    he is right about the rescue. people act like they are huge and baggy when they actually look really good on someone with a larger frame. if your legs have a natural taper rom top to bottom you dont need your jeans to do the same. a straight leg will almost always look more proportional.

    Great advice, Rosenberg! Thanks!

    Are they Black APC NS raw? Do they stretch as much as the Indigos? Should I size the same for both? I just want a really nice pair of dark/black jeans, so if anyone has any general recommendations, I'd really appreciate it.

    My black APCs stretched much less than my indigos. Note that my black NS was also one size smaller than my indigos.

    Other factors:
    I've worn the black pair many times more, but there were two times when I wore the indigo pair where I was working retail so there was a LOT of bending and such; thigh stretch was to be expected


    Edit:
    And yes they're raw; just not selvedge if I'm not mistaken.

    So as I got a little frustrated with the fit of my tagged 30 NS, I decided to wash them. Will they still stretch as much as they wouldve without the wash? The waist and everything is ok but when i sit down the thighs get pretty tight. Also, i noticed the seam next to the button fly seems to have popped, can a tailor easily repair this?

    They will stretch whether you wash or not. They will just be a bit tighter for a while.

    so how long does it actually take to fully stretch? I'm getting a little frustrated with these and the seam right by the button fly has popped already

    Question regarding the Petite Standard. Does anyone have experience with this cut? How do they really fit, etc? I'm not looking for "between NC and NS". Which are they closer to? I've had both NS (way too baggy for me) and NC (slightly too tight). Is the PS the cut for me or am I just barking up the wrong tree with APC? How will the rise affect their wearability for me?

    anyone?


    I bought them from the APC store in Soho yesterday. Or alternatively, you can order them from the APC website...

    Shocking, right

    I know this is prob bothersome to some, but I can't seem to find a consensus on sizing and fit for the Rescue vs the New Standard. I am a 29 in Levis 514, and dont want to go skinnier. Any advice whether to get NS or the Rescue? And maybe which size I would be? I can't find a 27 waist anywhere either

    thanks in advance

    Get the New Standard. Rescue is for old, fat men.

    Ive been searching for an answer but I cannot seem to find one; do I need to soak before I get my NS hemmed?

    God no. They shrink centimeters at most.
