I'm interested in switching it up to something more tapered that gets skinnier at the leg opening BUT I don't want a lower rise, I like the rise of the Rescue very much as I'm not a slim guy. So I'm thinking of going with the New Standards which I read are more tapered at the leg but maintain a regular rise. Is this correct? Also very important, I am a 34 in Rescue but I found they stretched a bit too much in the waist in the end (never washed, never soaked). Should I stick to a 34 NS or drop to a 33 NS since the legs will be different as well? Finally, does ANYONE still do discounts on them? I got my Rescues for like $125 shipped back in the day but now its $155-165 + shipping :/ I know of the new APC rules but if anyone wants to PM me with a hint or two, thanks! Even if someone can suggest another brand of jeans that may fit how I want them in the same price range? I really want to go with some black coated Slim Jims but Im pretty sure the rise will be too low for my wonderful gut lol
I would say that NS in 33 would probably end up being right if your Rescues stretched out more than you would have liked But given that you ride a motorcycle, you should look into Iron Hearts; they're made by motorcycle enthusiasts and they would definitely be much more suiting, and protective, when riding a bike. They also have some pretty flattering cuts that would be up your alley.
