perhaps even a 29. what does your waist measure where your jeans sit? and your thigh?
post #11147 of 12831

Hey guys, 

 

I posted before about ordering a pair of size 29 NS black denim and I usually wear size 30 on LVC and W+H jeans and pants. After reading this thread, I wanted to exchange for a size 28 but couldn't do so. I got my jeans yesterday and they fit snug but not super tight like some people have mentioned. I was wondering if there's ways of reducing the stretching and hopefully keeping it around the same as what I have now? I know it's going to stretch but hopefully it won't go like 2-3 sizes up or anything.  

 

Can post pictures later on to show the fit. 

 

Thanks. 

 

BTW, I find it funny that here and sufu all recommending to size 2-3 sizes down for NS but if you look at actual stores selling the jeans like TBS, they all recommend only one size down. Hell, Mr. Porter actually said to take your true size and don't size down...

I only sized down 1 on some NS and they were fine (maybe a little sag). They'll only stretch as much as your waist pushes them. Post a pic.

Can anyone point me in the direction to some petite standards in sizes larger than 34?

i wonder if this happens to any of you. i would like to know if there are solutions to this ?? my model is petite standard. i hate how my jeans have this white line runs along the side of my jeans

i want to hem before washing out the starch and stiffness. how much will NS shrink in length after a wash?

You stretched them out. Maybe you could get a bigger pair. Or lose some thigh girth and give them a soak to let them return to original shape. Maybe a blue magic marker could do the trick - but if they fade and the marker remains it won't look too good.

I'd size up if I were you. I had a pair that the seam blew on after stretching.

well it depends, i don't have large thighs at all but i get a white ling from the selvedge stretching.

It shouldn't be too much of a problem, it does however look like your jawns are too small for your body

Having a hard time deciding whether to get a size 31 or 32 for the APC New Standard.

I just measured my waist and it is 34.5 inches, I normally wear size 32 jeans. Should I stick to my normal size or size down one to account for stretching?

Alright, so I "can" wear Levi's 510's in 28x30 (I'm 5'8, ~127 lbs. / 174 cm *I'm a tall 5'8*, ~57 kg), but they're a little too tight for my liking (particularly in the waist). This pair of 510's in 29x30 I have, though, look great on me (in my opinion, of course, ha), but there's more room in the waist than I'd like (I can fit like two to three fingers in between).

So in other words, a 28.5 waist, if such a size existed, would've been perfect on me. smile.gif



So anyway, I've been looking into getting a pair of New Cures (these are the slimmest fit that APC offers, right?). What gets me, though, is the conflict between sizing down one and sizing down two. I like how my 29x30 Levi's fit around the entirety of my legs (they're not skin-tight, but still slimmer than slim), so how should I go about sizing?

I'll try to get pics of me wearing the Levi's soon (if I can) to give a better idea of the kind of fit I like.

Are the numbers here trustworthy?

I wanted the exact same thing as you, as you can see from my user picture, I used the same photograph as you to get the fit that I wanted.  I'm also in between a 28 and a 29.  It took me three tries to get it right.  I started with a tagged size 26 PS (sized down 2 from my normal size of 28):

 

Those were way too small so I tried going with the NS, true to size (tagged size 28).  but those were too big:

 

So then I finally bought of a pair of TTS (size 28) NC, which are just about spot on.  They fit perfectly when I bought them and now after several months of wear they are slightly look in the waist.  This picture is the day I got them:

 

Hope that helped.

Oh hey, did you happen to post these same pictures on hypebeast, too?

Haha, spent the better part of a few hours browsing the posts in the APC thread just yesterday.



Anyway, I actually like how the PS fit on you, tbh.

Thanks for the help! Looks like it's gonna be a 26 in PS then. smile.gif


(I found out that PS are actually slimmer than the NC due to the taper, hence the change in cut.)
