what's up guys, I'm about to purchase my first pair of raw denim but I'm debating between the APC new standards or nudie slim jim. Which is the better fit/ quality for the money? Any input would be greatly appreciates...thanx guys


APC ftw... Nudies quality and construction pale in comparison, better to cop the APC's

forgot to mention also I'm 6'0 and 150lbs and a size 32 I hear ur supposed to size down 2 for new standards but not to sure about nudies....can ne 1 verify?thanx again


Yes sz. down 2 on the APC's, but for nudies I believe its true sz. APC's stretch out like crazy, might be a bit tight at first, but its better in the long run

i wear size 28x28 for levi's 569's. it fits normally on me, a lil baggy on the legs but it fits fine. im a pretty skinny & short guy, should i get nudies average joe's sz 27's? (27 in measurement from the selfedge site)

^ if you're skinny you should be fine with a 27. Nudies (and almost all jeans) stretch out a bit, so you should be fine. If theyre too tight after a couple weeks of wear, soak the waistband and put 'em on, it should stretch.

So i want a somewhat slim fit, not too tight, but not baggy at all. I have 501s right now that i'm fading and I want something ALOT less baggy. I'm going for APC's. Would new standards be the best thing for what I want? Thanks guys...

new standards would be good, maybe size down 1 or 2, if you want more relaxed head for the rescues

Yeah i always buy my jeans way too big and it pisses me off haha. I'm about 30, maybe 29. So do they make them in like.. 27 x 34? Or are they even tapered enough to get decent stacking?

I think size 29 for APC is measured as 27, and most models come with a 33" 34" inseam. good enough of a tapered leg to give nice stacking i sopuse

yea APC is vanity sized so the tagged sz is really 2+ true sz, ie: sz 28=30"

I want to get a pair of APC jeans, but I dont know what to get, the NC or the PS (petit standard). I like the levi's 511, but I've never got a chance to try on any APC jeans. I buy 30x32, and I'm 6"0, 150lbs. I'm planning to order them over the web on the APC site, but I dont want to spend like 170 and realize the fit isnt too good. However I dont think theres a store in vancouver that stocks the petit standards for me to compare the fit. Any suggestions?

apc ns size 26 is pretty tight.. if you can fit into that take your true waist and just go down 1" if you are trying to get slim, but true to size will give you a semi slim / striaght, also these are shrink to fit.

Hey guys I'm planning on getting my first pair of raw denim, I don't wanna go all out just yet on the expensive brands so I got my eyes on the Levis 501 STFs. What size should I cop if I normally wear size 36/38?

probably in the fall, im probably going to cop some sammies or some flathead 380s and wear them out during the winter.

couple of questions.

should I size down (and if so how much? ) or stay true-to-size if i decide to get s0500xx?

If I got the s5000vx, would the leg hole shrink once i soak it? would i also size down or stay t-t-s?

last question, between the brands, which is more favorable?

Most of what you posted need a SOAK to fit to your waist.
Samurai, Sugar Cane, Evisu (depending on which model) if not all models need a soak.

Flathead i believe its either true to waist or size up one with a cold soak

Get some NS in sz. 30. Maybe 29 if you want a bit slimmer fit than Ryan's but not skin-tight.
