I just got my APC NS in size 30. My waist measures 32". I tried them on and they button with no problem. The are not too big or to small. Am I to expect them to stretch out and end up huge?

PS: these are so stiff it's not even funny.

Edit: Looks like I'll be keeping them regardless as I tried them on to go look in the mirror and had them on for tops 4 or 5 and they've got slight honeycombs already.

Thats exactly how mine fit. Ive got 30's and Im usually a 32. I wish I would have downsized 1 or 2 more but they arent crazy big or anything. Ive been losing weight recently too so theyre gonna get even more loose haha.

Yeah, I went with what Denim Bar suggested even though my instinct was to go with a 29 as I do prefer a slimmer fit. It's not a big deal though. They're just jeans. Now I know how to size with APC and maybe they'll turn out to be perfect. How long does it take for some of the stiffness to settle down? In all the pics I've seen they look really soft.

I know the standard size 2 down but what exactly does that mean? I am an actual 33-33.5" waist. Does that mean go down 2 inches from that to a 31 APC since they are vanity sized or does it mean take the corresponding APC size (according to Context APC 31 measures 33.5" actual waist)? and go down two APC sizes from that?

I wear a 32 levi relaxed jean. I want the rescues to fit properly (not baggy) but I don't want them to be too tight. I still want to be able to wear them without a belt. I'm just not sure between an APC 30 or 31. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I wear a 32 in levi's and gap. I got a pair of rescues in a 30 and they were an inch to big and that is before stretch. If I were you I would get a 28. A tagged 28 is an actual 30 and they will stretch out to a 32 or more. If it makes you feel safer you could go for a 29. If you want them to be baggy then go for a 30, but you will end up having to wear a belt.

I feel the same way. For a first raw denim purchase and on-line I think I got an almost perfect fit.

I wore mine for about a month and a half and they werent falling right or whatever so I hot soaked them and dried them. They only lost a little bit of color, but all the starch is gone and they look and feel a lot better now. Ive got some minimal fading, theyre coming along nicely.

Hi,

I wear a 31 in Levi and Nudie jeans. They fit snugly, but have streached over time. My measured waste is 34.

Should I go for a 30 or a 29 in APC new rescue?

I don't want them tight, but i also don't want them to be to loose once they have stretched out.

Thanks in advance.

My measured waist is a 34 as well and I went with a 33 in Nudies. They have stretched out to a 35 now. For my Rescues I bought a 31 and it fit perfect (snug) in the waist, top block, and thighs, but stretching out slightly in the top block and thighs. I would have went with a 30 but they were just too tight. Depending on how you want them to fit, you could go with a 30 or 31.

I disagree with that advice if he wears a size 31 in levis and nudies. APCs are larger than tagged size to a greater degree than those other brands and they seem to stretch more. If 31s in those two brands ended up stretching too much, then i would go with a 29 in the APC Rescue, which isn't that slim of a cut (relatively).

Hi,
I have had my size 27 NS for a couple of months now, I'm typically a 29. I have yet to wash them. At this point the waist has stretched out some and I wish I would have actually sized down to a 26. Anyhow, if I were to wash these would I get any decent shrinkage in the waist? Any suggestions on the best way to wash these if looking to shrink them. If they did shrink would they just stretch right out to where they are now?

Thanks

Thanks for your help guys. I'm going to go with a size 30.

When you wash them, they basically go back to the original size they were when you bought them in most all areas. However, they stretch back out quicker than the first time. There is no way to get them permanently smaller through washing.

I wore mine around the house again for a bit today and they have been showing some decent honeycombs. How long would I expect to wait for them to soften up a bit? I don't plan on soaking.

I forgot to ask this before...do the Rescues have the same tiny ass pockets as the NS? I couldn't even think of getting my wallet and keys in my front pockets....yet along my hands.

I was thinking more in terms of his natural waist size. We have the same size, but buy different sizes in pants. It all depends on how you want them to fit. I have a medium build with slightly larger than average legs. I happen to look ridiculous if I wear pants that are too tight in the top block and skin tight on the thighs. I have to have a little room. But ... what do I know. In a few months, I might be bitching that my APCs are too large.
