    so I just picked up a pair of APC PS in size 29 today that were only work a handful of times. they fit great and are fairly roomy. it's just a little weird because my size 28 were incredibly tight and difficult to even button up fully. i'm just wondering if one size can make that much of a difference

    Jebus...I'm a DJ...full time not like everyone's a DJ...and I know studio gear/audiophile stuff is expensive...but there's a whole forum for $800 headphones?!?!

    But to answer your question....yeah, one size can make a lot of difference. I generally order a few sizes that can be returned. One always feels super tight, one tight but bearable, and one feels loose. I always go with the one in the middle.

    Which reminds me, if anyone is interested in a pair of size 30 PS that have been worn a week, PM me.

    Sz 34 in N&F Weird Guy....I still can't figure out what the closest similar cut is (room in the thigh and taper). PS....size 33?

    Would PS be the way to go for an equivalent for WG, or is NS better?

    in my opinion, PS is a closer fit because of the taper. but for reference if you are considering NS, I wear 28/29 in WG (depending on which pair), 29 in PS, and 28 in NS.

    Gotcha.

    I don't like slim/straight (I had NS before but screwed up the sizing), my thighs look like sausage casings and if I size up enough for them to fit the leg opening and waist is too big.

    Might try PS when I get the chance. I'm a 34 waist in pretty much everything (N&F WG, chinos/shorts etc).

    Thanks for the reply. I hope everything I am hearing is right. I can barely breath with these jeans on and barely button them. I can't even really button the crotch buttons. Is that standard?

    So when do you wash the jeans?

    If I want the jeans to fit similar to these from JCrew's website what's the suggestion?

    http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/denim/484slim/PRDOVR~18975/18975.jsp

    I wear a 31 in 484's and JBrand and Diesel. I don't want a supper baggy fit with the denim. I want a more clean fit such as that in picture. I like my jeans slimmer cut but straight fitting. Are APC New Standards the right jean? I enjoy 484, but for some reason I can't justify paying $150 or $225 for a pair of JCrew jeans.

    I realize I will probably need to shorten the jeans as they run a little long.

    I wasn't asking where to buy them, I was inquiring about a question regarding the build of the jeans.

    I'd say the petit standard is closer to the 484

    Sorry about the miscommunication but I asked Are APC New Standards the right jean? Meaning, will the fit correctly. Do you think they will fit like 484?
