Sized down 2 from 33 to 31 in the NS and theyre skintight. I couldn't do the top button until after doing some lunges, so I think sizing down depends on your build (average). I think these will end up being a hair big, seeing that I was able to wrestle them on. I don't think going down to a 30 wouldve been the best choice, since I'm just looking for a regular slim/straight not a slim cut. Plus I will probably wash these on a semi regular (once a month) basis.
one size up? i thought they fit more or less similarly with exception of the lower leg...
i wear 28 in ns 29 in ps; should i get 30 in nc?
I have your exact same problem: fabric bunching out weird.
I've also tried the New Cures in the same size as the Petite Standard, but nothing has changed though. I think this is due to the seat area (sorry, don't know how's it called) which is too big. I'm now trying to size down to a 27 in NC in the hope this strange effect goes away. Hope I don't end up with a pair of jeggins, but these jeans are known to stretch much so I'm pretty confident they'll be great in the end.
edit: forgot to add, I actually didn't have any problems buttoning up neither the NC nor the PS even though the former were almost painted on. Maybe I bought them one size too big (did I?), I don't know if this is your case too...
You look like you got some muscles in your thighs as well, Bryce! Which size is that and how are they in the thigh and waist?
they're size 33 and to be honest so far they're tight as fuq in the thighs, but the waist fits fine. I'm gonna let them get used to me a little, and I think that should solve everything, and probably be my favorite pair of jeans.
Which would be more flattering for a skinny person who wants a slim but not skinny cut: a sized down 3 NS or a sized down 1 PS?
If you want slim not skinny go with NS. It's the classic slim jean. Non SFers might even say it's skinny. Sizing down three is good for some, but if you're muscular you might want to size down two. It stretches a ton though.
As a skinny guy who owns/owned all 3 cuts of APCs and a pair of Nudie Slim Jims, I would say go for the Slim Jims. The cut is more appealing IMO and is a little more slim than the NS, yet, not skinny at all. I found the NS to be a little "baggy" in comparison (im comparing a slimjim size 29 to my NS 26). That's my recommendation anyway--they're both in the same quality/price range.
On another note, I just received my PS. I actually really like them. It seems to be less constricting in the seat area compared to the NC, but has a nice taper down the legs to it. Got too many jeans in my daily cycles though :/ Someone care for a pair of NS in 26? #shamelessplug
