and non-selvedge are both jeans with the same flaws. selvedge used to be a sign of quality of construction, but now days even converse has a selvedge model so it doesn't mean what it used to
not very good advice anon
ACNE uses sulphur in their black dyes. I know these I have smelled similar to black rogue territory which have strong sulphuric scent when I tried them on. I didnt even smell anything resembling sulphur when I tried on Nudies. Plus its no secret Nudies fall apart quickly. Just my experience holding these brands' black denim and wearing them. ACNE just seem to have heavier black raws than Nudies. This fabric weight is due to the use of sulphur and will ultimately keep your denim from fading. Nothing beats black staton from Rogue Territory though. They even warn you on their label of the sulphuric smell their black raws have since the dye they use has sulphur.
Ok guys, OP here, i've decided to pull the trigger on the Acne Ace Cash. Im 6'3 with a 32 waist in 90% of the jeans i have worn, 31 rarely. What size waist should i get? How much will it stretch?
the point of the sulphur is to keep the denim dark and have the pigment penetrate and harden the denim. If you soak the jeans you Sanfornized them and they will not hold color as well as they would raw unsanfornized.
ty you stupid shit asians
decades, $10 ACNE and APC in the women's section for $9.99 each.
walked by and notcied the brands, sold as worn twice jeas on sufu
quality is so shit on them, and fuccbois snatch that shit up because poor
they had a bunch of ripped and nasty looking rick owens too
>Cop 2 pairs of Acne Ace Cashes
>Bought a 30/30 feels more like a 30/34
>Doesn't stack well
>Not slim enough for my tastes
>Eventually take them to tailor to get resized
>Tell her I want them tapered
>Ends up making them skin tight on my calves
>Still bulking getting swole
>Jeans don't fit anymore, should have just left them alone and bulked into them
>Realize I should stop working legs if I want to be effay
My Cash have gotten this weird fade on the ass. Two stripes goes from the crotch area diagonal along the butt. Like a pantie-fade. It does not look as bad as it sounds but it is a bit weird. I haven't even bicycled with them.
Anyone else experience this?
where are you guys finding all this second hand and sale shit? Some of you guys make it sound like shit can be bought in sale or something. Like for example achilles white low always on sale good condition at $200 all the time but how can you find the perfect size and fit?
trying to browse ebay and other places for that single one piece you need is a waste of time
but if there's a bunch of different shit you've seen in past seasons that you didn't cop it's definitely worth your while. you can find some nice stuff
>I NEED THIS SPECIFIC MEME SHOE RIGHT NOW IT WILL MAKE ME COMPLETE AS A PERSON AND ALL WORLDLY PLEASURES WILL BE MINE
grow up anon
Some boutique stores in large metropolitan cities put expensive designer pieces on sale when the new collection is coming in and they have to get rid of them.
I was at Dover Street Market in London at the right time and almost all the rick stuff that had was 40% off.
Came back 3 days later and it was already gone :(
do u live in the middle of nowhere?
i keep seeing u post stuff like
>OMG I WAS IN ~~LONDON~~ AND WENT TO A BOUTIQUE ON OMG GUYS THEY HAD RICK OWENS IN THERE!!
its rly weird
do u own any designer pieces?
Posting since this is sorta related. How do I wash Acne jeans so that the black dye won't fade? Woolite dark and line dry or what? Thanks!
Houston's a pretty big city surely they have fashion boutiques right? I live in a city with a population of only 350,000 so there are none here, but >2,000,000 people live in Houston.
how small is a pair of w28/l32 jeans? they are a pair of roc cash from acne
ordered the only size in stock but they're probably too small. i live in a cave atm and cant/am too lazy to measure my waist. im 125 lbs if that matters
You won't get kudos from a bunch of anonymous autists on an anime messageboard if you buy them . People irl with good taste will think they look great. The stitching on the pockets may put people off, but some styles have tone-on-tone stitching making it even more subtle.
