    I don't think so, your jeans are clearly well broken-in (nice whiskers!), and a little loosening around the hip is natural, at least that's what I think.

    Whats the difference between New Cures and Petit Standard?

    New Cure= Levi 510
    Petit Standard= Levie 511?


    New Cures are like the 510 from waist to the around the ankle- where the New Cure flares out. The Petit Standard is like the 511 (rise, thigh) until the knee where it tapers a lot to the ankle.

    I was joking about a post a few pages back, there's no hip flare at all on my jeans.

    Not bad.
    How long did you wait before you washed? and what method did you use?

    This is my first post and I literally made an account here to ask about this haha:

    My APC Petite Standards have ripped on the outside leg seam, and I was just wondering if this has every happened to anyone else? Im assuming the best possible action at this point is to just sew it back up? or should i get my Tailor game on.

    Any affiliates getting these:

    Reporting back, I ended up buying these at Barney's today. They're 5% polyurethane, which may rule them out to some denimheads. I bought a 29, the same size as I'd buy the regular NS in, although all the buttons closed without much pinching. I bought that size anyways because I don't foresee jeans that aren't 100% cotton stretching as much.

    Obviously, they aren't selvage, but unlike other APCs I've seen, these are made in Japan (maybe part of the reason for the higher price).

    I sized down to 31 (true waist around 33.5) on the rescues to match my thighs and calf. My thighs are 22", calfs are 17". i have very large calves and figured I'd need a knee/opening of around 8.75 for denim.

    Just a heads up, Im 6'2, 190lbs, and I workout and have big legs, and I only sized down 2 and I regret it. Rescues strech like mofos, and they are a decently generous cut anyway. I would have gone down 3 if I had my time back.

    I also have big thighs. I have a 31" waist with 23.5" thighs and 16" calves. What size should i get in rescues? Was thinking a 29 to fit my waist but don't know if thighs would fit?

    Are you 31 at the natural waist, or where you wear your jeans? I wear mine on the hip, where I'm about 33in. I bought a 28 and it was definitely the right size.

    Hey, guys, this'll be the first time I'm buying APCs. If I generally wear Levis 505s with a size 30 waist (slimmer sizes, even 501s, dont fit my semimuscular thighs/calves at all), what type/size APCs would you guys recommend?
