I'm also looking to get a pair of new standards. In most normal jeans, I wear a 34. I'd like to have my APC's fit a bit loose...similar to a pair of RRDS. Nothing too fitted. I'd prefer them not to be super tight on my thighs since I've got those athletic thighs. Also, how long are the APC's and how much do they shrink? I'm 6'6'', so as long as, post-wash, it remains above 34" long it will be fine. Thank you.
