When I got mine, size 29, they measured 31" laid flat with the waist aligned, but if I was careless, left the dip in the waist, didn't pull the fabric tight, I could measure it 29" across.

The thigh on my 29's measures 11.75" right now measured the same way context measures, and they were never too tight in the thigh so they probably didn't stretch much. Also keep in mind all of context's measurements are to the closest half-inch. I had a pair of 30's back in the day that I sold because they were too big for me and looking back at the measurements I took, from new their thigh was 11.875"

Chillip, I think for you a 30 may be best if you're looking at New Standards, but you may need to take them to a seamstress or something at some point to taper them from the knee down. When you get them, just make sure the top button is hard if not impossible to button at first, and the legs should be uncomfortably slim, but not painfully slim.

wow so interesting. i only asked because the last pair of NS i owned were in size 28, and I have just under 22" thighs and even after wearing them around for close to a year they were always quite tight in the thighs. It jsut seems strange that one size (28-29) could make that big a difference, but I guess if I get another pair of NS again, I'll be going for the 29s

 

 

EDIT: went over to context to check their measurement tables.. 29s list at 11" thighs, which makes way more sense from my experience.

are you seriously recommending a size 30 for a guy with the following specs?

 

Waist = 35"
Hips = 35"
Thigh = 23.5"
Calf = 14"

I can absolutely confirm that the sizing changed.

I wear an old pair of size 30 New Standards, but when I bought a new pair of size 30 the waist (and most other measurements) was the same size as the stretched out old pair. To get the same size in the waist, thigh, and leg opening I had to go to a 29, which has a shorter inseam. The same cut literally doesn't exist anymore.

do you mind posting the measurements on the new 29s?

he's not much bigger than me and I wear 29's so it makes sense based on the old sizing, but if its really changed, maybe 31, and make sure the store has a decent return policy.

Thanks for all the replies...but now I'm confused.  Good thing I came here in the first place.  Are you saying that a 30 would be took big or too small for me.  On context, the 31 and 32 for the NS have the same measurements for everything but the waist so maybe I should order those two and see which one fits best?  I just have no idea about how much they will stretch for me.

The waist sizing on context is definitely wrong. My 28 PNS measures 30'' in waist, and PNS is their newest cut. 

So I'm 99% sure all APCs measure 2'' more than the tagged size.

My 29s measure very close to the context ones: 15" waist, 11" thigh, 8 1/4" knee, 7 1/2" leg opening. The critical part that context miss out is the inseam, at 33". I'm pretty sure that except for the inseam, these measurements correspond to the old size 30s.

thanks. that sounds like it makes sense from what my 28s measured at.

if your gonna order from nordstrom and return them all like you said just orde 2-3 sizes according to the thigh measurements and figure out what size is best. basically know that if the thighs fit comfortably from the start, those are the ones you should stick with (i've seen plenty of people mention waist stretching anywhere from 1-3")

Are there any other sites aside from Context and APC's official site that have smaller PS's in stock (27 and below) and that ship to the U.S.?

And is there a reason that (at least, from what I've read) that nobody actually orders from APC's site?



Also, how long is the inseam on size 27's and below? And does trying a pair on count as having it been worn (in the case of returns)?

Sorry for all the questions. >.>

I just ordered stuff from Barney's warehouse... They have size 27 white ps, not sure what else.

bik, take one measurement around where you plan to wear the pants on your waist, hips whatever, just figure out where the waistline of the pants will sit. Giving us random waist/hips measurements of your general body size and proportions is totally useless and irrelevant. I do think max's recommendation will be too small for you though.

Hi all,

I just bought a new pair of APC NS from a local botique here in the city.  This is my second pair, a size 30 after being frustrated with my 29's waist width being just too narrow for me.  I gave the 29's a good few months with plenty of stretching but felt I would be happier with a 30.  I usually wear a 32 in other denim.

 

After a few wears I am concerned the 30's are just too big...  thoughts?  I am an athletic build so I'm inclined to wear these over the 29's, but still unsure..
