Fade of the Day – A.P.C. Petit New Standard (7 Years, 2 Months, 3 Soaks)
Admittedly, we see a lot of A.P.C.‘s in our inbox. While that probably comes as no surprise, what we don’t often see are pairs as crazy and repaired as this pair of Petit New Standards worn for a whopping seven years and two months by Simon See from London.
This is as true of a testament to the brand as any, as even after countless repairs at the local dry cleaner and the fine folks at Darn & Dusted, they are STILL kicking today. If the length of wear doesn’t impress you, they have also only seen water three times for soaks with no washes to speak of.
The results speak for themselves–a totally thrashed and personalized pair of jeans with fades that look like they were pulled out of the turn of the century coal mines. Bravo, Simon, you better frame these bad boys someday.
