How's the fabric? I've seen a lot of comments about APCs "wearing like iron" and generally being among the more durable of high end denim. Is this accurate? Does it only apply to the popular New Standards, or can I expect fairly tough, heavyweight denim in a pair of Rescues as well? How's the rise? I generally prefer lower rise (8-9"), and I am definitely not a fan of the current high rise trend. Where do the Rescues fit into this? I imagine if I size up, will I lose any chance of a slim fit? If I'm planning on buying a pair now while training (and expandingmy waist, thighs, etc by extension), will they expand slowly over time as I fit into them, or will they be just incredibly baggy after two weeks? I'm mainly wondering if I can buy a pair three sizes down from an estimated eventual waist size (which would be around one down from my current waist or my current waist, depending on where they sit) and wear them long term as I become less waifish. How's the bleeding on these? I was originally quite ambivalent about dry denim as I was worried that they'd bleed everywhere, but a few people mentioned that Nudies almost don't bleed at all. Is this the case with APC as well, or would I have to worry about everything I wore and sat on before the first few washes? I realize there are some sizing questions in here, but I figured I should make a separate thread due to the general questions.
