    * 100% cotton selvage denim
    * Wash: Raw Indigo

    * 35" actual waistband
    * 36" inseam
    * 10" front rise
    * 14.5" back rise
    * 36" inseam
    * 19.5" at the knee
    * 18" at the leg opening

    For a size 31 APC at online store...

    My objective measurments:

    * 100% Human Skin
    * Wash: Clean

    * 32" actual waist (Skintight)
    * 37" inseam
    * 10" front rise (Match)
    * 14.5" back rise (Match)
    * 37" inseam
    * 19.5" at the knee (Match, not skin tight I added inches to be loose.)
    * 18" at the leg opening (Omg the problem, I need it go over my shoe, would this be enough?)

    I like a loose fit, not baggy though, I'm 6'6" tall so.. would they fit on APC Size 31 =)?

    So, 2" down from my navel I measure 31" around. This means I should order a 29 in New Standards to get a skinny but not painted on fit after stretching, correct?

    Honestly, i don't think i've ever really seen any painted on after stretching. Even people who sized down 3 have them look pretty similar after stretching. The more you push the denim the more they'll stretch, the less you do, the less they'll stretch. Sizing down 1 really isn't even sizing down since the waist is really off. Buying 2 sizes down would make them fit normal i'd say. When i tried them on, i was easily able to button em' up after sizing down 2, and a more difficult but not impossible time sizing down 3.

    I'd say measure a pair of jeans that fit you in the waist and find out. If wearing a size 32 in say levis fit you snug around the waist, get a 30 in apc ns.

    I recently purchased a pair of size 28 STANDARD jeans from APC (with an approximately half inch higher rise than the New Standards), and they are super TIGHT. I can button them all the way up, but only when worn up at my actual waist, and it's nearly painful.

    I'm going to sell them, in order to facilitate my purchase of some New Standards instead. Now, is there any difference between listed and actual waist size when comparing the standard to the new standard? Or do they both have the same listed/actual size ratio?

    I ask because jeans with a lower rise generally have a bigger actual waist size...

    Help me out here guys, need to figure out what size is right for me :/

    I have a true 31.5" waist, I got a 29 in the NS and Hipster..fits fine. Nothing nut-crushing or hip-bruising, just the way I like it.

    see knucks, that's what confuses me, cause it sounds like i should be wearing a 28 new standard (or even 27, since my real waist is size 29, but i wear jeans at the hips so...)

    but in the standards i got, the 28 is an ACTUAL 28, so there's an obvious discrepency between standards and new standards that nobody is telling me about

    curiouscharles: If you wear a 30 in Nudie you should be a 28 in the New Standard. The others must be sized differently. now for my question: is there any difference between the "Original Standard" and the "Standard"? Mauro says he carries both, which confuses me to no end [​IMG] If I'm a size 29 in the New Standard, what size should I go for with either of the above?

    I want a pair of New Standards that when worn snug, stretch to 15 inches max.
    What size should i get?

    Blee017 said that his 28 stretched to 15.5inches after a week and to 15 inches after a hot wash and high dry. I'm thinking i should get a 26 or 27. Any help would be appriciated

    Thanks in advance!

    hey could anyone compare the apc new standard raw sizing to apc new standard brushed cotton pants? i've heard they run true so would a 28 in raw NS be equivalent to a 30 in NS pants?

    Ok i've read thru 20 pages and still havent got much of a definitive answer haha.

    Basically, I'm looking for a semi baggy fit, i'm a size 32.

    So what size in the rescues should i get? i was thinking about a 31.

    My thighs are quite large due to a bit of weight training, I've got a pair of jeans that are 12.5 inches across on the thigh from the groin. They are quite low rise jeans tho, and i'm a bit over the showing my underware unless i have a long shirt on haha. They are also quite fitted around the thigh, so would prefer something around 13 inches around the thigh, without falling off my waist.

    Size recommendations?

    Other jean recommendations?
    Was looking at imperial kings, or nudie RR's.
