Probably not but then you cant make a whole circle of books according to your waist..so it would be best to naturally stretch it out by wear.

Oh fosho? Cool but he says he sized down 1 on them so like I dont want them to look hella skinny and shit. I want a more straight/slim look.

I've seen a lot of nasty lookin apcs so I'm kinda scared.


i always go for the smaller size when in doubt with apc. but its your call

Yeah, I'd always go smaller with APCs, but right now I'm wearing my New Cures that I sized down one on. I've worn them for almost a week, but they haven't stretched - only in the waist. I'll post fit pics later in the day when I'm not at school. I'm afraid they might be too tight.

I sized down 2 on my New Cures.. The first couple weeks might seem like hell, but after that they eventually stretch. It's been about a month for mine, and I'm liking the fit now. Felt a little stranger when I realized that they weren't ridiculously tight anymore.

Some questions. Alright so I purchased A.P.C. new standards and sized down too 29 (I wear 31-32) as I heard they stretched a lot. I hemmed them from 32 too 30, as I do sag but don't like od stacking. Initially, they were tight too the point of being uncomfortable and hard too button, but that has gotten better. What is keeping me wondering, why aren't they stacking like all of yours. The back seems so straight legged. Any suggestions

Im a fairly short person and I just purchased a pair of PS. I know the default length is 34, but I was thinking maybe I should go down to 32 ish? It wont really matter if I hem it a little correct? I can still stack regardless. Im just gonna do a cheap hem, i dont care about euro, but I hard how it ruins the self edge O_O. It only matters if you cuff though right?

Then NS and PS will be your best bet. Or even Rescues.

erkay, i keep reading and reading and reading.. and now i is are confused..

My understanding is that apc's translate roughly like this (compared loosely to levi's):

Rescue- Levi's "Relaxed" Fit
NS- Levi's 501's
NC- Levi's 514's/Slim
PS- Skinny

Plz to correct me if i are wrong. I'm trying to get some NS if infact they are pretty similar to 501's.

It's not so hard.

Rescue - relaxed.
NS - straight leg.
PS - straight/slim.
NC - slim.

I don't know how to translate it into Levi's, but that's that.

Yes.

If we were to make a line diagram for your (sasquach) better understanding, it would look like this:

Ranging from loosest on the left to skinnier on the right:

Rescue ------- New Standard ------ Petite Standard ------ New Cure.
