As the name suggests, New Standards are A.P.C.‘s classic-cut five pocket jeans. The rise is not too high and not too low and the leg is not too narrow and not too straight (the bottom of the leg is slightly fitted). The cut works just as well if you want to size up for baggy or size down for skinny.
New Standard sizes are in some sort of Euro-inches which aren’t like normal inches. The waist will also stretch out by at least an inch with wear (they’ll return to their original size after they’re washed but will stretch out again). If you’re normally between sizes we’d definitely recommend getting the smaller size.
A.P.C. denim also comes with long legs. We’d wait until they’ve had a couple of washes before decided whether-or-not to have them taken up as they can lose up to two inches.
A lot of faff but they’re worth it.
