favorite tee and A.P.C. jeans (also here) // everyday gold necklace // favorite ballet flats // trio crossbody bag
[second post in a series. see my first post + review]
i've been wearing the A.P.C.s about 5 days a week since my last post. it has now been a month and a week.
comfort rating: we're at a 4*: softened-up with just a hint of stiffness remaining, comfy personalized fit overall.
*based on a scale of 1-10 (1 = why am i doing this to myself, 10 = ultimate broken-in velvety denim-nirvana pajamas)
fit: the waist, hip, and knee areas have loosened up a bit since the snug, stiff fit of the first week. however, as you can see from the photos, the jeans have still retained a slim-straight fit, and the waist has not stretched out nearly to the point where i'd need a belt. as of the 1 month mark, the jeans really do fit like they have molded to my frame. as discussed in my original review, i don't think these will stretch out a full 2 sizes as typically described for guys (makes sense, as we have different waist-to-hip ratios and the same pair of jeans will inevitably fit differently). i definitely feel like i bought the right size.
other thoughts: the non-stretch selvedge denim is a revelation after so many years of thin stretch denim. i really like how the the midweight cotton retains a certain 'structure' even as it softens up.
sooo...how long before i can start doing yoga in my A.P.C.s? stay tuned...
if you're wearing a pair of raw denim (A.P.C. or another brand), how's the breaking-in going?
