why dont you just wearing the normal detergen? find the detergen without bleaching... i thing it will help not so much loss of the indigo of your jeans.

or buy samurai thuder soap (after washing with it,you can feel the jeans just like you've strach it, its become stiff n rigid)...you can find it in rakuten  rclxms.gif me buy for my self only around RM70 if im not mistaken  smile.gif

You dont need to follow the booklet that comes with your APC to wash with woolite black...when the time comes o wash just wash with water with very little soap or detergent...the reason you break into raw denim is to fade it out..not to keep it dark right?

So from what i can gather, i have two options here:

a) to use samurai thunder soap or woolite to keep the indigo

b) to go with treflip's suggestion of letting it fade out

What would be the best result for these APCs standard petites?
Any suggestion?

Just received my apc petit standards from harvey today.
Able to button up all the way,took me awhile to be able to put my hands in the pockets but my wallet just can't even go in.
Only sized down 2 sizes and my balls seems pretty fine,should I have sized down one more for petit standards? Can't really tell the difference between my nudie slim jims with this.

I would say neither.
The general rule of buying APC would be to size down 3. But when sized down, thigh is gonna be tight. If you don't size down, waist is gonna be loose. This applies to both models.
N&F weird guy is a good alternative

I sized down 1 with the APC PS.
Is there anyway to prevent the waist from being loose?
To soak with some sort of liquid?
