    Funny, I could swear this thread, and this entire forum as a matter of fact, has a search function.

    I am looking to get Samurai S512XXBC .. I am a 31 in Studio D'Artisan D1002. Should I get a 31 or 32? I am told they run small.

    These are 32s, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to size down in these APCs, but I'm not sure if I should go for the 30s or 31s. Any thoughts?

    So I have a pair of Nudie Dry Blacks. After about 8 months of wear I washed them and they have gotten a bit lighter. In the honey combs area the black has been taken out and now there is a very dark blue. No real contrast but they are getting broken in. I am wondering how much more should I wear them before I break them in? One of the best pairs of Dry Blacks I have seen was washed 3 times in a year, so should I follow suit?

    It'd help to know what waist size you usually get and also if those are NS or Rescues.

    You just gotta keep wearing them in and a four more months wouldn't hurt.

    The problem is that sometimes people expect to have these incredibly faded jeans the day they hit six months and it just don't work that way. On a few pairs of mine after the six-month soak it seemed like it took a few more months before they REALLY started to fade.

    I usually wear 33s in Levi's. Those are New Standards. Besides having about an inch of room in the waist, they felt very baggy in the legs. Will that be fixed if I size properly, or should I try the New Cures? For comparison, 514s in 33s feel pretty baggy as well. I probably should've asked these questions before ordering, but oh well. Thanks for responding.

    tbh, I think they look a bit big on you. does the waist fit fine? the rest of it looks loose, which is ok if you want it like that, but ideally you could go down a size

    Well, you should have sized down two on the APC NS. That's the golden rule. If they still feel baggy in the legs then yeah, NC is your next option if you're sticking with APC. If 514s feel baggy to you then you should probably go straight to NC sized down one two depending on how tight you want them to be in the waist/want them to stretch. Go to http://contextclothing.com/ and check out the measurements so you can compare them to your NS.

    If I can get something in a similar price range, I'm not too concerned about sticking with APC (though it seems like they're the best intro to raw denim). Do you know of any way to find the measurements for the NC 32s? I'd like the waist and thighs to be a little loose, but tighter from the knee down.

    I can't tell, I got a size 32 Nudie SJ and I can button and zip everything perfectly but do feel a little tightness. Should I have gotten a 31 or is the 32 good enough?
