Dude to be honest, I think you should just get regular sized PS... They will fit a lot better than the NS's you are currently wearing and if you dislike the stacks just take it to the tailor but I'm not sure if you'll like the Rescues. It's all about the fit, if you're more of the loose guy go with the rescues but I think the PS's will look good on you if you size it right.

^this, but thighs just take alot longer. took maybe a month of constant wear to get the thighs fully stretched out on the first pair of APC's i had that I sized down alot on.

Has anyone had experience with APC Cures (ie. old cures)? (not to be confused with new cures)

Seems like they only sell em at the apc online store
http://www.apc.fr/wwuk/men/jeans/cure-jeans_pFV758371/colour-indigo_dBA00003082-BV00256404.html

Anyone know how they differ from the other fits?

I have APC NS in size 25
PS in 26
NC in 26

Reckon I should jsut stick with a size 26 if I were to get the cures?

I terms of sizing with my current jeans I think I couldve sized down to a 25 with the NC but PS in a 25 are too tight and with NS i can fit either a 25 or 24

As a result, I did get a fair amount of stretch in the thighs, so that now they're perfect. I literally couldn't bend my leg past about 45 degrees in front of me because they were so tight. But I got enough stretch everywhere that, like I said, they're perfect. But that's just my case (big thighs, etc.)

Yeah I might just tough it out and see what happens. Curious though, you say they stretched to eventually fit perfectly. Since fit is pretty subjective, can you describe how they ended up fitting in the thigh?

anyone have any idea how a.p.c. seasonal jeans fit, such as this
http://www.oki-ni.com/legwear/a-p-c-men-s-vintage-jean-apc1204nvy.html

same as apc new standard?
post #11392 of 12780

Not sure - i'd just drop oki an email. To me they look a bit more relaxed than the new standard but it'll all depend on the model / fit. Probably best to ask.

 

Some new season stuff has dropped on tbs - the classic bomber looks nice but £300 is kinda pricey. 

post #11393 of 12780
Can anyone who has recently purchased the indigo PS from TBS confirm on the sizing? Are they vanity size (2 sizes larger than tagged) or elsewise?

yah i think you should tough it out. if these are your first pair of apcs you should wear them for a while and see what happens. there's no science behind the fit. everyone has different bodies and everyone has different fits. with that said, im on my 3rd pair of apcs and for me i size down 3 rather than 1. the thighs are definitely tight starting off (skin tight) but they do loosen up.

Thats good to know. My APC is tight on the thighs and I was thinking about selling them because of that. After they're stretched out wouldn't they shrink back when you wash them?

yes, but they stretch back out alot quicker after a wash.

Just ordered a pair of New standard black denim from tres bien: http://shop.tres-bien.com/brand/apc/new-standard-black-denim-1

Anyone know if these are still made in Japan and do they fit the same as the indigo NS?
post #11398 of 12780

Hey guy's, just wanted to get your thoughts on how my PS fit. I'm normally a 32 but sized down to a 29. Only worn them for a few weeks, but the thighs are still a bit tight. I hope they stretch out as much as you guys say!

I think it looks ok. It should stretch out.
post #11400 of 12780

Thanks timbaland, they were starting to feel good after a couple of weeks of continous wear. But i went on holiday for 4 weeks and they felt a tad tight when I tried on again. Will just wear them flat out from now on!
