I'm pretty sure most sizes will be gone by then. Private codes for TBS have already gone out.

I'm looking for APC on sale too.
post #11901 of 12922
I'm about to buy a pair of APC "Loose-fit trousers." How loose is the fit? I want something relatively slim ... but not too slim at all. Buying a pair of chinos. I just don't want them to look like I'm tryna look like I'm chilling on the cape, which I feel like is a very real problem when it comes to buying "loose-fit" chinos. Any feedback is appreciated.

So how badly does the indigo stain your shirts and shoes? About how long before the indigo stops staining?

And does cuffing them prevent staining on your shoes (dumb question, I know)?

Raw in the rain I would say quite a bit, but nothing that wont come out and bleeding stops after being washed

No.

They stained my white Chucks even though I never wore them in rain. I would wear them with shoes you don't care about for the break in stage.

Alright, thanks for the replies, guys.


Anyway, my tagged 28 PS came in today (I'm 5'8 and ~123 lbs. if it matters):

Now I've read that being able to button them all the way up new is usually a sign of not having sized down enough. I've also read that if they fit perfectly when new, that they'll just stretch out enormously and it won't work out in the long run.

Are APC's stretching ability largely exaggerated, or should I just get some 27's?


Right now, they were a little tight in the top block, but nothing that really bothered me. They were also a little roomy in the thighs, but that's probably because I'm too short for the taper to really work out?

I agree. For what it's worth, I'm 5'11", 150 lbs and I wear a 26 new standard. I also have a 27 but wear the 26 far more often because the fit is better.

post #11908 of 12922

what on earth? i'm 150lb and wear a size 30, granted i'm 2 inches shorter that is ridiculous

post #11909 of 12922
gong what happened?
post #11910 of 12922
Thanks for the replies guys.


So I ended up sizing down two to a 26 actually:















And I did try on a 27, but I didn't really pay much attention since it was hot in San Francisco (and I wanted to get out of the store quickly) and I instantly dismissed them since I was able to button them all the way up (I don't know why I was so bent on not being able to button them up; is this even a thing? i.e. not being able to button them up = you having sized correctly?).

So I ended up with the 26, and as you can see, I can only button up the first two. The thighs are also super tight and I feel restricted. It's also riding up my crotch uncomfortably.


Now I'm hesitant about keeping them because:

- Do APC's really stretch that much? I'm kind of regretting the 26's and thinking that I'll go with the 27's, but at the same time, I'm a total newbie, so what would I know?

- I was actually planning on starting weight lifting this summer (as you can see by the SS book, lol). I'm not trying to get big at all (just slight definition), but will my calves and thighs become too big for the pants (since they're already skin-tight as is)?



I feel like such a dick to the store for trying on all these fresh pairs just to find out that they're not working out. frown.gif
