I was a little puzzled why the APC Petit Standard didn't have its own thread, so I'm going to start one now. I just ordered myself a pair of these after trying to get a hold of them for several months, and now they're on their way. I actually had quite a difficult time getting a hold on these online, not that there's any shortage of vendors- it just seems like everyone's always sold out of them, and they seem to sell out incredibly quickly. therefore, i figure there must be enough interest out there to warrant giving these jeans their own thread. i'll give updates when mine arrive, but i'd be curious to hear others' opinions on these, because information on them seems to be quite thin on the ground, except for the ubiquitious 'slimmer new standard'. i ordered mine in 28, which is the same size as my new standard, which is to say sized down in the customary fashion for a.p.c.- true waist 31.
