    This question has been asked, but I didn't see that anyone has replied to it: what is the new name of what used to be called the APC Rescue? The website no longer has anything called that, so I'm hoping they just renamed them...

    Thanks!!

    GREAT! I was *very* unhappy when whoopee thought they were done-for. I've been wearing mine hard as nails for 6 months, and they have almost no wear on them whatsoever. It's totally bizarre, but I love them.

    if anyone could post some measurements of APC new standard size 27 as compared to size 28 (or 26 compared with 27, or any two sequential sizes for that matter), it would be much appreciated!

    I have the 27, but it's been worn for 2 months now so it's definitely stretched to fit me. Somebody else could post the 28?

    alright, i've looked through the thread and have found people saying they have difficulty in buttoning up their jeans at first...

    but how about if I were to size down 2 and CANNOT button up the jeans? I haven't bought a pair yet, but I'm going out next week to a store that sells some, and I'll try them on...but my size 34 jeans are already pretty tight at the waist, and I'm just curious what if the 32s do not button up at all? since they won't be having pressure on the waist, will it still eventually expand to button up if I wear them around the house not completely buttoned or what? or should I just go for a 33 if they don't button up?

    IMHO, buying jeans that you cannot button up to begin with is just stupid - its fashion victim absurdity. If you want a tighter pair of APCs (which do stretch a little more than other jeans), buy a pair that are pretty snug (i.e. that you have to suck in your gut to button up.) They will loosen up at the waist to be comfortable, and will stay that way, unless you do something wierd, like hooking your thumb into the waistband like I do, which will stretch out the waistband further. The size down, size up thing is meant as a guideline only.

    I'd go with the 28's. I*wear a 29 right now, and they are slightly antifit. I easily fit into a 30 Thin finns, but prefer a more antifit 31 (or even 32!) 27 is going to be way too tight.

    Haha, not a big fan of the stretch-to-fit?

    I have a quick q here. If I prefer my RRDS and Canes 47 to be waist 32, what size should I get the New Standard for a skinny, slim-jim-like fit?

    Okay, I am assuming that you wear your RRDS pretty tight, right? If the 32 RRDS are tight on you, you probably want to go with a 30 in the APC NS for a really tight fit.

    The NS will be worn slim in a aesthetically pleasing way, but not nut-crushing tight as I do not like discomfort. Have already decided on a size 31.

    For reference, I wear both 32 in RRDS and Julian Red Calis. The Calis fit 3 on Brian's scale, the RRs a 5. I'm looking for a 3-4 with the NS (will be worn low and slouchy)

    Thanks Fok.

    I feel sorry asking another question about New Standards, but I took some photos so hope it's easier. [​IMG] [​IMG] First pic is me wearing Earnest Sewn Filson, size 30. They fit comfortably around the waist. The second pic is Helmut Lang bootcut jeans, size 29. They fit somewhat tight around the waist and thighs but do not pose any threat to my sperm count.. Basically I like how both jeans fit. I slightly prefer the slightly tighter fit of Helmut Lang, but I would take either fit. So what size in New Standards? 28 or 29? Actually I already placed an order for 29 but e-mailed asking to change it to 28. I haven't got a response, but if you guys recommend 29 I'll be e-mailing them again. I hope APC customer service guys are patient and kind [​IMG]

    28 i think [​IMG] they'll loosen up to a 30 easily.
