Might want to give a price range. an 10.5-11" is right for tucking without going into dad jeans territory. Judging by how you word your question and give measurements, APC NS might not be conservative enough for you.

I believe it depends on where they were made and which particular version you're talking about. I know some size down one or two but you might want to ask in the Dior thread with which specific model you're looking at.

Search here or google fit pics of either fit and see which works best for you. Or measure your jeans now and adjust them to compare with APC measurements.

Where is the Dior Homme thread? I searched and didn't see one. Is there a name I'm missing (I tried official dior homme thread, etc.). Thx!

Should be a couple of threads. If not, make one. You're more likely to grab specific attention as well as help others answer the same question you have in the future.

Thanks, those seem to have an 8" opening, any ideas for say a 8.5 - 9. What's a good source with various measurements?

Guess I was right about not being conservative enough.

You need to shoot us a price range. APC makes a more relaxed cut (Rescue) but you honestly have far better options out there.

Affiliates like Self Edge, Blue Owl, etc. have measurements of other brands. Once you know what you're looking for, they won't be hard to come by.

Thanks, my price range is around $250 . Would getting strech jean help improve fit? Ah yes those sites have tons of brands, a little confusing which ones to go for. I wish they had a guide.

 

For wool dress pants having tried a lot I liked HB Parkway the best, as they are trim not baggy or slim, 11" rise, 26" thigh and 8.5" leg

 

APC Rescue might work, If I get a size "32" which has a real waist of 33", how much would it strech?

Just go with chucks and shirts simple yet elegant try to look for best colors that suites you.

Depends how you carry wearing that jeans. Your the only one who can help it out.

You can do a bit of damage for $250. Take a look at these brands that are at the $200 mark: http://www.styleforum.net/t/157881/non-apc-sub-200-raw-selvage-denim-options/0_50

There are quite a few brands that do the "Made in the US with US denim" routine with a fit you're looking for, like Glory (on the cheaper side), Left Field, Imogene & Willie, Tellason, and it goes on if you're looking to investigate.

Two models that come to mind are Levi's (LVC) 1947 or RRL Straight Cut if you're looking for nicer denim.

Don't buy stretch fit jeans. Just don't. Aside from being crap, a crappy cut will be a crappy cut regardless of what kind of denim the jeans have.

If you decide to go the APC route (which I would put towards the bottom of the list of recommendations), you'll want to size down one or two so that the fit is initially snug, but not tight, and stretch out comfortably. If your true waist is 32", I'm not sure how a garment bigger than 32" will stretch. You need tension or pull for something to stretch.

should i soak my wings & horns raw prior to wearing? i've been wearing them for a about a month and a half now and read some stuff about soaking before wearing raw denim.

No offense to previous poster, but there's only so many times one can read the same question before this is the knee jerk reaction.

great, please link me where you've read the answer regarding their denim and soaking because i searched for like an hour and a half. doesn't say anywhere on the tags, soak prior to wearing or sanforized.

First hit

Second hit

Even more abbreviated summation

Unsanforized = Should be soaked before wearing (because they are going to shrink considerably upon contact w/ water)

Sanforized = *Should be soaked before wearing. * denotes optional. (because they won't shrink dramatically either way)

Your W+H are sanforized.
