I'm debating picking up a pair of the Petite New Standards that stretch. Does anyone here have em? How's the sizing and do they fade as well (or at all) compared to normal? Hard to fit normal jeans now that I'm squatting.

Apologies in advance, but I can't figure out if any of those answers are responses to my 13477 post...? 😕

32 is the better choice

Thanks for the response.

 

I think you might be right. I recently bought Edwin ED-85s in a 33 and they've stretched 3 inches in just under 2 weeks of wear and that's swaying me, as before that I was considering the 33s. I'm aware the Edwins contain 1.5% elastane but all in all the stretch can't be too dissimilar, right?

Can't speak to the comparison, but the APCs will stretch out in the waist, more than it seems the laws of physics should allow. If you can button them now without them binding or cutting anywhere, the waist will be loose after a few wearings.

Did APC change their sizing to be less vanity sized? I have a PS size 31 and it looks to have a larger waist than my new PNS 32. (was trying to go for the more roomy top block)

What APC cut is the most similar to the Levis 501 CT? I like the APC washes but the Levi's fit :/

Something odd with PS vs PNS. I could barely get into PNS 32s but PS 32 was comfy right off the bat. The SA at the store told me that PS are roomier, even if the rise is smidge lower.

Received the same feedback as Peter1 on this. It was strange to hear, because APC specifies the PNS as featuring a roomier top block

100% agreed. My 31 raw PS fit PERFECTLY, after some stretching.

my 31 PNS, supposedly wider in the top block are ridiculously uncomfortable, and I've put months of wear into them. I think I just have to retire and/or sell them.

Has anyone tried the LOW standard yet?  So much discrepancy between retailers.

Some call it a petit low standard and say it has a low rise.  Mr Porter says it has a mid rise but looks like a low rise in the pics.  Apc say it has a "rather high waist"..

True or false: the Rescue fit was discontinued......  

post #13499 of 13582
I could be wrong but I think the Rescue was gone years and years ago. Even the New Cure, I think may be around but I'm not so sure any more.

New Cure is still around but perhaps only mail order. Never heard of "low standard" before but it appears to exist, though what it actually IS is hard to tell. If there's one hole in the APC line up it's a PS with a mid or higher rise, IMO.
