What size ns should i get? I wear RRDS and DH mij both sz 28, but both has scretched to 32" my waist is about 28", but i like to wear my jeans two inches below the navel at 32" so should i continue and get the 28 in NS?
I like APC denim so much that I bought an NS and an NR. I usually wear 30" x 33" Banana Republic straight cut jeans. I got an NS in 29" x 34" and it was tight in the hips and thighs, but barely buttonable all the way up. After 2 weeks of daily wear, it has stretched to a comfortable siim fit in the waist and hips. The thighs are still skin tight. I'd describe the NS as a noticeably slim fit tapered (slight) jean on me. The bunching looks good on these jeans. Do you think the thighs will stretch anymore after 2 weeks? I also got an NR in 30" x 34" hoping to get a more classic straight cut. The waist, hips and thighs are already too large out of the box. The shape and size of the lower leg and leg opening give the NR a straight leg look on me - which is what I am looking for. They are being returned for a 29" x 34" NR - I think. Does anyone think that a 30" NS will look more classic 501? Thanks. I'll post pictures and would welcome any comments.
I'd have thought your build would suit rescues better. If you size down on ns you'll most likely end up with a loose waist and really tight through the legs
I don't see that happening because his inseam is probably pretty short. He's either going to have to hem in which case he'll lose a lot of the tapering, or stack, in which case it won't be that tight b/c it will just be bunched up at the ankles. None of those measurements are especially big. My last pair of NS was size 30, sized down 3 from my true waist, and still wasn't slim, I sold it b/c the rise was still too high.
