So i got my first pair of raw jeans on tuesday. APC rescues size 30. I like the fit the way it is now and don't want them to stretch. Will the shape change or only the stress areas? I will go hem them down to a size 32 since they might shrink after the first wash. If not i would go with 30. 32 or 30?
Creases are starting to show (i went biking) and it looks like the honeycombs will be spaced out. Is there a way to tighten up the honeycombs?


PS. LAGUY: i loved the very technical explanation for my temp.ban.

Don't own APC's yet but I know I've seen a couple (putting it mildly) threads re: APC sizing.

As for tighter honeycombs, starch the back of your knees then sit at your PC with your knees bent as far back as they can go. Sit there till the starch dries completely.

That's how to get em the way you're describing - but I suggest against it. Let them form naturally man!!!

Yeah, it sounds like you're worrying too much about them - just wear them. It's really as simple as that. Really.

the questions are now irrelavent. i hemmed the jeans to 31 and looks and feels great. I just hope they don't stretch too much since i like the fit. Since they aren't skin tight and are fitted yet roomy, i think the stretching wont be that extreme.
