post #9016 of 12799
Got APC NS sz 29 for about a month or so now.
They are a bit too loose from the knee down, for me anyways. shog[1].gif
Is it possible to be taken in by a tailor, and more importantly how does that work for raw denim? Does it screw up the fading?
Also, should it be done before or after the first wash?

Or perhaps I should just try to sell them and get PS...

ns is looser than ps and nc to begin with. and lol, no , it wont affect the fading process . and no, why would you wash it? if you must, just give it a soak.

and you have to post fit pics so we know if you must change fit or size down etc..

Can anyone tell me how a pair of new standards and rescues will fit compared to RRL slim bootcuts? I'm looking for something a little looser and with a higher rise.

I wear 29-30 in April 77 joey so if I wanted PS with a final stretch of around 31" I'd need 27, correct? may pull the trigger on a pair from need supply by the 20th since they have free shipping

It sounds like you should try and go for a PS if the jeans are still fairly new/resalable. The fit is similar to NS with lower rise, and slimmer from the knee down if I understand correctly. I wouldn't get it altered just to look like PS.

A couple questions...

- Is a soak necessary before wearing? I have been wearing my NS for about 3 months now and they have yet to touch water...
- Will I get mediocre looking fades if I wear the APCs when I'm lounging around/being lazy versus out & about? As of right now I spend a lot of time sitting down and in front of the comp...

1.No soak necessary.
2. Cmon dude, it'll just fade more slowly without hard wear. I've had mine for about 6 months, regular soft wear and the fades aren't pronounced. After a wash it'll probably come through more.

I bought a light washed NS this summer sized one up (34, I was a 33 raw NS at the time) and couldn't even get past my calves. Not sure if that was for the specific model or across the board.

people who've had the MIJ black NS/PS, any comments on the stretching thus far?
post #9026 of 12799
A little less than the regular raw PS. At least on mine.

2 months in on mine. They've stretched out a bit, and they fit quite nice now. They are still a lot slimmer than the same size NS I have but I haven't been wearing these religiously. Creasing and combs formed a lot nicer on these than the regular indigos, but I haven't noticed any fading at the same time.

Fit on the 28 PS. Much better than the 27s I posted a few pages back, I think. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Those look good ^

How the hell do people size down like 4 on PS's? I sized down 1 for my 29 PS's and they're jegging tight on my calves
