I can't believe I'm in this thread with APC sizing questions but I need to replace my 5 year old NS. When did sizing change and what specifically happened? I can try on in person so can I still use the best rule of thumb which is "as tight as you can but still button" which for me is 2 down from my usual or actual size?

you don;t need to worry about this new sizing if you can try them on. the new sizing just means they're less vanity-sized now (correct me if i'm wrong) but they should stretch the same.

I think overall fit of the NS has changed a bit too - new NS 28 that I tried on were wider in the calves and had a wider hem than a NS 28 from three years ago.

the inseams are like 2 inches shorter than they used to be, too, in the smaller sizes

Have some APC New Cures that I had to wash to early so I'm thinking of dying them black.

 

Would this be effective as they're already blue.

 

Thanks

Dumb question but I wear 31 NS comfortably, I should be getting the same size for all other models right?

I'm assuming you started off with ns cause of your build, right?

why are you venturing off to the other cuts if they might not flatter your body as well?

Started off with NS to be "safe" as they were the most general looking and also my first pair of raws. Looking to get a pair of skinnier jeans for variety. I've a pretty standard body type.

I've been wearing apc ps for a while now, and I was looking at the washed ps model. What i wondering is how do they fit compared to the raw? Size up or size down? Btw I wear a 27.
thanks in advance

 They won't stretch as much as the raws. I'd go up to a 28 if I were you (or maybe even a 29 depending on how much the 27s stretched).

Ok, I may just order the 27 off nordstrom and if they don't fit exchange for a 28, because the 27 didn't stretch all that much. Thanks and repped

Sorry if this is old news but I haven't been on here in ages. I just got an email from APC saying that they have discontinued the Rescue model?

WTF is that about? They were the last "proper" (in my eyes anyway) fitting jeans. I'm not exactly a big guy but even New Standards look stupid as f**k on me.

I'm truly pissed at this. Has anyone any ideas of anything similar? I know the Samurai 5000VX (?) are a bit more relaxed but I don't have that kind of doe to drop.

also lots of shirts / jackets / shorts but i did not have time to go through these properly.

thanks for the heads up.

Should I be hemming my jeans before the fades start to come in? If I decided to hem later, wouldn't the knee fades be off from where my knees actually are.

Also, would a soak mess with the fadez later or is that just with a wash?

I was thinking about hemming from 34" to 30" which would be my natural inseam length.
post #12690 of 12870

Although I never measured, I'd say my APC PNS's shrank about an inch in inseam length after the first soak. In fact, they shrank everywhere and now fit like skinny jeans whereas before the soak they fit in between slim and skinny. They never stretched back out.
