Maniak90: I would look further than APC... It really isnt made for larger guys in my experience.. I would go with a brand like Levis to be honest.

Hell, I give props to the guy for posting those photos as humorous as they may be.
to be honest, I would imagine he should get some good fit suggestions from such revealing pics.

I just hope no NAMBLA members get wind of it and start hanging around the forum

Maniak, you could have just measured your thigh. From the pics (sometimes can be deceiving), you should not bother with APC jeans. You will probably find them uncomfortable.

Astronaut - I think the NCs look fine. If anything they look a bit loose, given they will stetch more.

jjjay23 - The NC seems skinnier than 511s, and more tapered. 511s not such a good comparative though cos there's lots of variation within different washes of 511.

I don't feel they are a good cut for me, but am gonna try and keep them as a project. I am going to try and use them around the house for yardwork for a while to achieve some of that famous APC stretch......Just don't know what to expect in the thighs, which is where they are such a killer. I would be amazed to see them stretch to the point that they are a good fit, but am going to give it a try.

I'm looking to purchase my first pair of nice jeans (usually just wear what i've been given).

I am into weightlifting so my thighs and glutes (ass) have developed a lot (partly because they started off big anyway), so i find it annoying how most jeans are really tight in those areas, while hanging loose at the waist and all baggy around my calves (my calves are also disproportionately small).

Here are some photos of me in the only pair of jeans that "somewhat" fit me.

(Last two pics are me just in boxers... in case you guys needed to see my tree trunk thighs for comparison.... let me know if it disturbs you and you want me to remove it lol). The jeans are size 34 and as you can see, theres a lot of room on my waist but its pretty damn tight around my thighs. It's hard to sit down with these jeans, nor can i fit much in my pockets. When i do try to sit down, the back of the jeans hangs / drops down.

I've asked for some help on the jeans sticky thread but also did some searching around. It seems like APC Rescues or APC NS might be good for me. What do you guys think? What are the differences between the two and are they recommended for my body type? How would i go about sizing as well.

Best post on SF.

Ever.

i have both. i wear a size 31 in all "modern" (vanity sized) jeans, such as Nudie, H&M etc. i wear a size 31 dior mij 19cm, fits perfectly and always has. i was fooled by the internets to size down for the apc and got a 30. too tight in the waist and it doesn't stretch at all, pretty much. got to give it away. so if you want one i'd advice you to get the same size as everything else you think fit you. look-wise, i think that nothing looks as good as the dior mij 19cm, and from now on it's the only jean i'll ever buy and wear until they go out of production. :P

The dior's fit much much better in the ass with the darting. But what I really want is actually something that is just slightly slightly less slim as the dior 19cm's =/.

PS should work well for you then. A lot less expensive than Diors too!

if you're looking for something less slim and comparing to the dior 19cm, i wouldn't go for the apc ps. its about the same, if not slimmer. atleast from the knee down. you could always look up measurements online. i'm lazy. edit: PS. i have a size 30 apc ps i need to get rid of, if thats your size. worn for 2 days then i gave up. too small.
