Would anyone like to share their fit picture of properly stretched apc rescue? I think new standard is a bit skinny for my tastes and there aren't any pic online that I can find on rescue. Thanks!

Wow, this may be a tough one

There is also a huge thread at superfuture. I realize that these ginormous threads are a bit tough to navigate, and maybe the first poster in these type of threads could do a bit of a cliff's notes on the issues (like LA Guy did in this one), but I know you will find what you are looking for in there.

I think I should have sized down on these. Only wore them a few times, just too big.



Anyone interested in some 32 Rescues?

Bronx wingtip chelseas. They're glued and I've had to repair the sole with superglue to keep them together, but they were cheap and they've been great beaters, going on three years.

In Levis 501s and 505s I'm a 33 or 32. Should have gone for a 31 or 30 in the Rescues. I have some KMW 1980 32s now that are perfect. The Resuces are in the closet waiting to be sold, given away or whatever.

It sounds like you would prob. be best off with a 30, you seem to be a bit slimmer than me. I wear a 33 in KMW 1980 (in some washes I have actually needed a 34) BTW I would happily accept your rescues if you are looking to give them away
. My old pair are heavily worn and yours look to have a decent amount of dye still left in them..

What's your inseam? These were hemmed to 32 or so. They are pretty much unworn, never washed. Any chance of even a low offer?

This was part of my first jeans iteration after joining SF, sized down 2 from my old stuff. I'm sized down another 1 now.

I did the exact same thing with my rescues.

I had to get the rescues for my thighs which I guess are bigger than APC thinks they should be. If i size down the same as I did with some New Standards how much do you think the thighs and rear will loosen up?
