Please no. really. NOT a good look and those will never stretch to a good place. Go up 1-2 sizes. Ever wondered why people seem to split seams / crotches and then whinge here that APC's a poor quality? - well it's not the quality of the jeans that is the issue, it's the unrealistic sizing expectations some folks have of APC's. They give out, the waistband more than most, but the not being able to do all the buttons up thing is for females, who a) can look good in very...

Got these in black, same as the blue in your link (SS15). They are a selvedge gabardine, left hand twill - lighter weight than the standard denim. Tried on my usual size for APC jeans + trousers (29) and almost laughed myself out of the shop they were so tight on the leg. I then tried a 30 and they fit much better on thighs and top block. Unless you want them painted on, go up one size from your usual PNS size unless you like your fabric painted onto your legs. I washed...
also, don't discount the New Standard. If you decide that heavy taper isn't for you, the NS is def still a flattering slim-ish tapered jean. For which ever model you chose, you're measured waist -3 will be your best bet. Snug but just buttonable when first tried is good - they'll ease and stretch in the right places over 10-30 wears to a nice comfortable place.
good luck - go with your gut feeling. Every brand is different, and where we all have our lumps and bumps contributes to how we like to wear our jeans. APC's have never been accused of being 'baggy' cuts, so even if it stretches out a little more than you might have preferred, it will still look great. I've seen oversized APC's on guys look fantastic - this myth that you HAVE to have ball bustingly tight fits in APC to look good is just that - a myth. They're pretty...
I reckon they'll be spot on for you :) Hope they work out just right. Also, the size 29 PNS come with between a 33' and 32.5' inseam on my two pairs, which - unless you like massive stacks - is convenient news for guys in our height range as no visit to the tailor needed. 
agreed - and APC still work well however you want to size them - tight, slim or loose just by going up or down a size. Many brand's jeans don't give you that range and still look good / flattering. Key is finding a fit suitable for your own build as you suggest. 
I measure 32" in true, measured waist and 29" PNS fits great - I'm average / athletic build - 5'10", 73kg.  I tried a 28 PNS but it was painted on, and have an older 30 PNS that fits nice and loose off my hips. If you're slim and have slim thighs / ass, chose a 29 in PS as it's cut for skinnier builds in the top block. Both have taper, PNS more so. In short - if you're slim/skinny, take the PS - if you're average/athletic, get the PNS - both in 29. If you have thicker...
Pleasure mate. Oddly, I don't find that much useful info on APC fits online - sure, forums full of an insane amount of opinion, often driven by or in reaction to internet hype - but very little motivated by a desire to actually help someone online figure out whether one APC model or size is better for them or not.
you'd be surprised how much difference it does make. If you wear close tolerance / fitted clothing, you'll know a cm here and there in the right places can make or break a fit. I think this is where APC show their experience as designers and pattern makers - and not least over 25 years making jeans. They know that the smallest of pattern changes here and there can improve a fit without resorting to a new model or a dramatic re-cut - and in doing so preserve the...
