    Have any pics? They fit like mine out of the box or after stretch?

    I got a pair of 32 NS recently as well and they were stiff as heck. After the first wearing, I hot soaked them for one hour and they have soften up and fit like a glove. I anticipate further stretching.

    I've heard soaking at first with APC is not the way to go.

    Although, did this tighten up the area in the calves for you? That's really my main concern because the top block fits great (although it's similar to what I would want after stretching.)

    Thoughts on APC shirts?

    I've got a plaid l/s shirt that has been worn and soaked once, other than it's in pretty much perfect condition. It was a gift. Not getting much love since I've got better shirts. How much you guys reckon I can get if I were to sell it.

    if it didn't get rubbed in, you could probably get any stain/smell/whatever out by dabbing it with a wet paper towel.

    i spilled a bit of tea on my new standards while on an airplane, and this is what I did. i was thinking of washing them when I got home, but there was no stain, and they didn't smell, i couldn't even remember which leg it spilled on.

    so i just recently grew out of my APC new standards size 28, and i'm looking to replace them. i like the way my 28's fit from mid-thigh down, but the top hips/waist area is like 1" to 2" too tight. i was thinking about getting a size 30 or 31 new cure to replace them, because the size 30 new standard is too wide in the knee down area, and i want to still be able to stack my jeans. does anyone here own both new standard and new cure? can anyone comment on how the fits compare?

    ^^ Petit standards, new cure is for skinny legs if i were you i would size up on new standards. and flyguy, if you cold soak, with a bit of light detergent it really doesn't affect anything, except gets it clean. for anyone if you do it like this

    TIP: to embed Youtube clips, put only the encoded part of the Youtube URL, e.g. eBGIQ7ZuuiU between the tags. i hot soaked my first pair and it's hard to explain, but the it's like the indigo shifted. the light color threads became dark and then the whole pair were a kind of solid indigo. a short cold hand wash on my second pair and they were looking exactly the same, softer, but fades keep coming.

    It wouldn't be outrageous to wash them at 5 months, assuming that they've been getting normal wear. I used Woolite dark and line dry at 6 months, with very little indigo loss. Assuming you are not washing your jeans in acid, they will continue to fade after washing, as well.

    dunno if i could do petit standards, i need a 10" rise, minimum [​IMG] size 31 has a 9.75" rise according to context, but that might still be too low. i have a pair of jeans with a 9.5" rise, and they're annoying. places im looking at have pretty nice return policies though, so i might try it and see if it works out.

    Keep us updated on how your research goes on comparing the NC and NS. I'm looking to get the same fit up top as my 32 NS, with slimmer fit from the knee down.


    Maybe just have my NS 32 taken in at the bottom ;(

    I have a pair of 32 NS and had them altered as you suggest. They work well, but unfortunately the selvage was cut out. I love the fit of PS, but the rise is butt crack material, too bad. My everyday is a 33 NC, but I'm looking for something with a little more room in the leg, but not as loose as NS.

    Has anyone else tried their "New Button Down" shirts from this season? The fit is perfection except for the arm holes or something near the pits is super fucked, pulls big time in the back and is tight in only that area. The associate said people have been complaining about that in store.

    This is good info. So can you tell me how the fit of the 32 NS is to the 33 NC?

    Any pics?

    Thanks.
