my stuff

cap:can't remember, glasses:my grandpa, shirt:hanes, jeans:apc new standards, shoes:clarks

On monday, barney's co-op had a 40% off sale on pretty much their entire inventory. The first thing I thought of: a.p.c. new standards. APC rarely goes on sale. Their denim never does and for a good reason. It's probably some of the best denim your money can buy. It comes highly recommended by bloggers and random hipsters alike. I was never really into the raw denim thing (only because of my pocketbook), but I jumped at the chance to get a pair of new standards for under 100 bucks. Now I don't think I'll ever go back. So if you see me this summer, I'll most likely be wearing these jeans. 

A few sites suggest sizing down a few inches to allow for stretch. I bought mine pretty much at my exact size-there would be no way I could bear stretching out a pair that were a few inches too small. Plus, I don't really rock my denim very tight. I haven't had a lot of experience with 'quality' denim but honestly, these are best fitting jeans I've owned.

That's the perfect shade of denim. You could probably wear them with a certain suit jacket...........sorry. I'll stop.

Nice, I've been looking at the APC white denim at Opening Ceremony. But I dig the glasses. Inherited items prove to the be best wardrobe makers.

APC never seems to stop being amazing. The glasses are good too.

Awesome jeans! I don't think I've even contemplated APC because of the price, but on sale- hell yes! And I love that you are wearing real vintage glasses from your grandfather. A perfect outfit post.

Those APCs are beautiful! Wish I could get my hands on a pair. Yeah, good thing you sized down, because they stretch like mad. And welcome to the raw denim club lol. Loving your glasses :)

Those look great. I wish I could try out raw denim, but I've found that without some elastic, a lot of jeans quickly get baggy on me, and I get the dreaded Slouchy Ass. Not a good look.
