    So I've got a pair of NC's, and after wearing them for a while still find 'em to be a bit tight. I'm looking at switching over to PS's which I thought were a slightly less-slim version of the NC's. APC's site even lists the NC's as being the slimmest cut, but according to Context's measurement chart, the size 30 (size I wear) PS's are actually slightly slimmer than the size 30 NC's. Can someone help me out here?

    Got that poster/catalog in mail the other day. Eyeing one of those storm coats for my girl, but don't think APC outerwear is worth retail.

    Does anyone discuss anything other than jeans here?

    Yes and we all conclude, none of the shit is worth retail.

    PS is less slim... the lower rise makes the measurements decieving.

    No I didn't size down. I've been running into an issue because my legs are larger and my waist is usually about a 32, so I've been sizing based on them fitting my legs.

    These buttoned up with no issue what so ever.

    Hey guys,

    I had asked same question in the Jeans thread, but I think that`s the better one for it...

    I`m planning on buying a new piece of raw denim and I think that I will pick up the A.P.C New Cure. But I`m not sure in which size. I`ve readed that you have to size down 2 in A.P.C.s is that right? I have a 27/34 in Nudie`s Thin Finn and Slim Jim, so should I take this size for the New Cure or size down 1 or 2?

    Thanks for help!

    tragic...

    nixx i'd go with NS, kinda got that carrot look. If there's problems with your waist and legs measuring whatever maybe rescues are a better cut actually. Unless you were going for the super skinny jean look. Also, its not a good idea to size up on APCs.

    Your legs looks like sausages in those...perhaps something with a fuller leg would be better suited to you. Those don't look comfortable at all.

    I received some Petit Standards yesterday and while the calf area fits perfectly and the waist should stretch out pretty well, the thighs are super tight. similar, maybe even tighter, than the photos of the guy above. Are they likely to stretch out at all, or should I give up now and sell these on before they're stretched out of shape?

    They'll stretch too, cross your legs while sitting, take two three steps on the stairs at a time etc...
