    make sure you measure your thighs first.

    How do the thighs stretch (if at all) when it comes to the NCs? Say if a size that might be tight on my thighs?

    From what I've collected after reading hundreds of pages, APCs stretch a LOT. The tighter they are at first, the more they will stretch and more they will fade.

    I got my first pair of NC on Friday. They were very tight in the thigh when first putting them. I def would not have worn them in public. I even posted a trade ad. However, I decided to keep them and see if they would stretch. I have worn them to sleep the past few nights and they have stretched enough to be comfortable without looking too tight. The waist fit pretty well and it did not need much stretching all so I can't comment on that. I have seen some crazy pics on another forum where guys sized down too much and you could see the buttons on the fly when wearing them

    Can anyone confirm whether the context size measurements for new standard are accurate?

    What's your true size and what did you get in the NCs? If you don't mind, that is.

    According to Context, NS have a slimmer thigh than PS. So I wouldn't trust it. I've been looking for more accurate/semi-accurate measurements myself.

    My measured waist at this moment is a little over 33. I vary between 32-34 depending on what I am training for or if I am training at all.

    size 31 is what I have

    I am not really into skinny jeans though. I wanted this pair to beat the hell out of and get some fades. Most of my other jeans are looser therefore harder to fade. Moreover, the only time I can wear jeans is in the evenings or weekends.

    Pictures of the raw black APCs look really grayish in photos. Do they look similar in real life or are they a nice deep black? If not can anyone recommend some good black denim with a cut similar to the PS and an equal or hopefully lower price?

    What will be the effect of the first soak after maybe 2-3 months of effective wear?
