i dont know, earlier he said he wanted fades on just the front part and was asking how it could be done. it really can't. i really would recommend RRL as well (or our legacy 1970s wash peepwall[1].gif)
post #10862 of 12832

Just got some new APC jeans in the mail and was wondering how they fit. The first three are NS in 28 and the last two are PS in 29. I only want one pair so I was wondering which one fits better or if I should exchange and get a totally different size. I'm not going to roll them like I did in the last two pics, but I wanted to see what they looked like with less stacking. I don't want too tight a fit since my legs are pretty skinny. Thanks!

I think you need to size up one in both cuts

Since you don't want too tight of a fit on the legs, go NS

I think they both look good.  The NS are right on the money for sure.  I wouldn't change the sizes, just decide if you want a slim jean or a tight jean.  If it were me I would keep both of them, but the PS rise would probably be too low for me to wear frequently.

 

definitely do not size up on the NS

They both look really good.  I would try wearing them with the types of shoes you wear most to see how the different size leg opening will look with them then choose which cut to keep.

...and yet another NS sizing question...been reading historical post and still looking for answers...my tts is 32 (Levis 505) or 32.5 on other brands...I have read to size down as far as 29 as it WILL stretch (seen comments @ 32, 33, 33.5, even 34)..With varied stretching results, I am still looking for assistance..Right now, I'm leaning between 30 or 31..BTW, I normally wear belt with denims...Thanks in advance..

PS..suggestion on any affiliates that carry NS with a good return policy just in case I screw up my size..I know APC does't go on sale as well

I've had a pair of NS for about 2 weeks and worn them everyday to stretch. I'm about the get them hemmed, but am wondering what the inseam shrinkage is like post wash. Should I do a hot soak before hemming to pre-shrink? Please advise. I hate cuffing and want to chop 'em off ASAP.

about an inch is a safe bet. so if you want to hem, i would hem them 1" longer than you want, so when you eventually wash them they dont end up too short.

for what its worth, my beat to hell new standards have been cold machine washed 6 or so times (i can't remember how many exactly) and they now measure 1" shorter than when they were new. I've never hot washed/soaked or tumble dried though.

My experience was that after a soak and a few wears the jean fit better around the waist.  From what I've read, non-sanforized jeans will shrink 5% or more.  Sanforized will shrink 1-2%.  When you shrink a pair of 501s they will lose size permanently.  I would think the same is suggested with the Sanforized shrinkage percentage.

apc's stretch like crazy. they will stretch right back out in no time. happens with all three of mine (ns, ps, and nc).
