    ^ Hands? Maybe just one hand? Maybe in the back pocket?

    if anyone is interested, my indigo new standard size 28 measures about 17.25 in the waist, whereas my black ones are a little under 17. all the stretching is out of both of them by this point. the main difference is in teh thighs, with the blacks being significantly narrower. i'm afraid i don't know how to properly measure the thigh. as has been noted, fading on the blacks is nowhere close to those on the indigos. the most i'm getting on the blacks is a little wallet fade, and i've had them in pretty heavy rotation for over a year.

    He means the 31s are going to be huge on him. Which they are.

    From what I was reading it seemed the general advice was to size down 2 for a regular fit, 3 for a slim fit.

    I am planning on bulking so I sized down 2. We'll see, I can aways return it. I will post a fit here for you guys to tell me once it comes. Thanks for the heads up.

    thank you

    i sized down 3 on my last pair (my 3rd one) and the thigh was still baggy as fuck so id say 3 for regular and 4 for slim, waist will be tight but I size jeans to thigh because fits are far different than trousers

    fyi i wear 32 in black ns and I could probably size down to 31 but that would be pushing it

    Is APC ever going to come out with black selvedge denim? Does anyone know why the New Standards in black aren't selvedge? Kind of puzzling...

    Well that certainly could be. I figured he knew what he was getting width-wise, and just wanted to make sure they'd be long enough. FWIW, I sized down four as well, and bought a 28 Rescue. I'm a true 32 waist 33 hip, and the rescue are now quite comfortable, though I don't wear them often enough.

    I find they're good w/less sleek sneakers, as there's a bit more top coverage, so to speak. If I were to wear anything but chucks or sleek boots w/the NS I'd look like I had duck feet.
