They're also called the A.P.C Petit Standard Leger.


 

 


Thanks for letting us know. I'm not too enthusiastic about the elastane and I'd need some convincing to buy them at retail. :/

I expected not to be able to button them fully to the top due to the sizing down, however I could with not too much tightness. They're moderately snug around the waist, however I can still get two fingers worth of space in the waistband.
I'm fairly happy with the fit all round, but considering these things stretch a fair bit, should i size down further to a 30?

They sound a little big. They're stretch another two fingers, at least. I'd try 30. I have a feeling that might be pushing it in other areas for you though. Keep in mind Petit Standards if the NC don't work out.

Thanks for this! I've found someone with a 30 who's willing to trade, so I figure I should take it. I could take a bit of a hit in the thighs and calfs so hopefully they will work out.

I finally got a pair of New Standards and i found that i only had to size down once. I'm a 33 and I couldn't even button up a 31, so i stuck with the 32. Is sizing down once alright? or are these jeans going to stretch too a point where i can barely fit in them?

I have a 30.5-31 inch true waist. Would I be okay getting a pair of NC in size 28? I'm about 5'10 145 lbs with a moderately athletic build for other references.

And how much are they in the APC store? After deducting the 20% VAT, they come out as 174 incl. shipping from tresbienshop.

TBS with twitter code was $140 shipped. I have no moneys for more jeans but was so close to kopping. Then WW had them for 76 euros but they cancelled my order ffffuuuu.gif

APC raws are not supposed to go on sale. Needsupply with code, TBS with VAT deduct (and twitter code but I don't think it's valid anymore)

Halp? :X

I would think that you should find a pair of size 29's somewhere else instead of settling for something else.

i can only go by my own experience but i was in exactly the same position, sized down to 29 and they were super tight. if that's what you want then you should go for it. ( look back a couple of pages i posted a pic in the 29). i found them a little too painted on, but as i say that's personal preference. i'm a bit too old to pull off that skinny a look.

I didn't think these looked bad at all. But then again, if that's not the look you're going for...

What's your true waist size?
post #8877 of 12829
^ true waist is 32. i wear a size 28 NS, but wanted something a bit more tapered.
i should get my PS30 tomorrow, will post some pics if anyone's interested.

I swear, APC jeans go through the most sizing discussion on this forum.

I size down about 3.5-4 from my true waist size for petit standards, but I go for a look similar to yours in the link above.


I hope the 30's work out.

Anyone know about sizing with NC's I have heard a ton of different things. I am a true waist 30.5-31, would I be okay ordering a size 28 NC, or would they be too painted on looking?

I'm also about 30.5-31 true waist and recently bought the NC in size 28. I've worn them about 7-8 times and they've stretched out maybe 1.5-2 inches, and to be honest I'm hoping they stretch out another inch at the waist because although they're wearable now, they still feel a little tight at the waist and I can't really wear them as low as I'd like. I've got reasonably large thighs too and they fit great at the thighs, I'm just hoping they stretch a tiny bit more at the waist because that'll make them perfect
