    Yes, I did. They were rather tight up top as expected. I know they will stretch at the waist but will they stretch at the tighs too? I'm concerned because it was a little painted on at the tighs but they will stretch to a nice slim fit right?

    EDIT: Would it be safe to say that PS 29 has the same thigh space as NS 28?

    is apc.fr the only place that has current stock of APC NS blacks? i need to size up...mine are too tight


    What size do you need? Remember, they'll stretch nearly a size We have a few left of the black NS at Stel's. According to APC, they will not be doing another run of the black denim any time soon. That could change, though.

    That would be a good estimate. Although I do usually tell people to size down, you may not want them "painted on" either. They'll stretch but you don't want them to start out terribly uncomfortable either.

    Thanks [​IMG] Im kinda stuck between a 29 and 30. The 29s fit great knee downwards but are a tad too tight at the thighs and butt.Will the infamous APC stretch will come to use here?(I need the jeans to stretch at the thighs and butt.) Or should I get a 30 which fit better on the thighs? (I'm afraid that they might stretch out too much, knowing how much APCs stretch)

    They're going to stretch anywhere where there is pressure. That usually means the waist, thighs and butt. Also, the entire jean will soften over time. Without having seeen them on you I would guess the 29 will be ok. But as I said, you don't want to be uncomfortable.

    I guess I'll grab a 29 then. Anyway, I'll just do some squats in them if I need to loosen up the tighs. Thanks,you've been a great help.

    Sounds good to me. Depends on the fit you're going for.

    Hey so I got a pair of NS size 28 around a month ago. They are really tight on me and I'm wondering what I can do since I want to them to loosen up. I know that places like the thighs will natuarally loosen so im not worried about that. Its just the knee down that is very tight, is there ANYTHING that will loosen that up? and not make it look as skinny. Thanks.

    you bought skinny jeans

    they are skinny

    unless there is constant pressure under the knees there is no way to stretch it out that won't make them look fucked up

    Wow, you must have huge calves if NS is tight below the knees.

    To the above poster, no offense, but I thought NS is more of a slim fittting jean and NC are skinny jeans,yeah?

    I'd say the PS is the skinny jean, the NC is just straight up tight.

    The guy either sized down to a size that is probably unsafe... or is just fat. Self introspection should reveal the answer.

    Funny, I thought in terms of "skinny-ness" NC>PS>NS

    Always thought PS is simply a minimized version of NS?
