They're NS. My true waist is 34" and my normal Levi's size is 32. I went with 30 in these APCs. I also tried on PS in 32 and 31 and I thought the 31 was OK but a bit tight on the thigh for me (which supposedly doesn't stretch).
The NS fits just right on the thigh but I wish they tappered a bit more. What should I tell the tailor if I wanted him to give them a bit more of a taper? I don't think it's common for them to work with jeans around here, so I don't want him to mess them up. Also, should I do that now or after wearing them for a bit?
What worries me a bit is the inseam lenght--you can see it doesn't stack too much. I have a pair of 501STFs and their inseam has shrinked a lot, what can I expect from my NS?
I also don't like the pockets--they're really small! My Nexus 4 barely fits in there.
By the way, I went with APC because those (and Raleigh) were the only raws I could find here in Mexico City (after a brief googling, to be fair). They were mxn$3000 ≈ usd$230. And people say they're overpriced at $185!
