    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 [​IMG]

    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.

    Don't tempt me in starting another pair... [​IMG]

    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 [​IMG]. 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. [​IMG]

    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?

    Just depends on how you size them. My 26 NS measure the exact same as size 27 NC

    Levi 507 I wear a 31 waist

    Levi 569 I wear a 30 waist


    APC Rescue.... should I buy the 28 waist? Or 29? My thighs are large for my frame.

    You'll most likely want to size down two. So, I would say go to a size 28. Remember, they will stretch!

    It's hard to say because I don't know the true waist measurements of the levi's, but I bet they are vanity sized. The best way is to measure your waist where you like to wear your jeans, subtract 4, and order that size. You subtract 2 for APC vanity sizing and 2 more for anticipated stretch

    I sized down 3 from my usual size to 29 in rescues (normally wear a size 32), waist is perfect but I never wear them because the thighs are still pretty tight even with 6months+ of wear. My true waist measures 33", so the subtract 4 rule works great for waist size, but you might want to only subtract 3 if you have large thighs.
