    Hi,

    I bought around 6 months ago a pair of NS size 30. Normail waist is 32. Before washing they streched to normal and they were perfect. I washed then in washing machine in cold water and they shrinked like they were new. The problem is they never stretched back and now hey are too tight.
    Any tips?

    lalakis this same very thing happened with me and my skulls i wore them for a year after first soak since they where raw. they stretched out perfect every where but then it reached the 1 year mark and they smelled really bad. so i washed them they shrank back to tagged measurements maybe even more.

    now i'm selling them because i tried to wear them again straight for 2 months they didn't stretch back out.

    Cross your legs if you work at a desk job.

    canstyleace, Nomad on Richmond just got a restock in - they carry New Standard and Petit Standard, no Rescues. Holt Renfrew on Bloor also carries the New Cure.

    They should have a full run of sizes. They're like $195 CAD at the shop, and $165 US plus shipping online. Go, try them on, get your size right, and support the store. Don't be a "tries it on in the store that actually bothered to stock it locally but then orders off the internet" guy [​IMG]

    And, as you've probably already read in this thread - size down!


    Thanks Bob, trust me living in toronto and being the size I am, I will always purchase locally if I can find my size, and I actually like Nomad quite a bit and have bought many things there over the time I've been here, so yeah if I can find 25 or 26 in either place and I like this fit then I will definitely cop and support the locals.

    btw- is this the quote you were looking for?

    Have any of you tried their parka for A/W? You know, their "classic" parka coat with faux fur lining.

    My APC's haven't even gotten a month of wear, and they're starting to smell, like that of a slightly dirty dog.

    Aside from washing them, what are some alternatives to getting rid of the smell?
    1. febreeze
    2. put in freezer
    3. ???
    4. ???

    Just hang them outside to air. Not that they should be smelling after that long...what have you been doing in them[​IMG]

    Well aside from sweating in them a couple times due to the heat wave that hit a month ago, nothing really, except wearing it almost daily.

    They don't smell that bad, like a pretty clean dog, ya know? They don't smell like shit, but the natural smell of dog isn't the most pleasant.

    I'm probably overreacting in terms of how much they really smell. Thanks.

    Take two or three steps at a time when taking the stairs.

    The only problem i'm still having is the that my ass is still somewhat confined. Makes my farts sound funny.

    Just bought a pair of New Cures. I was nervous about the amount of taper at first but I like them now that I've put em on. Hooollllyyyy crap they were tight...took a good 5 minutes to get the top button on. But I've had them on for a couple hours now and they've already loosened some. Can't wait to see what these bad boys look like in a year. I'll take a starting pic tonight.

    I was thinking of getting a pair of NC as well, but then my NS are already sorta tapered enough for my fat legs. Kinda sucks for me cause I have larger thighs, but a tiny waist, something like a 26/27. Probably get a pair of PS next or maybe try some Dior
