It's also to account for stretching.  I've been burned before by that.  It's denim, not wool.  Just because the waist starts at 32 doesn't mean it's going to stay there.

I'm a skinny guy, but in these jeans I tend to feel skinnier than I actually look.

Yeah, I sized down the same way I always do and they are still uber tight in the waist after having them 2 years.

Anyone tried the white Petit Standards?

Bumping this question...

you don't trust contextclothing's measurements?

Basically nc are tighter on the thigh then get looser on the leg while ps is the opposite. I just buy nc and get them tapered by a tailor because the flare can be a little much if your not planning on cuffing them or wearing boots.

Hey guys so the inseam on my PNS is too long. I need to get it hemmed, but before I hem them should I wash or soak them once? I want to wear them perfect length uncuffed.

 

Any tips?

Whats your usual inseam? Don't wash or soak if you MUST get them hemmed just take them into a tailor although I rather prefer cuffing or just leaving them stacked but then again I have a 32-33 inseam.

I asked the folks at the APC store about this and they suggested waiting until after a soak and/or wash to get them hemmed. They're likely to shrink some so it might be tough to estimate the "perfect" length before shrinkage.

I usually buy 30 inseam but even then it is still a little too long and I cuff. I'm 5'6" and wear mostly chinos anyways so the cuffing looks fine.

This is what I'm worried about. Guess I get some Woolite and do a soak? Or should I wait and wear them for a while because a soak would destroy opportunity for a decent fade?

A soak wouldn't destroy an opportunity for a fade. If anything it loosens the fabric enough to get broken down dye-wise...
I'd soak then wait a bit before hemming.

A soak it is then! Then I guess I wear them for a while, then get them hemmed.
