    I was half joking but honestly if it were me I would sell them and grab another pair... once the denim is machine washed and dried I am pretty sure you are not going to get the same fading and distressing as you would had you just worn them for months without washing (with an occasional soak), they are still gonna fade but I dont think as dramatic

    They'll be fine Stylish Pilot's got good advice, they're certainly not ruined. Taking a $80 or more loss on selling the jeans, then having to buy a whole another pair seems pretty impractical and expensive, unless you've got money sprouting out your ass.

    Gang,

    I am looking for the 'older' APC tennis shoes, not the new ones for the winter. I think they are the spring/summer ones. They look very like Vans, but better. Here they are.

    Any ideas where I might find them? It must be on line, as I'm in Australia.

    I'm actually going to the tailor later today to get the waist taken in on my NS. I usually wear a 34 or 33 and bought a 33 in the NS. I like the fit now that they have stretched out, except that I need to take about an inch out of the waist. I'll let you know how it goes.

    how did it go dude?

    LTB: APC Rescue. My waist is size 33, so a 31 would be ideal. Hit me up if you have a pair on the cheap.

    Picking them up tomorrow. I'm a busy college student, so I haven't had a lot of time this week. I'll report back.

    Ok, so I finally picked up some NS. They are very close down the whole leg, I believe this is expected but I want to be sure this is alright before I keep them on and start letting them stretch.

    Just got my NS back from the tailor. Mine are 33s and I usually wear about 34 or 33. He took 1.75 inches out of the waist and they seem to fit great. Now I feel that I maybe could have sized down one more, but there's always next time. I might do another soak some time soon just to get them feeling snug again.

    Any pics? I assume he took about 0.37 on both sides? Would be pretty strange for your backpockets though.

    I was just measuring my NS's and my Rescues, I am looking to grab some Nudie NS's and I thought the fit would be on the same line as the APC Ns but after comparing measurments a 34x34 Nudie SJ and a 32/31 Rescue measure pretty much exactly the same (they seem to be the same cut).... does anyone have both that they could compare the fit?

    Sorry I don't have a digital camera. I didn't even ask how he did, but the back pockets feel no different than usual, so that's probably what he did.
