Can someone suggest a dry denim that would be slimmer through the leg than a APC NS? I'd consider NC, but was thinking of branching out a bit.

When I sized down 2 sizes, the NS fit pretty well. I'm now just looking for a slimmer fit for a second pair.

Thanks,
Brian

I know you guys probably hate this question, but I absolutely love the fit of my RRDS. It's perfect on me. The biggest factor for me is how they fit in the thighs--I don't have thick thighs, but I'd look pretty ridiculous in slimmer jeans like Dior 19 cm. So I'm somewhere in between. Also, I'm 6'2 with a fairly short torso, if that helps.

So the past three pair of jeans I've tried out have not worked. I tried 31 Samurai 0500XX, and the high rise ends up looking pretty stupid. I don't think repro-looking jeans are for me. Then I tried 30 APC Rescues, and they're too baggy after some stretching. Right now I'm wearing 30 APC New Standards, but I'm not sure what I think of the taper and the thighs are still pretty slim. I know they do stretch though, so I'm giving them time.

Anyone want to give any input? Should I stick with the APC NS for a bit (I've only worn them for a day or two), or are there any other jeans I should try?

Wear the NS for a couple more weeks and the thighs will be fine. Give your eyes a chance to adapt to the taper. Report your findings after the two weeks, and I'm sure guys will have suggestions for you then if you're still unhappy

about to soak my first pair of raw denim and looking for a little guidance:

should i just throw em in the tub, fill it up with hot water, throw a little detergent and let it soak in there for a bit? i wouldn't mind them shrinking a bit (academi relaxed fit). also, should i just let em dry in the sun after? thanks, mainly looking to see how long i should leave them soaking and if there's anything i'm missing here.

You shouldn't be soaking them. Period. They will not shrink.

i figured as much--i kind of wanted to get rid of the stiffness a little bit and lose some of that indigo. will soaking do that? or is the washing machine a better bet?

If you're only trying to get rid of the starch and some indigo then by all means throw them in a tub of water for a bit. They'll still start off as stiff but will turn softer faster than a no-soak. No washing machines.
