Do these fit tighter or looser than regular raw PS?

I don't own raw PS. I went with a 28 in the PS black selvedge; I wear 27 in raw NS if that helps.

For now, they seem a little tighter than the raw indigo ps. The denim definitely has a different feel than the regular raw indigo denim (it almost feel thinner and "crispier"), and for now they definitely feel tighter around the thighs. But keep in mind I have only worn mine for about a day and I am expecting these to stretch out a little after a week or so of wearing. I will give an update once they begin to stretch out a little bit.

I read over on SuFu that the NC is slimmer in the thighs than the PS, but that the PS has a taper past the knee whereas the NC flare slightly.

 

Can this be confirmed?  Can the NC be worn almost as slim as PS if you size down enough?

Correct. PS tapers down strongly with a slightly looser thigh, whilst NC is slim throughout with no taper so it fits more slim on the top but more room on the calf.

I happen to have NS (which is on the market in a size 26 btw), NC and I have some PS on the way. I'm hoping to do a 3-way fit pic with all styles in sz26. And maybe add some dior 19/17.5cm fit pics too, to put all questions to rest. :P

Regarding the NC though, I'm not a fan of the ankle flare. Who's genius idea was that???

EDIT: damn, looks like im repeating myself. sufu/sf/denimblog kinda become a blur after not enough sleep

Of course, I'm coming from Dior 19cm MIJs so I guess its hard to compare but do you guys normally hem that flare? I got some PS on the way so I guess ill see how that goes. And if anyone is intrested I can do a Dior vs APC fit comparison since I have some 19cms, 17.5cms, NC and PS (soon).

Fit comparison with pics if you can would be appreciated.

I don't think theres and actual flare, just that it doesn't really taper down from the knee, so it appears that theres a flare.

I've never tried on NC, but I wonder how people can rock tighter thighs than PS. I had to loosen mine up a bit to get rid of the jeggings feeling. I'm a tad bit athletic so that might have something to do with it.
post #8592 of 12863
maybe you weren't wearing them sagged down enough as the PS has a very low rise. That or your thighs are quite above average in size.

If you look at the leg, the opening is actually just slightly wider than the lower knee when flat. It's bizarre. I'll take measurements.

The NC cut is supposed to have a slight flare...

Just a bit update on the MIJ blacks. I received a disappointing shipment of W+H raws today and I just put the black MIJ back on. I am that happy with my decision to pick up these black NS. I've been wearing them somewhat exclusively around the house and they have stretched to a good fit. My indigo NS are a lot looser than the blacks, and I hope the blacks don't stretch much more. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Is the thigh and rise on New Cures the same on New Standards? New Cures just taper more? I'm thinking of getting the same size New Cures as my New Standards.. I just want something with a smaller leg opening on some days
