A.P.C. Petit New Standard Before Need Supply

While it’s true that hiking mountains or doing rigorous manual labor all day will speed up any jeans’ fading process, it’s equally as enjoyable when it happens slowly and steadily. Heddels reader Watchara Srirojanakul from Bangkok, Thailand wore these A.P.C. Petit Standard‘s for the last 11 months of mostly office work and the usual hangout sesh’s and is starting to earn some solid fades. With only one soak and one wash so far, there hasn’t been a whole lot of need for much else, though he does note the whiskers are starting to wear pretty thin.
