    depends on how you want them to fit

    fairly tight, but with enough room for my little men to be comfortable.

    thinking about picking up a pair of new cures or petite standards as my first pair of raw denim.

    currently i wear a size 32x32 in levi's 511s, should i size down to a 31 or a 30?


    30 or 29 is the question. I wear 32 in 511 and went with 28. I'd get the 29 if I bought another pair.

    well i was having a kinda difficult time buttoning up 31s, so idk if going down to 29/28 is a good idea

    Iroh: Buy them locally at Nomad on Richmond, you can actually try them on and check out the sizing in person. Holt Renfrew on Bloor also sells them, they should be around $195. US pricing is $165, so it's really worth it to get the retail buying experience.

    I haven't worn 511s in a while so maybe I'm skinnier now. Or perhaps you're a particularly fat 32. If you're having trouble buttoning a jean with an actual 33" waist I'm not sure how you managed to squeeze into size 32 in 511s.

    What APCs after stretching out and all would be closest to how levis 511's fit?

    Anything? I wear a 32/30 sometimes 32 for stacks if that helps at all.
    Not lookin for much just some help for my first APC buy.

    i wrote this a while back

    its been a while and i can't remember how 511's fit, but like 6 or so months ago i remember thinking (while in the changing room trying on some 511's) that my size 28 new standards fit kinda similar to 511's in size 33, except the 511's had more taper and a slightly lower rise. levi's sizing is pretty eratic though, i found a pair in a different wash size 31 that fit the same as the 33's.


    the closest cut would probably be petit standards, or new standards sized down a bit more than usual if you dont mind a more straight-looking leg and slightly higher rise.


    as for sizing, look at the context charts, measure your jeans, and factor in about 2" to 3" of stretch in the waist, and about .5" to 1" or so of stretch in the legs.

    well, it wasn't difficulty so much as it was just fairly tight. in a few days the 31 would definitely have stretched out to fit me fine no problem. the 32s are very roomy, as it is.

    Oh. Sorry. Well thanks for the information, think I might just go for the new standards but size down 3.

    In case somebody wants to know where their fabric comes from: http://www.japanblue.co.jp/
    Where on the site does it say that? It only shows the momotaro jeans. BTW, is a hot soak required for the jean to fade or they could be wear as is?

    Tres Bien just stocked some black washed PS (I got measurement info from them and it turns out that they measure the same as the raw version, i.e. +2")

    APC webshop is doing pre-orders on a new Sky blue PS that looks pretty good imo.
