But I have gotten some advice to just go 1 size above my NS size. Anyone want to chime in with their advice?
I am also 31 Nudie RRDS and 32 Nudie SJDBC.
I wear a 32 in APC NS's. They were extremely tight when I got them, however the good amount of stretching combined with my shedding a few pounds has resulted in a perfect fit for me. Actually the waist is a little too big now and I could admittedly probably go down one size, but otherwise I love them.
I ordered a pair of the 5010's in a 33 recently and they were pretty much painted on. I realize they would have stretched some, but I didn't anticipate it being enough from how tight they were. The waist I could get buttoned up, but the thighs were just way too tight. I have since returned them and have asked for a 33 in the 5507's in return. From what I read, the 5507 cut is much closer to that of APC NS. I kinda forced myself to get the 5010's since they seemed to be more popular instead of paying attention to what would have probably fit me better.
For reference, I'm 6'0 and just under 185 lbs - athletic build.
