Question: Why do you guys try to do all the hard work/guess work of buying a smaller size, suffering for 3 weeks in stretching it etc etc instead of just buying TTS then tailoring them after the stretch?

Having a tailor do anything to jeans other than hem them is a risky endeavor.

Why is this? I'm asking because I've had my tailor alter pants, be it taper thighs or take in seat of wool and tweed pants that are much heavier and thicker than my APC jeans. It shouldn't be an issue in my mind.

My PS sz34 from TBS arrived today, they're comfy out of the box. I'm wondering if I should be sizing down 1 or 2? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm six-two and measure just under 35.5" at my hips (where I wear my jeans), these PS measure ~36" at the waist (aligned). FYI my thighs are just over 23".

Same... I've had my tailor slim down legs and adjust the seat of my raw denim RRLs (not as stiff) a few times before without issue. 

 

Is the stiffness of the APCs just on another level to work with?

 

I guess I'll find out... I bought a 31 but could have sized down to a 30 (very uncomfortable but could button)... just didn't think I'd bother to wear them 10-20 times to stretch them if they were that uncomfortable.

is the APC NS black raw/selvage or is it just selvage, i've had these for a few months and they feel selvage rather than both

its these http://www.tresbienshop.com/brand/apc/new-standard-black-1 and i know they say raw, but they dont feel like me other raw jeans, they are kind of smoother and feel better than other jeans

^ i think it's just selvedge--not raw.

They don't look very good, especially the knee down. Yeah they'll eventually settle, but going by the measurements and the fact that they commonly stretch up to 2 inches, you should size down.

I just got these and buttoned them easily and the waist has some wiggle room, this is a size 30, should I return for a 29? APC PS.

Looks like you should size down 1 or 2. They look way too loose

@ gong

 

In the experience with my PS, if there is wiggle room now (unworn), then in maybe even just a month or two you may need a belt just to keep them up! I'd say size down one or even two to compensate for the later stretch.


As I said though, this is just what I experienced with my pair... dunno how others may have differed.

Did the thighs stretch as well? The thighs are my concern area as my thigh-to-waist ratio is retarded.

Thanks for the feedback! At first, I thought size down 1, but now I'm deliberating on sizing down 2, dealing with the pain for a week or so, and then spending some time riding my bike to get the thighs to stretch. I have a pair of PRPS raw ramblers in a 34 that were pretty much TTS new. I could only get two buttons done up to start, but slowly (two to three weeks of wear and biking) got them to stretch to a nice fit. I figure a size 32 PS would follow the same path.

Do the NS blacks stretch the same as the raws?
