    I'm 34.5" around my waist, 2" below my naval. What size A.P.C. NS's should I get? 30 or 31. I want a fitted fit thru the butt and thighs after they stretch, not relaxed fit, not tight.

    You're never going to fill those jeans by working out and they look pretty bad.

    I don't think they look too bad if I wear them like they are in that first photo. Also, the only thing I don't like about the fit is the calf area, below the knee, and I can certainly improve that in a couple months time via working out.

    rjakapeanut, you probably should have gone with New Cures.

    you want the jeans skinnier? mmm.

    those are a 27", ill get my measurements up in a bit.

    the second pic really throws off the look, they all ruffled up in the knee so it looks terrible.

    The first picture would look bad too if you didn't take such a shitty picture. The New Standard isn't the cut for you; you should get a new cure or a petit standard.

    I wear 33's in Earnest Sewn's.

    I'll do the work to break in the A.P.C.'s. It'll be fun from the sounds of it.

    LOL you'll put on like, at most, 4 pounds of muscle. If that. Throw the jeans on the B&S forum before wearing them any more, and get some cash for New Cures.

    ^ gotta agree with breakz on this one. You'd have to put on around 30lbs to grow your quads enought to fill those in. That'll take, what, a year or more? My APC were snug in the top block through the knees when I got them, and I had to suck my gut in a bit to button the top button. Now they have stretched and look pretty good. [​IMG]

    I'm still looking for more opinions. I have a 34.5" measured waist 2" below my naval. I want a fitted fit after stretching. Not loose/baggy, not super skin tight, just fitted to my body.

    So I think 30 or 31. What do the experts say?

    ~37.5"

    I'm pretty similar on measurement, quite tall and with proportionally large thighs. I wear a 32 in Rescues and it's a fitted look. I wouldn't go below 32 on NS and even 33 might be pretty tight depending on leg size.

    Anyone have the problem of the leg seam of their APC's being crooked? The seam that runs down the right leg is seriously crooked compare to the left. It looks like the right leg is almost twisted to the left when I'm wearing them. I already had these hemmed and didn't notice it because I tried them on quickly and was mostly concerned about the waist fitting.

    Twist. Happens a lot, though I'm used to seeing/hearing about it after significant wear or washing and drying. My right leg is twisted (to the left) more than the left leg. Search Superfuture for some info on it.
