I exercise and lift weights but not to a point where it's bulging. Waist measurement on the 33 APC NS was great, it's just the thighs, calves feeling a bit tightish. My Nudies felt like that and have stretched out, but I didnt' want somethin similar and what not. I ain't into the slim fit but I despise bagginess too. I was wondering if I should get a 34 NS instead or maybe get a 32/33 Rescue. Anybody with pictures of RESCUE? I love the STRAIGHT LEG look and wear Jordans, Air Maxes primarily. I was hoping the 34 NS would give me more room in my thighs and and calf. But how much inches overall in measurements would the 33 NS (the one I bought) stretch out to? Thanks. guys.
Sounds like you would prefer the APC Rescues, look em up. They are a straight leg (NS are tapered from the knee down) and are generally a looser fit overall. And I'm not so sure you'll be happy with a 33 NS. I have 31 NS (sized down 1 from my original waist size) and they barely stay on without a belt now that they are stretched out. If you sized up 1 then they probably won't stretch as much as there isn't pressure on it, but I think they will still be pretty big in the waist, uncomfortably big. APCs stretch A TON!!!!!!!!

so i've been scouring the thread for like 10 minutes and i figure i may as well just ask-i've had my new standards for a year and have yet to do a wash or a soak. i love the color but am curious to see how much of the wear will come through after a soak. so, recommendations? do i just simply soak them in warm water inside out and then throw them in the dryer? should i just keep with it and forget about washing them? should i throw some detergent in the tub as well?

I like the straight leg look. Resuces seem a tad more on the baggy side to begin with. My thinking is to get straight legs like NS and wear them out so they become more relaxed over time. I might just by my true size.

thanks for the help guys.

so to prevent like enormous amounts of stretching in the waist, i should wear a belt right?

NS aren't straight legs, they're tapered... I think the NS you have are going to stretch out more than enough if you wear them.

Really? Some place sell them as tapered. I do realized that in the same waste measurement seems to be more tapered than the NS. Thanks for the info.

I'm gonna pickup a true size then and see how it is.
Thanks.

thanks in advance.

I would reccomend 31, I have a 33 inch waist and my 31 NS were a little tough to get on and I probably couldn't get 30s on.

just ordered a pair of NS from denimbar

i measured my waist prior to the purchase, and i found out im really a 32.5, almost 32 really. haha, i need to lose my lil gut i develop once in a while. i went with the 30x34, can't wait for 'em to get here! ;-D thanks for all the help guys!

dahveed- New standards are not a skinny cut they more give the illusion of a straight leg with the taper. If you're looking for a skinny fit i'd size down 1 or 2 on the New Cure fit depending on how tight you want it.
post #1480 of 12855
I don't understand why people don't go with the New Cures or Rescues more. People say they want to not size down any in NS or size down tons. APC makes 3 different cuts of jeans for a reason....
post #1481 of 12855
I agree. I love my new cures. If dahvee or someone was wondering, i was wearing new cures sized down about 1-1.5ish in my fit with the white tee 2-3 days ago in the waywt thread. edit: here are my new cures
post #1482 of 12855
I ordered a pair of APC New Standards (size 30), liked the jeans but didnt like the taper in the leg
I am thinking of ordering the Rescue instead.
If order a size 29 will that be too tight?
Im looking for a fit similar to Nudies Average Joe dry heavy (size 32)
Also, is color of rescue different than the new standards?
Thanks

Same denim, same color. And yes, if the 30 NS were the correct size, 29 would be your proper Rescue size.
