    Are these actually raw or really a wash as indicated by the product page?

    This. NS are VERY similar to 511, the PS have a leg opening much more like 510 but are a little roomier in the thigh area.

    IMO it's a more "adult" version of a 510 cut.

    Looks good. I have a true 32" waist and made the mistake of buying tagged sized 31 PS. They stretched out to approximately 34". Had to wear a belt at all times for them stay on my waist.

    Anyone have NS in both the regular indigo and also the MIJ overdye'd blacks?

    Just rec'd my blacks from TBS in the same size and below the knee, it fits more like a PS than NS.

    Right now the knee and the leg opening is about 1" smaller than my other NS. I didn't think those areas stretched at all, do they? Or is the NS cut in black have a more aggressive taper?

    i remember i was bumming around macy's once for some reason a while back and decided to try to find some levi's that fit similarly to my new standards, and you're right, 511 is about as close as you can get. 511's have a lower rise, and more taper from the knee down though (the ones i tried anyway).

    not really sure where the New Standard/501 comparisons come from, i dont think they're anything alike. I dont like the look of 501's but the new standards tend to look good on most people as long as you get atleast close with the sizing.

    Hey Dbear, I got both in size 30 from tbs, and just compared the leg openings, they are the same. Maybe check if they sent you a ps instead of ns, though I doubt it.

    Well, I am comparing a pair of 1 yr old NS to a brand new black NS. The top block feels the same (as I remembered), but the bottom half is noticeably tapered.

    Maybe, the 1 yr old NS stretched on the bottom, but I didn't think the leg opening would stretch (there is no tension there right?). It is definitely 1" smaller on the MIJ blacks and it does say New Standard on them........same size of course......and the leg opening is 7", isn't the NS closer to 8"?

    I could be remembering wrong and I need to break them in, but not sure.

    I have both and the black ones are a good bit smaller all over and about 1cm in the leg opening.

    I would say the overdyed's are a size smaller, than the regular ones and they don't stretch as they have been washed.

    Ruh roh, the new MIJ overdye ones don't stretch as much? Was under the impression to size the same as regular raws...

    Ok I'm going to ask this because it's been bugging me for a while. What are considered normal thigh measurements for me height? I'm around 6 foot or 6' 1" with around a 34 inch waist OVER my hips where you wear PS. So normally a 32 or 33 in pants. My thighs are 21.5" at their widest. I tried on some PS before settling on a size 30. Are my thighs considered big?

    Do you mean 21.5" thighs circumference?

    Does anybody here have a pair of size 32 apc petit standards that are fully worn and stretched? I would be really grateful if you could post the measurements - especially waist, upper thigh, and knee!

    I think that's pretty average? I'm 6'0 with 22" thigh and size 30 or 31 PS, it looks pretty normal. Our thighs definitely aren't considered skinny though, I see lots of skinny hipster dudes around the same height and they must have like 18" thighs lol
