    I sized down 2, when i first put the jeans on, i couldn't get the top button done. But like after a couple hours of wearing it i could do the top buttom. I think i couldve done with sizing down only 1, since I think with this current pair the result will be quite slim, unless it stretches a lot

    They'll be fine, on the new standard sizing down 2 is normal, even 3 is not unusual. Depending on what you're looking for, 1 down often stretches out too much.

    After stretching its not uncommon to see the waist on these about 5 inches more than the tagged size, and similarly they stretch quite a bit in other areas as well.

    Give them another couple weeks and they'll be slim, but fit very well.

    Does anyone know anywhere I can find these below retail? Maybe through a coupon code at checkout or something online? Thanks.

    Wait for one of the european online stores to do free shipping and they'll cost you about $145-$150. I got a pair from Endclothing and a pair from Tresbienshop in these circumstances.

    im a true 32" and bought a tagged 30. a few months on, if i dont belt them tightly, they are ready to fall off me: the waist has stretched out to around 34", plus they are pretty baggy in the thighs. they stretch like crazy.

    APC doesn't let retailers discount their jeans. The only time you'll find APCs on discount is if a retailer forgets to put it on an exclusion list for a sale they have, or if they're going out of business and it's just a fire sale.

    Anyone has a recommendation for a jean that fits like NS but with higher back yoke and rise? My NS 'sags' a little from my larger bottom and I afraid it might look like those diaper fit jeans after its fully broke in...

    The waist is now about a 34, thigh is about 11.5, so they stretched about 3 inches in the waist and 3/4 inch in the thigh, if going by context's measurements.

    I just got my first pair of apc new standards and have been wearing them for 4 days although not for full days usally just when im out doing stuff so proabally around 4 hrs per day. The waist id say about right they don't fall right off without a belt but there fairly snug where I would not mind some extra stretching in the waist. My problem right now is they are extremely tight in the crotch/thighs to the point where running is out of the question and walking up stairs is difficult. Is this normal and something that will stretch out overtime where I can wear the jeans with some semblance of comfort?

    I am going to be picking up a pair in the next week, and I have a question about hemming. Should I get them hemmed at the very beginning, before I start my initial wear, or should I wait and roll them up for the first year? I am a 29 1/2-30 inseam, so it might be insane to consider wearing them for a year at that length, but I do not want to mess up the end result?

    How high would you have them hemmed given my measurements? 30? 31?
