don't you size down 2 from your waist for the APC NS and size up 1 from your waist for the 501 STF?

The fit is nowhere near the same, and they're a really weird shape raw, unwearable without a wash(for me at least).

Also, If I were you I'd buy true to my waist, then wear them in the bath, they'll stretch to the right size.

My real pants size is 31x32 (in chinos and the like).
NS in 29 fit perfectly (a bit tight but I like it) and length is perfect-- no cuffing, shortening, or stacking.
