When you repair your jeans, it means you’re willing to put in the work to keep your jeans alive forever. Well, forever may not be realistic, but 5 years and 4 months is pretty good–especially for A.P.C.’s. These New Standard’s were worn by Leslie Morgan of Atlanta, Georgia and have more repairs than Evel Kneivel. Heavy wear at work combined with skateboarding have come together to thrash these jeans to threads. There’s barely any indigo left, let alone fabric, and we’ll be very impressed to see if they make it to 6 years. With some solid repair work, though, they might.
