I'm gonna disagree with regard to sizing down 3 in the APC Standards. Â I sized down 1 size, 1.5 from my actual waist measurement. Â The jeans fit great. I'm wearing them for the first time right now. I did, however, have the advantage of buying them in person, and so I was able to try them on. Dan
Cool. It has a lot to do with what size you normally wear. A *lot* of guys buy waist sizes at least one or two sizes big, thinking "Oh my size is 36" when they should be wearing a 34, and then when they buy the APCs which are significantly larger in the waist, they'll need to go down 3 sizes from their normal size to get the right fit. Nothing wrong with buying a size up to get a loose fit, but if you do it with APC, they're gonna be damn loose.
