    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.

    You'll probably want a size 32 for a similar fit to your normal 34s. The inseam is about 36', although I've found that the smaller sizes (29 and below) have a 34 inseam. The shrinkage is an inch, maybe 1.5 inches, but can be stretched out to the original length while still damp.

    Hi guys, i'm looking to buy me a new APC soon, and I would like to know the slimmest cut available. I'm a skinny guy so I don't think I'll have to worry about my boys being hugged too much. I've heard of the new cures but I can't seem to find them from the official english(American) website. And oh, I would also appreciate where to get the APCs, thanks! As for my fit, I fit pretty nicely in 28 nudie slim kim but I could go slimmer. I don't really care about lenght because i like alot of bunching(so long as it's straight or tapered cut). Here's a pic: [​IMG]

    How much do APC New Standards typically stretch in the thigh? I just got some and if they stretch out in the thigh a little bit they will be perfect.

    anyone tried this new style by APC called 'the new cure'

    the link is here

    http://www.azaleasf.com/apcmdnm2198.html

    if anyone could tell me the fit of these that would be great.

    i normally wear a size 29x32 slim jim and these are pretty tight (i think my sperm count is a little compromised) and was wondering is the correct size for new standards a 27 or a 28? sorry if im repeating myself but no one answered my previous post [​IMG]

    the only thing about the new cure style is that i don't think they are selvage.

    cheers

    How do the Rescues fit compared to Earnest Sewn Filson/Fulton. I have a pair of Filsons and I want something slightly looser fitting, such as in the thighs. Will the Rescues do the trick?

    Rescues are considerably looser in the butt and thighs, yes. They also have a higher rise though, and APC denim is considerably stiffer than Earnest Sewn denim (also wears a lot harder though). If you've never worn dry denim before, I gotta tell you that it's like wearing cast iron.

    I just got a pair of 34 Rescues and they are pretty loose. if you like the semi-baggy look, then go for it.

    I dont think many geezers here have experience with the Cures...mostly NS or Rescues. I thought Cures were "unisex" and probably more meant to be a gal's jean...and very tapered/tight.

    I think BrianSD has some personal experience with Cures, but I havent seen him post in a few days

    I'm looking to new standards in a 31"w. Since i'll be getting the jeans taken up to measure 32 - 33" inside leg does anyone know what the hem of the jeans will measure at that length ?

    ok i'm completely clueless about APC. where can i get descriptions of their different cuts? (their website only list 4). also, what diesel cut is the hipster (27w) comparable to? is it slimmer than zathan?
    thanks!
