I'm thinking about getting some A.P.C.s as my first pair of raw jeans. However, as many are, I'm finding it difficult to nail down the sizing. I was in an A.P.C. store yesterday and tried on a 33 waist (I've attached a picture), are these too tight? They felt fine, had about an inch of room in the waist and the thighs were snug but comfortable.
I tried on a 32 waist (didn't take a picture), there wasn't much room in the waist but really snug on the thighs. It did feel a little awkward to move but couldn't tell if it was the 14.5oz denim or the size was too tight.
I can't figure out whether the 32s will stretch enough to not be skin tight in the leg because they fit great from the knees down? Or whether the 33s will end up baggy even though they fit round the thigh and have a little space in the waist? I'm a 33 in ED-85s and Levi 510s, and I've read a lot about how people size down 1 - 3 sizes!
I have searched the internet for advice on sizing but have just ended up more ambivalent than ever.
P.s. The sales assistant said they only stretch about .5 - 1 inch. :s
