    Is it true the cures are what the dior 19cm cut is based on? I just checked and they're only available from the French webstore.

    yeah, i was looking through the 'other countries (english)' site because i'm in the UK, didn't think to look on the US site.

    Ah... missed the other countries site. Would be interested to see the measurements of these compared to NS and NC.

    Now I have worn my new standards a little, I can button all the buttons now, but it hurts to wear them sometimes. I have worn them once outside the house, and three times for a few hours inside. Should I expect the pants to stretch more?

    i think he was talking about the old cure, just made a typo. i know the difference between the old standard and new standard is just an inch in the rise, but i've heard the old/new cures are apparently totally different jeans.

    for my new standards when they were new, the waistband stretching was out of the way in like a week or two, but the hips/upper thigh area took about a month to fully stretch. (daily wear)

    The first two days I wore them it was painful as hell, they fit great now, just have to persevere [​IMG]

    How do you guys actually pronounce "APC"? (If you actually have anyone irl to talk about this.) Given that it's a french brand it should be prob something like "ahphesse", yet I somehow assume that every American/Aussie/GBer pronounces it "eypeesee".

    Just pronounce it as if it's short for an Armoured Personnel Carrier.

    Thank you. There's no reason to say everything that's made or part of another country with anything other than an american accent. I love it when my friends will discuss south africa or some other offbeat topic and refer to cities like JoHHHanasberg, like they're some afrikaner all of a sudden. GTFO it's lanvin asshole, not lawvaugh
