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.


Loosest to tightest

Rescue-NS-PS-NC

Like I said..the diagram is followed from context's measurements, i'm not sure if they are 100% accurate but it might help in anyway..

APC NC sized down 3, fit really tight on the waist, 2nd day of wearing, i think they could stretch out a lot more, how's the fit?

okay.. so everybodys getting confused with the question which is "which is slimmer?" I feel that everybody is neglecting a factor, which is the rise. yeah, PS measurements make them techinically slimmer than NC's, but the rise on the NC's is higher. This means you will be wearing your denim higher, and in my past experience, when i wear them higher, they feel more tight because all the components of the denim will be higher on my body(if that makes any sense..). usually the lower rises don't feel as tight on my body as higher rise.

well that's my two cents.. not saying its right, but thats how i look at it and that's my experience with low/rise.

I heard Raw Petite New Standards run 2 sizes too small... So if I pick up some and they are ass-tight on me then I'm doing well?

i got some new standards the toher day...and i sized UP. LOL i know lots of people are going to hate. But the main reason i sized up was because the inseamwas too short. Also I'm not going for that "hypeabeast skinny jean look" so i don't really care if my jeans don't stretch. and if they're not too tight on my legs, then they wont stretch, and i don't mind wearing a belt. give me your input about what i did.........anyway i got my new standards on sale and they're my second pair of "nice" jeans. Still learning on how sizing up/down works. thanks.
