IME the thighs won't really stretch at all (had a pair of new cures for awhile).  Other people say otherwise so take that as you will.  I sized down one in the NS and have been wearing this pair every day for the past week or so and they seem fine so far - the waist is still tight.  I expect them to stretch out a bit more and then, once washed, be about perfect.

 

You also might want to just get another brand.

I have to yank them up to my waist and i can barely slip my hand between the jeans and my tight to straighten out my boxers. Thought they still would be OK, but once i looked in the mirror i changed my mind. They looks awkwardly tight in the thigh- skinny, not slim, jeans style. I wore them on and off for a week and still not much better. My gait was awkward and i had a lot of tightness when bending over. So, i ordered a pair in 32. Waist is still OK. Fits about perfect now (i can just barely put my thumb in between the jeans and my waistline). Thighs are still a hair smaller than i'd like, but the fit is much better overall.

 

I'm leaning towards keeping the 32's since they fit better out of the box, but i'm a little concerned that they will stretch out in the waist and become too big (not unwearable, but just not perfect). On the other i could keep the 31s, but the thighs would need to stretch out at least an inch or so to be not only comfortable, but to avoid making me look like a hipster. 

 

Any advice on my particular situation?

 

keep the 32s you wont regret having the extra room you could always cold soak and wear them as they dry, you dont want to look like a fat sausage wrapped in denim. also the 32s have a better chance of fitting in you a few years

Thanks for the replies. I've been wearing the 32s around for a couple hours and they feel pretty good. The main source of discomfort is from the stiffness; the fit actually feels right.

I was wondering if anybody could help me.

 

I love everything about the fit of my New Standard APCs and the plain back pockets and brown stitching; however, I was wondering if there is a raw denim that is a pretty similar except with a longer rise - maybe a medium rise. (I would consider APC medium-low),

 

TIA!

It's a bit difficult to search this thread. If I use 30 in petit standards, would I be able to fit into 29 new standards leg wise?

should be fine. i sized up one for my PS from my NS size and fit is fine.

Oh, and while I am at it: Is there a consensus on whether APC denim fits differently now compared to previous years? I knowwwwwww this is a retarded discussion.uhoh.gif

Sad day to find out that the APC New Standards do not fit my body well.

Been excited to finally try the "standard" of selvedge raw denim for a while, but oh well, you win some you lose some. Got a pair of Tellasons instead which fit me much better though.

I will say that the APCs do look great on many though.
post #10902 of 12806

Never mind i didnt know the Petit New Standard is a newer cut..

 

My only question is how come the Petit New Standard look way skinnier that the Petit Standard?

It is actually the opposite. More of an option in between the NS and the PS, so there will be a little more room in the legs with the PNS than the PS. Still slimmer than the NS, of course.

APC Rescues have about .5 inch more rise. I.e. a 30 in NS has a 10" rise, a 30 in Rescue has a 10.5" rise.

Hi all, I'm looking for a recommendation -- I love my Petit Standards (fit great, stacks well, etc.) but I am looking to branch out and add some more similar denim to my rotation. Any suggestions? Size 31 in PS, btw
