They will sorta look like how you wear your APC in your pic (esp if you don't downsize), but you will
notice a difference with that rise and top-block design. But they are a slim, slightly relaxed cut, especially if you wear them low like intended. Order them, and since they're sanforized, try them on. If it's too radical a departure, exchange them. The top block is a much more sophisticated fit than APC NS, so that 2" plus difference may not feel as dramatic as you think. But it is
enough for some people to dislike it.
