    A lot of thier clothes have differnt tags ...i have 2 pair of NS one much older then the other and the tags are diifernt the front button and the number of fly buttons haha.

    Yea, I realised that after doing some searching.

    Guess its a false alarm after all.

    They discreetly try to hide the fact by saying Made in Macau lol

    No, because made in Macau is the fact. It's the same as saying something "made in Taiwan" is hiding the fact that it's made in China. Although both are true.

    It's plausible they're trying to hide the tainted imaged of "made in China" goods, but in this case they profit from the consumers ignorance

    Taiwan is not China. Macau is not China either, but closer. Macau is like Puerto Rico to the U.S whereas Taiwan operates completely independently of China.

    My rescues have recently become too big (lost some weight), my rescues are a 31 (but I imagine a 30 would be a better fit)

    If I get NS should I size up, or is the waist fit similiar?

    Also, is there a way to make the denim feel stiffer/more rough? I've only had experience with RRDS and RRDG in the past, and the denim feels much heavier/stiffer whereas APC's feel sort of light and soft...ideas?

    I'm looking for a fit MOST similar to RRDS/RRDG, I loved the way these felt, but I'm tired of Nudies

    looking to get a pair of PS, i wear levis 511 in 31w looking for a similar fit.
    should I go with a 29? I had a pair of NS about 2 years ago in a 28 and that worked out well after stretching. but i'd like something a little slimmer
    I am about 6' 160lbs

    also... the PS is the same cut as dior 19cm right? but is the sizing the same?

    buy a 28 if you want a skinnier fit, definitely. they'll stretch in the waist, don't be scared.
    edit: 6'0 160!?!? jesus. that is terrifying.

    i think we're getting off topic with this weight thing. this is the APC question thread, not "judge other peoples physique" thread

    I don't agree. APCs are for skinny people, more importantly we should be judging their intelligence.

    not sure i agree with that statement, but the dude is not over weight so i dont see any reason to discuss it since he fits the "skinny" profile you say APCs are for.
