post #13336 of 13582

I used to have a pair of petit new standards in a size 29 and they were quite big in the waist and was pretty slim in the thighs. Should I get a size 28 in petit new standards? Is that going to be sizing down too much? I'm round a true size 30/31

should be fine

i sized down 2 on my petit new standards. the thighs were really tight but stretched out a lot after a few weeks of wear.

 

now they're really comfy

What if I went to a size 28 in petit standard? I'm mainly worried about it being too tight in the thighs but i'm not sure

they would probably be too tight in the thighs. i had a pair of petit standards in the same size as my pns that i had to sell because they were too tight.

Finally stretching out after a few weeks

post #13341 of 13582

Hello everybody, long time reader - finally signed up and this is my first post :)

I have a sizing question. I've read sooo much about APCs, even had ones but still want  opinion of you guys if possible. So, my waist measures 83cm-32inch. A week ago i ordered PNS in size 30, as I assumed they would fit based on a fact I had PS 29 before(those were super thight and never really streteched out enough in thighs). They turned out to be much thigher than i expected and measured. They hug my thighs and with my experiences from previous pair i know that thighs dont stretch that much... So i exchanged them for PNS 31. I quite like the fit in thighs, and Im leaning towards keeping them. Leg , below the knee is quite ok as well, i might get it slightly tapered tho. The thing is, waist is sligthly loose. I would say like 1cm too loose. They dont fall off my ass but im afraid of stretching.. What do u guys think ? Should I just wear a belt and not worry to much ? There is no pressue on waist, so it shouldnt be massive right ? Here are some picture, i hope they help

Yes, you will need to wear a belt to counter the stretching. A lot of people including myself do this. I received a size 32 PNS at first but the thighs were super tight to the point of seeing visible inseam marks on my inner thigh. That just meant my thighs were literally packed sausages lol. So I exchanged for a size 33 and it is dam near perfect. Roomy thigh while maintaining the nice taper. A bit loose on my waist though unfortunately, but I have been wearing my belt and my apcs haven't stretched in after ~25 wears.

exactly, on me with sz 30 i had them on the back of my thighs.. not the best look in my opinion. Yeah, so I'm staying with those. What do u think about the fit btw ? I think I'll taper them slightly, but still want to break them in a little before I do it, am I right ?

So many other brand choices out there and other fits from apc.  Why purchase something thats too big in the waist and needs to be tapered?

well, I like the quality and the way they fade. Other fits wouldnt work, PS have skinnier thighs and below the knee are even wider.. Taper is not a big alternation that i would probably do in most other jeans as well. So yeah, Im happy with these if the waist wont strech too much theyre perfect. But what other brands would you reccomend with fits similar to this ? 

post #13349 of 13582

Paying full retail for jeans and then having to change their shape isn't something I would be happy doing but if thats what you're usually about then its all good.  Staying within apc I maybe would have at least tried a 30 ps or try normal on the nc to get that taper you want. 

The main problem I had when not sizing down on the waist was that the top block area around the crotch turned into a big saggy mess when they softened up and didn't look pretty when I walked.  But everyone's experience is different.

I wear size 32 jeans (true size and they usually stretch to 33 after wear) and these are tagged 30 (measured size 31) New Standards.  Should I size down 1 more to 29?  How do these look?  I just don't want them to be too baggy in 6 months.
