For another segment in Dutil's “Fit Me” series, we are talking about all things APC Petit New Standard Jean. We’ve been inspired before by APC with our playlist, La Douleur Exquise: An A.P.C Inspired Playlist, but this time we’re coming back and focusing on what makes this brand stand out: the fits.
As APC is all about quality fits and minimalistic designs that are meant to become a staple in your wardrobe, the APC Petit New Standard is certainly no exception. This fit is the wonderful mix of the New Standard and Petit Standard, sort of like the token middle child of A.P.C.
APC Petit New Standard – The Specs
The APC Petit New Standard is a medium rise, slim fit with more room in the thighs and a tapered lower leg. As mentioned, this is a great fit between the New Standard and the Petit Standard. Due to the additional room in the thigh, this is a great fit for those with an athletic build who enjoy that classic A.P.C slim fit but need a little more room in the thigh. This style comes in 32” and 34” inseam depending on the size.
Currently, at Dutil, the APC Petit New Standard is available in five washes ranging from straight-up black to light stonewashed indigo.
The Petit New Standard will absolutely become a staple jean in your casual wardrobe. Though, don’t be fooled by its comfortable, casual feel. This jean is absolutely multi-functional for a number of occasions.
Try the Petit New Standard in Stonewashed Indigo with a white t-shirt and light coloured sneakers for mid-day outings and errands. Then, switch out the Stonewashed Indigo for the Raw Indigo or Black Stretch for the evening. Throw on a leather or dark-colored jacket and you’ve successfully transitioned your casual A.P.C’s tonight.
