totally agree with you

 

I wear PNS but I would immediately jump on something similar with a higher rise.

Yep.  Tbh I'm over the whole low rise thing and just want to have a secure fit sitting higher on the waist, place my balls where I want them without them being visible or squashed..

 

Ordered a pair from End to see what they're like.  From the pics they're comparable to the ones on apc website but a different name.  The ones on Mr Porter I think are recycled photos or a different style as the rise still looks short.

can anybody comment on the difference in fit, if any, between the stonewashed pns (100% cotton) and raw pns?

i take a 26 in raw ps and have taken the same size in the three pairs of stonewashed pns i have, and the fit is pretty similar

i'm hesitant to order a raw pair in the same size, though, going off of what you guys have said about trying on ps and pns in the same sizes

Just ordered a pair of the stone washed PNS yesterday, I'll let you know

I tried on the washed and would have taken the same size (assuming they don't stretch).

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.

I'm exactly in that same position. I had an APC PS 31 which after some stretching still was pretty tight in the waist. Got me a new pair of PNS in 32 thinking it would be roomier in the top block PLUS sized up 32 vs 31. Seems kind of tight right off the bat....could you button up your PNS right away? And if you don't mind what is your height and weight?

Not sure if thats relevant really as everyones proportions are different, but I think its safe to say that the pns isn't the option if you're looking for something roomier than the ps

I'm 5'10, 165 lbs, with a true waist measurement of 31" (at belly button). but I got dem juicy glutes. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I prefer the fit of PNS from the knee down, but the top block is brutal. Already hemmed them too, maybe I can get sell it for cheap on grailed? bored.gif

The jeans just cam in and lined up with my just washed raw PNS they're a cm smaller in the waist. Tried on they're as tight -perhaps just a smidge more- as the the raw PNS were new. I'd reason the two stretch the same. 

 

Interesting that they've moved production to Vietnam

 

Edit: For anyone interested, I've noted a sharp decline in quality. The tack stitches on the back pockets are much smaller and overall stitching is sloppy. Around the hem on one of the legs, the selvedge inseam has been tucked then stitched in-leaving a a wrinkled effect. Better than what you'd get from J. Crew or Acne but still disappointing

glad to know im not the only one who wants a higher rise from apc jeans. I wear the pns and whenever I sit down I'm almost sitting down on my belt.

post #13511 of 13582
so my raw pns in a 26 arrived today, and while the fit through the leg is good, the top block is tight

i can only button up the first two buttons, and when i tried walking around, i could feel a lot of tension in the top


definitely a different feel when compared to the three pairs of stonewashed pns i have (the bleached pair from a few seasons back, the "permanent collection" light blue stonewashed pair, and the faded black stonewashed pair from a season or two ago) in the same size

i can button those all of the way up easily (though they're a bit tight around the waist) and there's no tension at all

i also have a pair of the black gabardine pns that i'm able to button up all of the way comfortably (albeit a little tight) with no tension either



originally bought the 26 raw pns to replace my 26 raw ps because the latter has a slightly longer inseam (i don't like hemming) and i wanted a stronger taper, but now i don't know whether to just keep the ps and keep wearing them, or order a size 27 pns and see how that would work out
post #13512 of 13582

Definitely try the size up and if they don't work stick to your ps or carry on searching.  Just two buttons even on the initial wear is just wrong

Any experience on black APCs?

I've been interested in seeing how these wear in and fade....

I compared a five year old Made in Macau pair with a Made in Vietnam pair I just got. The quality is the same as it was 5 years ago and they fit exactly the same.

Which black ones? The black raw fit different, tighter, than the indigos. I'd recommend sizing up. I haven't worn them enough to get fades.
post #13515 of 13582
I've tried on the raw black and raw indigo a few times and found the same thing. I sized one up for the faux noir / black ones. Also note, as I've mentioned several times that sometimes the indigo ones offer a 1-2% stretch which makes a huge comfort difference but the same black pair don't for some reason.
