post #10036 of 12963

Hey, I was looking to get my first pair of APCs (Petit standards) and am trying to decide what size to get. 

 

From what I've gathered, they will stretch about 2-3in at the waist but won't stretch that much around the legs. Is this accurate? After stretching do they keep their shape or will they shrink back when washed? 

 

My true waist size is 28, thigh-10 and knee-7. The jeans I wear now are a good fit and are a size 30 (they hand around my hip and fit perfectly around my legs).  So I was thinking of getting the petit standard in a size 27, since they fit my leg measurements almost perfectly and will hopefully stretch out to fit my waist (I just tried on a pair of 27 waist pants that I have lying around and they are extremely tight).

 

Cheers.

What i've read in this forum, is that APC has very large sizes. Once I saw someone said that 28 was actually size 34 in normal waist size. So i think you need to choose 25 or 26. My true size is also 28, and i am going to buy 25 or 26.

remember it is not just a straight, taper down, it tapers to the knee, then is straight (the straightness just means there aint anymore tapering, but this doesn't affect how narrow it is)

Go to an arabic marketplace or something and get it for better quality and lower price.

Weren't you the fella who wrote: "I have pretty large thighs and ass so I get a lot of problems in the crotch where my ass pulls back the fabric and the crotch gets really tight, turning it into a ball grinding machine."

Large thighs will need a larger fitting jean than either the PS or NC. My NC's thighs are 20" and the PS is even narrower. I don't consider myself one who has "pretty large thighs". APC's Rescue is the more relaxed fit, and it may work for you. Also, a shorter rise tends not to work well w/ a larger ass. Do pants w/ a 9.5 - 10" rise fit you well?

Couldn't tell you about the Nakes and Famous.

Have you considered actually visiting a store to try on APC, Naked and Famous, and others?

no. not all apc run the same. different cuts run differently. for PS and NC, you're gonna want to probably only size down 1 at most 2 taking into account the thighs probably won't really stretch much, if any at all. so yeah go for a 28, maybe a 27.

post #10043 of 12963

Looking for some feedback.  I am 5'8", 175 lbs. Picked up size 32 New Standards.  These have a few days of break-in on them already so they've stretched a bit.

 

1) I think the current stacking may be a bit much.  Would you hem these or leave them as is?

2) The crotch is a bit tight.  Will these stretch out there, or just at the waist?

 

Please ignore the ugly ass room and my crappy old Sperrys.

mmm maybe size up? it looks like that button is gonna pop off
post #10045 of 12963

I see exactly what you're saying but honestly I don't have any issues with the button. They actually fit comfortably. I'm worried sizing up would mean these suckers are gonna stretch to "belt only" widths...  They've loosened up some already, but I can tell they've got more loosening up to do....

 

Legs??  Too much stacking?

post #10046 of 12963
The legs and stacking looks fine to me. I would definitely sag those more. And you're tucking your shirt in for the fit pic only right?

Will do on the sagging.  And yes shirt only tucked in for the pics.  Thanks

got APC NS in sz 31, and tried them on but id have had to fucking suck in to able to button them up, and they wouldve been so uncomfortable. 33 for a safe fit?

it seems that 32 would be tight but still uncomfortable, but that 33 would be best. not sure thooo

Here are my measurements,

thigh - 21"
waist - 30"
calves - 15"

I don't think any stores around me carry all those jeans.

So are you saying the NS just tapers slightly more in the thighs and that both cuts have similarly wide openings at the end?
