    what would you consider a good deal for NS which have been worn a few times and soaked once?

    I think the guy that runs it is a regular on this site? or something like that.

    noob ? alert

    how long do new standards take to start to lose their stiffness? these things are way stiffer/more starched than my nudie slim jims were when i first got them. i wore my apcs this weekend but can still practically stand on their own.


    Somewhere between 2 weeks to 2 months depending on how hard you wear them. I've had mine for a month now and they are as stiff as the day I got them................................... of course I did starch them hard once after a rainy day.

    you could always starch them when you feel like they are getting too soft

    If I take my new standards and roll them up some days and wear them stacking other days will it ruin the stacking eventually?

    i imagine the crease from cuffing them half the time would hinder the process a bit.

    I wear a 29 for Slim Jim which was a really snug fit when it was new. So should I get size 27 or 28 for APC NS? I can actually get a sz 27 for $100 shipped only tried on. But I don't know if that's gonna be TOO tight.

    quick question in regards to sizing

    if I fit best into jeans that have a 31.5 waist size, what size should I get some APC NS? A 29 or a 30? I want them to fit slim along the leg (as I have rather thin calves).

    29. When in between sizes, size down. The jeans WILL stretch.

    If you want them to fit slim, I highly doubt 29 is small enough. I would keep sizing down until they fit slightly slimmer in the leg than you'd like (to account for stretch), and ignore the waist size completely because APCs can stretch up to three inches there. Better yet, go for NCs if you want a slim fit through the calves, as they taper more.
