Fade of the Day – A.P.C. Petit New Standard (2 Years, 10 Months, 3 Washes)

A.P.C. Petit New Standard

For his first pair of raw denim jeans, Nate Robbins of Chatham, Illinois bought the A.P.C. Petit New Standard as so many do. It was 2013 when he entered the denim scene and since then, he hasn’t looked back. Wearing them everyday for over the past two-and-a-half years, these A.P.C’s have become a second skin and it shows.

He has had two crotch repairs with a third one around the corner. Both of his front pockets are unusable due to holes in each of them. There is serious stacking on the front along with a lap fade that has zero indigo left.

Find him over on Instagram.
