My waist size is around 30 inches

post #11237 of 12858
Just picked up a pair of rescues in 30 (sizing down two from my normal waist), thinking they would be perfect for muscular thighs. The waist is slightly snug, and I have no issue buttoning up the top button. The problem is the thigh. They are very confining, and in order to compensate for that, I wear the jeans lower on my hip to give some extra room. The problem with this is that wearing them on my hip will most likely stretch out the waist to a greater extent and force me to cuff them even more than I am doing (since they are lower on my obody). I really want these jeans to work. What are your suggestions?

I am wondering:

Should I size up 1 to accommodate the thighs and then worry about stretching in the waist region by wearing a belt with them?

How much thigh stretching (actual quantity) usually occurs with wearing these jeans?

Thanks

Where is the cheapest that I can buy them and ship to the States for? Really don't want to pay $175 for these, seems overpriced. Azalea is $140 with a 20% off coupon code which is about the right price but they don't carry the size I need. Anyone find something in that range?

FYI I wear a sz 30 and take a 29. 28 doesn't work for me, I can't button the top two buttons. I used to own a pair of APC NS in 28 hoping they would stretch enough and they never did. I am 6'0", 160 lbs. On the flip side, I owned a pair of APC in some other cut in size 30 and they literally would fall off of me. Hoping 29 would finally do it for an otherwise amazing pair of jeans. I would strongly advise against automatically going for two sizes down based on internet advice and trying it on yourself.

Tres Bien Shop, if you can find 30% off code. Otherwise wait for their sale next week

APC raw denim is not in the tbs sale. the cheapest you'll find them is at TBS, bit only when they do the once a season flat rate (I think it was 30 euros) discount codes. They come in at ~125 shipped to NA.

Is new standard or petit standard better for a certain body build or type? I am 5 foot 7 and weigh about 125 lbs so pretty small. I bike so my legs arent big but they are not twigs and not exactly skinny. My actual waist is usually a 29. I plan to cuff my pair, I'm thinking I will have to hem.

Any idea on what size to get for each cut and which cut might look better on me?

Any idea when the last time that sale was, and has it been fairly consistent in timing?

I bought my pair from machus for 131(?) dollars shipped. Was great!

They announce coupon codes on their twitter and facebook accounts. I can't remember when they last announced them though. I do know they did one in the last winter last year.

Some places other than Tres Bien do offer discounts on them. You just have to keep checking forums.

Just saw these at the Norse store for 108 Euros, is that a decent price? Do you guys in the States get dinged customs for when you get items from the Eurozone? I live across the border and shipping to either a US proxy or a Canadian address is the same price.

Keep checking man, you won't be able to find a decent deal if you have no patience. Considering how eager you are to get them (judging by your posts in Sales alert and this thread) you might as well pay retail -10% buying from the affiliate at needsupply. I've been looking for a decent deal on them well over 2 or 3 weeks and it's yet to come in my size. Be patient, the deal will come!

I'd recommend just buying from ns or somewhere with a return policy now instead of waiting for a deal, which are pretty infrequent and may not come with easy returns. Waiting a month or more, still risking being beat to the deal, and not guaranteeing proper sizing to save $40 just doesn't seem worth it for just about about anyone considering buying expensive clothing.

I bought a pair on the last sale in early may 2012.  No idea about the timing.
