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).
