I'd like to add although APC are the introductory raw jean you might want to browse another simple brand or two if you feel there's anything about APC which puts you off. They're notorious for stretch (multiple sizes) and I personally do not think they age well. I don't expect you to anticipate wearing your jeans down to death but I see much more unattractive, washed out pairs of worn APC than I do attractive and brilliant ones. Pre-styled denim does fade but...

This should also be a good resource for others to see how certain fades are produced and by what brands assuming everyone gives details or activities they engage in for the purpose of this contest.
I'd definitely consider hiking, swimming, tackle football, etc with the somets.
Can you take pictures of the Trovata? Are the photos color-accurate?
Yeah it was a little ridiculous. Outside of SF 28's are usually as small as things get so I can't imagine people who thought to order true to size.
I'm sorry I can't say about their outerwear but I can say their sweaters and a few non-button front shirts are smaller than their button front shirting. I usually get a M in sweaters etc but their S shirts are too large.
I anticipated some resizing and I'm not SF skinny, but Uniqlo oxfords are not sized noticeably different from other dept store/otr stores (j.crew, br, etc). I bought a couple oxfords and a flannel in S, I wore one of them before deciding I really ought to go with XS (or visit a tailor x4) if I ever wanted to wear untucked. I know a lot of people pay for a proxy so I'm going to keep these in case anyone is wanting a couple shirts in S.
