Jean Touitou graduated from the Sorbonne in Paris with a history degree and no intention of becoming a fashion designer. By accident, Touitou landed his first job with Kenzo, followed by gigs at Agnès B & Irie before deciding to start his own in 1987 with the launch of A.P.C. - Atelier de Production et de Création. From shoes to outerwear, A.P.C. carries the basics that provide for a clean & crafted outfit - through & though.
gravitypope Gift Guide No. 01 'The Cat Lady'
We all have that one friend who's constantly showing you photo's of
their cat, or posting it on every social network imaginable. We love them.
We (have no choice but to) love their cat. So why not get that friend a
gift they'll be sure to love? A gift that will remind them of their furry little
friend no matter where life takes them. Might we suggest a dash of
leopard & pony hair for The Cat Lady in your life? From clothes to
accessories, we've got you covered on one of the biggest trends
for the season - and for the biggest lover of it's inspiration!

The Sartorialist, god bless him, has posted a little quib about his perfect fitting jeans: the A.P.C. New Cure. I have to say that most of us at GPTG have to agree.
Read what he has to say here.
If you haven't yet given A.P.C. a try, come on in and take a look at what's considered a staple for many denim enthusiasts out there.
Also get a preview of the Spring '09 collection, which will be expanding in store from the standard cuts of denim to the complete fashion pieces for both men and women, a first for Gravity Pope Tailored Goods--and much of Western Canada for that matter!
For those of you who have just started breaking in your new pair of A.P.C. denim from gravitypope Tailored Goods, the folks at A Continuous Lean have recently posted a How To on washing denim. If the ultimate goal of wearing in your jeans perfectly seems so far away, do not lose hope! The end results are worth it!
Incredibly stiff and unprocessed, the A.P.C. denim is the most raw of all the unwashed indigo jeans we have in store. Be sure to buy them as tight in the waist as you can--due to their raw state, you'll find that these jeans will stretch out and not shrink back in size after wearing them in. Part of the joy of these jeans is the process of breaking them in: don't expect comfort for the first week or so. But once you've made the denim truly your own, you'll love your pair for being especially unique to your own body.
The three main cuts are organized by the width of the leg. The Rescue is the widest jean for those looking for a more relaxed look. The New Standard is a straight leg jean (the jean APC is most known for) and the New Cure is the tightest fit that comes in a mens (New Cure Homme) and womens (New Cure Femme) fit.
Check out this denim washing guide for tips on how to wear in your denim!
