    @jay687 I would recommend picking up the 30's. I'm a true 32 and I picked up the 29s - love them, but they're more fitting than what you're looking for.

    What would you consider the above pictures? Would that be skinny/slim? I'd say it's really the limit I'd want to go on the slim side and am fine with if they are bigger. If that is what yours fit like, then I'll go 29"... unless yours at 29" are tighter than the pictures I have above... then I'd rather get 30's I guess. Or perhaps you have pics of your 29s? Just to get an idea. Lemme know. Thanks for your replu.
    i was in the same boat as u not sure if 29 or 30 was right for me and, i was gonna buy online until i found a place locally that had them. so i tried on the 29 1st and it fits snug on the waist and through out more of a skinny look. 30 is more like what in ur picture, kinda like a straight slim jeans which are not tight. at the end i bought a 30 which was more comfortable for day to day wear and the store owner tells me that i would just have to wear a belt often so it won't stretch out a lot. hope that helps and good luck with ur purchase. anyways, is it better to soak these jeans before wear so it won't shrink later when i wash them?

    Question: How much can one expect these to stretch out in the thighs and the crotch area, and how long does it take?


    It seems the waistband has stretched out quite a bit (I'm a 28" waist and ordered the NS 26's) but they're still very tight around the thighs. I have about a 19" thigh - not huge but I do leg workouts once a week as part of my weight lifting routine.

    I've been wearing them for about 5 days (no sleeping in them though).

    Still fit a lot slimmer than how I would like - not a skinny jeans guy.

    Otherwise - had them hemmed today, and really like how they turned out. Kept them a little long since it's my first pair of raw denim and I can always have them re-hemmed.

    Where can I buy APC jeans in Orange County, CA?

    Also what size should I be purchasing? I normally wear a size 30 in Guess/Emporio Armani jeans. I measured my waist to be around 32" 2 inches below my navel. 33" if I just had a big meal.

    I'm looking to purchasing slim fighting jeans, which style would that be?


    Ranker go to Barneys Co Op at south coast. Only place in oc that has them in good quantity.Dont waste your time driving around different places to find em The Sales Reps are pretty cool too!

    Im a 32 in most stuff and size to 30.they fit nicely but I bought a 29 also to get a tighter fit.

    Hey guys, need some help for APC NS sizing[​IMG]
    I've got athletic tighs and size 28 fits my tighs in a nice, snug way while size 27 is absolutely painted on. Will the size 27 stretch enough to fit me snugly? I'm worried that even though size 28 fits me well now it will stretch out to much. So guys, size 27 or 28?

    edit:Just to make things clear, Im looking for a slim,snug fit post-stretch.

    My thighs used to be real tight on my NS aswell, after probably 28 days of wearing everyday they were confortable and i could raise my leg pretty easily, could pinch a little bit of fabric off my thigh.

    Hey guys, need some help for APC NS sizing[​IMG]

    If you can fit it now chances are it will stretch to be comfortable. It's quite surprising how much it will stretch, really its up to you, do you want to be able to ride/what ever in them straight away, get the looser ones.

    Thanks [​IMG] Yeah, I know they stretch tons, which is why I think I will get the ones that are painted on rather than the ones that fit snugly.

    I agree that is a great fit. I workout alot too, along with playing hockey every day so i was worried about the leg when I first got them but they will stretch it just takes time. Lunges and squats do help that though. What is that belt? I really like it
