I guess I might have sized down too much. I guess I was really pushing for a slim look with the NS over baggy.

You should just go with the petit standard or new cures....she basically sewed it shut.....over and over again on the outside of the button hole where it's ripping. It didn't' look great, but I imagine you could get someone to redo the button hole. For what it's worth, I've never had what i'd consider in my opinion to be a good tailor. I've actually pretty much stopped messing with them all together.

Can anyone comment on the sizing of New cure and Petit standard bought recently from Context clothing? Their sizing chart was updated, but I'm wondering if it's still wrong...

Also does NeedSupply have the same sizing?

Anyone have a pair of NS in 31 they're looking to get rid of?
post #9862 of 13092

I've been wearing my P.S for about 14 months now and i've hand washed them 3 times and machine washed once. Each time I wash, the honeycombs on the back of my knee start somewhere new and do not reset to their original creases. So, after a few washes, my honeycombs end up looking like this (not my pair, but similar honeycombs):




I just sent off the pair to denim therapy to get my crotch fixed and I ended up ordering a new pair from context today. I was wondering if anyone had any tips to get the honeycombs to end up looking like this instead (picture below). This will be my goal for this new pair I will be receiving.

Going to guess they don't stretch? Don't have much experience with non-raw APC jeans

So I'm guessing it's impossible to find those APC mijs black in PS 27/28 or NS 26/27 right?
post #9870 of 13092
^ Both except PS in 28: NS, PS

TBS shows how slim they fit compared to the regular raw versions. I'm tired of wearing raw denim, and might get another pair of these to keep in my closet in case APC stops making them again.
