So I've been hearing lately that A.P.C.'s quality is shit for their price? How does it compare to other designers with a similar/lower price range and which are better?
I own a sweater that is pretty nice IMO... people criticize their wide arrange denim (which most are selvedge @above poster) but I've had a great experience with my first and only pair so far. (petite standards).
that being said, I've spent $300 on Japanese jeans, momotaros... and APC jeans def don't compare.
I think their prices in their jeans are justifiably cheap/reasonable.
looks like everyone's riding the "sex sells" campaign
I love APC. I've got a sweater, jacket, shirt, and an overshirt from them and they're all well cut and designed. All pretty basic though.
I'm lucky enough to be living here in Tokyo near the surplus store, so I can go and have a look at a bunch of stuff at about 50% off, sometimes more
this sooo much!
I just look around the fabric, maybe color of stitching or shape of back pockets lead to my decision, but never fit.
Unless it's super baggy, I'll buy anything and have it tailored specific to my desired fit, shit I even go directly to my tailors house now.
defeats the purpose?
That's like saying paying a lot for a suit only to have to get it tailored made it a dumb purchase.
It isn't even that expensive.
Talking 30 bucks at most for a hem and taper.
Sure, I could find a brand that makes a cut that fits me great, but then I'm still limited to only the 6-12 options they have every season, of which only 3-4 are good.
Tailoring is not expensive, and should be something everyone on /fa/ has done aside from t shirts.
