    I think I am growing emotionally attached to my jeans. I fondly think about all the goods times I've had in them.

    PC Rescue sizing question:
    Context lists the knee measurements on the rescue as follows..
    28 waist: 8.5"
    29 waist: 9.5"
    30 waist: 8.5"

    is this a typo on the 29? why would they taper the knee more for the 28 and 30 and make it more relaxed on the 29?

    Ive finally decided that I'm going to get a pair of APCs but i cant decide on Rescue or NS, I want slim but not too slim and I havent been able to get a good feel of which to get from any pics that i have seen. Which would suit me better?

    if youre looking for something slim youll probably regret getting the rescues. I would suggest getting a pair of NS and not sizing down too heavily. maybe just 1 or 2 sizes....i sized down 3 on my first pair of NS. they fit me fine and i loved them but i often felt they were too slim for what i wanted.

    Agreed. It's hard to get a slim fit out of the Rescue. Go with the NS.

    What's a good store to buy APC New Standards in Manhattan? Online retailers are out of 28 (which I wanna try on before I purchase) and Barney's COOP in Chelsea had only 29 and above. I only briefly went to the APC store in SoHo but it seemed unorganized and overpriced. Any suggestions?

    Will APCs shrink much after the first wash?

    A little but it'll stretch right back out after a few wears.

    Question for those of you with big thighs:

    Trying to decide between New Standards and Rescues.

    I have big thighs from heavy squats/deadlifts. They're about 21" even though I'm naturally 30" inseam or so. My true waist is about a 31".

    Right now I'm trying to decide between a 28" Rescue or 29" NS. I want whichever APC I buy to fit like my RRDS around the hip/crotch/thigh area, which is a 29" that has grown over the past 3 years. Will the NS just be way too uncomfortable?

    P.S= lower rise, more taper; less skinny throughout.
