Let’s talk about pants.

Every season, there’s usually an item or two that everyone on our team can agree on. Sometimes it’s a jacket, sometimes it’s a pair of sneakers, so on and so forth. Most recently, we’ve all been able to agree on the A.P.C. Petit New Standard in Marine Blue.

Another picture, straight from A.P.C.’s website of a very unflattering fit of the pants above. Maybe that’s just my opinion, I don’t know. Let me assure you, the pants aren’t THAT tight.

I am a big A.P.C. fan, I’d admit that I have some bias, but I really like these pants and think they’re a great add for any wardrobe. They can be dressed up or down, worn to work or to just hang out. Personally, they’re my go-to “work” pants. The fit is slightly different than the VERY popular Petit New Standard denim, which is probably due to the difference in material composition. (These are made of Japanese cotton gabardine). The difference in fit falls in my favor, so no complaints from me. Can’t forget to mention the color. Really ill shade of blue on these pants. Photos don’t do them justice.

Below, you can read a few quotes from myself and the team regarding complimentary wardrobe staples that we’ve worn with the A.P.C. Petit New Standard.

“I can’t say I wear these Vans every day, but at least every other day. Some people like Chucks. I like Sk8-Hi’s. They gave these a bit of an upgrade in recent years and now they’re almost perfect. They really tone down the feel of these pants.”  – Cody

“This hat is classic, can’t go wrong with a classic. Looks old, not flashy, just classic.” – Marty

There’s also an affinity for John Elliott + Co. basics amongst our team, but we’ll save that for another day. Shop A.P.C. and John Elliott + Co. in our online store.
