I ordered my PS from Azaleasf probably in May and Context's chart was pretty much spot on. 0.25 difference maybe here and there but that's expected since charts are not exact to begin with

Then a few days later the thighs had stretched out and now they are pretty comfortable for kicking around the house.

Cool thanks man. If my pair's skin tight while standing even, I'm guessing they won't stretch out enough? Guess I'll size up and wear a belt.

if so could you post a pic of how they fit?

i asked about these in the store the other day. they said this is not a new fit available in the regular raw indigo- rather, it's a seasonal variant that arrives in different fabrics like corduroy or light-washed denim. it's essentially a petit standard with a shorter inseam, which obviously makes it less tapered.

I have pair of NS I ordered in Nov. 2011 from Context that has stretched considerably in the waist; tagged 35 that measured 36.  It's now a 38. I can dig it.

 

My meazurements:

Waist: 36"

Donk (Hips): 40.5"

Thigh: 12.5"

 

also have a pair of PS I ordered from Context a couple days later that I managed to stretch in the waist.  This time, I ordered a tagged 33 that's measured a 33.

 

Measurements of the APC: PS I ordered in Nov. 2011:

Waist: 33"

Thigh: 11.75"

 

I'm no manlet, but I managed to stretch the waist out to 36".  The thighs still fit snug and I'm okay with that.  I'm not saying you can get the same results, but I thought I'd share since you guys are bugging about sizing.

Thanks for reply tke damn pretty tall and skinny lol. Got my new standard today wasn't worried if I could get them on. I bought size 25 apc new standards 3-4 years ago got them on with little struggle didn't like the fit/look on my semi muscular thighs took a hit on selling. This time I bought size 27 on even easier but my thighs thanking me.

What I'm askin now is are size 28 new cures measured waist really 30? Because I know the waist will be too big but size 27 knee below taper might be too slim for this old man. I try to size for my thighs and not too slim knee below because I have slim calves compared to thigh ratio.

yup the measurements on the site are pretty accurate granted that each jean varies slightly. when i called to exchange, he measured a 26 ps and it was about 26.5 inches in the waist. so its pretty accurate.

post #10718 of 12863
They haven't had safety pins for a long time.

I'd say if they are uncomfortable in the thigh when standing you may not have the right size.  They will stretch a bit, but won't become baggy really.  Also try kneeling down and spreading your legs - if those two things are difficult and you like being mobile, you might reconsider that size.

You called them recently? My size 27 is now their size 28 measurements since they changed their chart not long ago.  I'm still confused as to why they changed it since ppl are saying other stores have not heard anything about APC changing their sizes.

 

I just suggest anyone to call and have them measure the size they are thinking about getting

Yup called them yesterday. He personally measured the jeans for me. Also the leg opening on mine is a 6.25 rather than the 6 on the site. I'm guessing they changed it recently around march(?) of this year. The funny thing is, the customer service guy at context thought the ps was still vanity sized unit he measured them. He was pretty shocked. Yeah I recommend calling as well.

Two questions; How's the fit? and to stack or cuff.
