    cross post from thrift store bragging thread...

    Today, a rare denim find: APC New Standards in size 30 that appear to have been soaked only once and worn none at all...for $12 and change.[​IMG]

    I take 30 when I'm in shape and a 31 when I'm not (right now I'm not) so I will probably wear these when I drop my winter fat, or (if I stay fat) I may try to trade them.

    They will probably fit you better when your out of shape.... you know, vanity sizing and all.

    Nice find, I'd try to sell them and pick up a pair in your size as they will stretch considerably.

    Actually, I take 30 or 31 already accounting for APC sizing...Some on here would probably size me in a 30 new standard right now, with fat and all, but I typically prefer just a slightly looser fit up top.

    Maybe I'll post fit pics later for opinions.

    He's sagging so I imagine he sized up from his true waist size to get them to fit like that. Measure your hips where you want to wear them, then buy tagged size -3 that corresponds (2 to account for vanity size and 1 for some stretch).

    My waist is 34 so how should I size? Would it be better to get PS or NS?

    To wear them like that just buy the biggest size and keep your hand in your pocket to hold them on.

    I dont want to sag them like that. I like how the leg fits (past the knee) where it isn't as tight as I see other people wearing the APC PS. So I'm assuming since my waist is size 34, I should buy size 33 APC PS?

    I wear Nudie High Kais in a 28 waist. What size Petit or New Standard size should I get for a slim fit, but not skinny look. I'm quite thin.

    Part of the reason why they fit like that is because they are being worn so low. To get lots of stacking and loose fit around the calves when wearing normal you would need something with a long inseam and less taper. The ones in the picture also don't appear to be APC (due to the back pocket rivets). In an APC cut with less fitted thighs you should be looking at the New Standard, it has less taper than the PS. If you want more stacking, look at something with a longer inseam, like Dior 21cm.
