What is the best online site to purchase APC jeans? I am looking for NS size 32. Thanks. i used context, great customer service, free shipping, and if i remember correctly, good return policy too. Is it possible that an un-worn pair of new standards, size 27, could measure 31" at the waist? A friend is selling a pair and he says they measure 31" (i thought a size 27 had a true waist of around 29"). are you sure he didn't wear them for a bit? the initial stretching doesn't take long at all.
