I'd add the new raw blacks (MIJ) are about $20 more. Well worth it of course. The red selvedge looks great.

My new Black NS are MIM still.

My thighs are 23" at their largest point with a 31 waist, I'm undecided on whether to get the NS or PS since I want a tapered cut, how should I size? A 30 in PS has a 11' thigh, would that stretch 1/2 an inch to accommodate my thigh or is that too much of a stretch?

Well follow up questions, Do they stretch the same as the Indigo PS?

any recommendations as to where to buy?

back when I weighed a bit more than I do now, i had a pair of 31 PS, my thighs were about 23", possibly closer to 24", they fit like this:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
474

and they weren't painfully tight in the thigh when they were new if i remember correctly. I think i could have probably went down to a 30 no problem, but I chose the 31 in the end because I didn't want skin-tight calves.

ymmv

I think I'd go with a 31, that looks like a pretty slim fit.

Hey,
does anybody know where i could get a slightly used apc petit standard in black (sz. 28): http://www.apc.fr/wwuk/denim/jeans/petit-standard-jeans_pFV454860/colour-washed-black_dBA00003082-BV00261472.html

You'll probably have some luck on superfuture's B&S, if not presently, I'm sure a pair will turn up in short time. Smaller sizes are ubiquitous there.

How do I size in the non-raw APC denim?

post #9955 of 12780
anyone know if apc still has a trade in program?

I heard that trading your old pair in can get you up to 50% off a new pair.

I just got the MIJ blacks from TBS. Looks like the sizing isn't new since my 28's measure 30". Not sure if I should keep them or not since I normally wear 27s.

Yo!

 

I'm planning to buy a new pair of jeans soon and I'm pretty sure I want some APCs. My "true waist" -- as measured two inches down from the navel like LA Guy said on the first page of the thread -- is about 30 inches. I like the fit after all the stretching and shrinking and such to be sort of  tightish so, in accordance with the info in the OP, I was planning to size down two and buy a pair of 28 inch waist Petit Standards. Sound good? Anyone have any final comments/tips/info before I buy?

 

Also, I know that the size numbers don't always match up with the waist size (size 28 isn't necessarily 28 inch, 29 isn't necessarily 29 inch, etc.) and some sites seem to be kind of lacking in the necessary info. Unfortunately, the size guide on APC's site seems to be pretty useless. Any good sites to buy from so I can make sure I'm buying the right size?

 

Thanks!
