    I've recently decided to buy a pair of high quality jeans--I'm currently considering Earnest Sewn Fultons or APC new standards. Do any department stores carry these?
    Another question on APC sizing....I've measured my waist at the hips (where I'll wear the jeans) to be 35in. What size APC new standard should I buy if I have to get them online?

    I know nothing really to anser your questions, other than I am sure they have all been answered before. I am not being the search nazi or anyting, just if you refer here:http://www.superfuture.com/city/supe...D=1768&start=1 you may get the info you need sooner.

    Also, the search feature at superfuture is pretty conducive for something like this, as it will reveal individual posts not just threads like on here.

    Based on my APC experience, I measure about 34" at the hips and a 31 is pretty slim, bordering on tight. So I would say a 32 or 33 would be your size, depending on how you want them to fit.

    PS: AFAIK Mauro at Denimbar (username DENIMBAR here) still has the best price on the APCNS.

    If you're looking for quality, I'd recommend some heavy work jeans. I bought these ones four years ago and despite years of hard work they're still intact.

    Thank you, I never had noticed that. I will stop cursing this SF when I try to search for something specific, and a 35 page thread comes up.
