^I agree with the N&F comfort issue. I just started a new pair of Skinny Guys about a month ago and they are still crispy as hell. I guess my only complaint with N&F would be that the denim is tough, which may be a sign of quality. So far, no issues with the construction of N&F Skinny Guys.
My APC New Standards felt slightly more comfortable, but the waist stretched out too much (I didn't size down enough), so I gave them to my brother. Other than that they were good.
Both APC and N&F are good options, it just depends on what you like.
