If your thighs can handle the NS in size 30 I'd say go with the 30's though

hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could tell me the difference between:
"women's overdyed black narrow jeans" and "overdyed black new standard jeans"

from what Im guessing.. the women's is just a lower rise? I want a pair of overdyed black for formal occasions (funerals, work, etc.) I need a 25 and these are my 2 options. Neither are in stock but next time they are maybe I'll grab a pair.

I think the women's are the cure model, and the men's are the new standard model, which means the women's are much more tapered. And yes, expect them to be lower rise as well.

Well, my jeans weren't shipped when I had expected, so I got a chance to change the size up to a 31". Hope these will be a good fit after stretching.

Erm....my inseam size is 31 and a bit. Would 32 be an ok fit?

Your inseam is 31"? If you're buying APC, they all come in standard 36" inseam. If you happen to be talking about waist, then I would go down a size (two, or three: check the first post) because they stretch.

IMO, if you're buying slim jeans, you'll need a longer inseam than usual. In Nudie RRs, I got a 32 length, and even that was a little long. With my NS, I got them hemmed to 33, and that was too short! I like 35 length cause it's just right and I like the bunched up look @ the bottom.

^ agree with that. Are APC cures shorter than NS?

Thinking of getting some APC Rescues,

1. The range has been renamed, are the Rescues the 'Straight jean'?

2. I have quite big thighs/or I don't like my jeans tight around the thigh- not sure which one- haven't got anyone to benchmark against. As a reference point- found the Nudie RR uncomfortable, while my Rogan Orignal Cut (32 waist) are perfect.

Will the Rescues be a good fit for me?
and what waist size should I go for? 30?

3. Probably going to order online- last time I checked Selfridges (few weeks ago, they didn't have any APC) and when I went to Liberty in early Jan they only had enormous waist sizes. Anywhere else in London with good stock of APC?

I also have larger thighs (gosh, feel like a woman saying that!) from years of cycling, and the NS in a waist size smaller than what I normally wear posed the problem of extreme tightness in the thighs. They looked as if they were painted on. I think you should definitely find somewhere to try them on.

Ok, I'll have a bit of a dig around on Monday. Thanks.

I have a question of the fit of APC New Standards dry denim.

I typically wear a 32x34 in most jeans (Ernest Sewn, Diesel, Seven), but tried on some NS' today, and am debating between a 30 or a 31.

The 31 is more comfortable through the legs, and I can actually fit my hands in the pockets; but the waist is a bit big. I'm worried that #1. they're going to be uncomfortable to wear, because even while just trying them on, they were riding up on me, and #2 as the stretch out, they'll be falling off my waist.

The 30 is tight... I mean, I can button them without a problem, but the waist doesn't leave much room for shrinkage (or lunch), and the legs are a bit tighter then I'm used to.

Are the 31's going to stretch out, and/or become more comfortable to wear? Are the 30's going to shrink to the point where I can't wear them?
Do I hold off and wait till I'm back in NYC or somewhere that I can check out Nudies?

The waist on the 30s will stretch, probably to the point that they'll be hanging off your hips. So will the thighs and knees, and basically anywhere that starts off tight or where there's any pressure against the denim. If the thighs are tight now, they'll be fitted but a little loose after you've worn them for a while. Generally, though, the leg silhouette won't change too tremendously, so the question is whether you're happy with how the legs *look* right now, realizing that they will stretch enough so that they'll probably *feel* fairly comfortable in just a short while. If the 31s are already a little loose in the waist, I'd probably steer clear unless you want them to really hang off the hips. After a couple weeks, you'll probably need a belt to keep them from falling right off. This is fine if you want to wear them this way--I think LA Guy wears his New Standards like this, making it a loose-fit jean. As for shrinking, they'll shrink back down a little after washing, but a) they won't shrink (in the waist/thighs) any smaller than they already are; and b) they'll stretch right back out again in short order. Probably even quicker than they did the first time. Plus, you can stretch the waist while wet just like you can stretch the inseam (though to a lesser degree), if you're worried about them tightening up too much. My vote is for the 30s, unless you really don't like the leg silhouette.
