i bought APC NS in size 29...and ive had them for about 2 weeks. The problem is that the leg opening is too small...its just not my style. I would feel more comfortable if it were slightly larger more like a slim straight leg opening..is there a way to do that? bring it to a tailor maybe?

PC stretches alot, did you try pulling the leg opening some? You might be able to stretch them out.

ive heard from others that the leg opening wont stretch that much tho...the 7 inch opening is just not my style, i like my jeans to break on the sneaker not bunch up before it...if anyone knows what i mean..

They are a tapered (barely) leg jean.... did you not expect this when you bought them? There is nothing a tailor can do. Sell them.
Edit: You could hem them shorter which would eliminate some taper (more or less depending on your height), but it's still not going to make it significantly larger by any means.

I have the same problem with ns. The nearest fit to them and my favourite jean by a country mile is levis lvc 1947 with an 8" leg opening in your size.

Quick question while we're on this topic. If I hem the APC NS from the original 34" length to 31", will the leg opening get bigger? How much?

Well, go up 3 inches from the hem line of the jeans and measure what the length across. That is what your new leg opening will be.

Yes, and probably not a lot, maybe 0.25-0.5" You can probably measure it if you wanted.
