Hard to say, as both jeans you named are known for being flexible in sizing. Most people size down 2-3 from their true waist for APC NS.

Personally, I would like to get the best bang for the buck and like the look of the APC NS, but am worried about fading. I heard Levi's were a good cheap alternative, but everything on the Levis sight is prefaded looking junk (except the super skinny, which would be too skinny for me). Thanks to everyone for any help you can give.

I'm looking to get a new pair of high quality jeans, pref selvedge in a straight cut. In my closet now fit wise, I really like the way my straight fit J Crew jeans fit as well as my Lee 101B's. I wear a 31 waist in both. Looking for a medium to dark blue. Thoughts? thanks. (Cost wise I'm hoping to keep it below $200)

My Andewhall Grifters finally came! so excited! first thing i noticed was the selvage fly which was pretty cool. Anyhow very satisfy that i got these, although it did take a while to get here

So I think I am about done with my APC NC's, and I want something new, probably $200 to $250, but preferably on the lower side of that. It seems like everyone likes their Ande Whalls, but it seems that their store is closed till June. I was also interested in some of the non-insane Evisu's, I don't reaslly mind back pocket stitching if it isn't super ghetto,(like many Evisu's). I've had bad luck with Nudies in the past, so I want to just stay clear of those. Any other suggestions. (I wear a 32 in my APC's, so hoe will other brands sizes relate?)

^ I'm guessing you like a slim fit ala NC, so in no particular order: KMW Rocker, Imperial Shearer, Crate James/Journal, RRL Slim, W&H slim, Flathead F310.

do you HAVE to soak raw denim before wearing it? just bought a new pair of 50 1 STFs and im thinking about just keeping em unsoaked for a couple months. what do you guys think?

It depends on the denim, but for 501STF yes, you HAVE to soak them first. STF stands for "shrink to fit", meaning that they're unsanforized. If you don't soak them at first, when you finally do soak/wash them they will shrink and all your creases etc. that you've been working on will shift and no longer be in the right place. Some raw jeans come sanforized which basically means "preshrunk", and don't require a soak before wearing.

If they are unsanforized yes you better. or else when you wash it the fit will go to shit.

Anyone have any experience with Surface to Air denim? They look decent, but I don't recall much talk about them.

they're already pretty tight...i know for a fact when i soak them they're gonna be too tight to fully button up...do you guys think they'll stretch back to fitting or no?
the pair i had before is 36 and i'm almost swimming in it now. the new pair is 34 and fits great now but im worried about the post-soak

^ If you can fit into them right now, they should stretch out enough to fit you post-soak, although they'll probably always be fairly snug. If you want to minimize the discomfort of stretching them out, though, you can always just wear them into a bath to shrink them and they won't shrink below your actual waist.
