    kind of afraid to wash my APC's, i bought them about 15 pounds ago, and i think i might not be able to pull them over my legs if i wash them.

    I'm on the other end, I actually lost a few pounds while dealing with some pretty awful health issues over the last year or so and now my NS 32's are all too big for me, it's gone from stacking to actual hip hop type s**t, thinking of selling them all and investing in either PS or NC.

    Yeah, I ordered these because the NS was back ordered. Figured I'd give it a try in the mean time.

    They'll stretch, I promise. The big thing with new APC's is just how stiff and rough they are. I recommend soaking them, personally, as it sort of softens them up... they will shrink a little, though, which may be a problem if you've already sized down a few.

    After one wearing, I soaked them in hot water for one hours and then hang-dried them.

    Now they have soften up and fit like a glove, no shrinking at all.

    As far as slim-fitting jeans are concerned, they are the nicest pair I have.

    I just found out NCs aren't selvage? Doesn't that make them a little worse of quality compared to the PS and NS?

    Looking for NC or PS in size 29s if anyone has em..

    They are selvedge denim. The selvedge line is gone due to the cut for the tapering.

    There's no such thing as 'selvedge denim'. There's raw, washed denim etc.

    Selvedge simply refers to the type of edge on the fabric, and has erroneously become the factor by which people judge 'quality denim'. It's an aesthetic quality, nothing more.

    So NCs may be raw, but without the selvedge line they aren't 'selvedge denim'.
