alright ill try them in a levis store this weekend thanks abc smokeyface

Do you know the closest levi to apc petit standards though? I don't wanna spend 150+ on apcs tongueface


APC doesn't make the best denim out there but it's a good investment! Now I ain't trying to convince you to drop 2 bills on denim, I'm just saying it's worth it hahahaha

Anyway, APC PS is the slimmer version of the NS.
Levi's 510 is probably the closest to APC PS and I'd say the Levi's 520 is closer to the NS.
Good luck bro!

Thanks

I guess the reason i wanted 520s was because 510s are very slim in the thigh and it doesn't flatter my already skinny legs lol

well I'll see when I try some on this weekend

Yeah the 520 has got sufficient space for the thigh, probably more flattering on bigger-thighed guys or guys with thighs disproportioned to their legs (poor sprinters and soccer players like myself). The 520 or the 511 are close to the NS imo depending on how you size with the APCs (511 = NS sized down more).

good choice man, but it's pretty hard to know how to size without your true waist size. measure your actual waist where you plan to wear your jeans and then size down 2-3 depending on how tight you want it to fit for the new standards. it sounds like you'd probably be a size 34 or 35, but just double check and go from there man!

Ok thanks!SL-100x just seems a bit too loose in most of the pictures. How much should I size down to get the right fit if I sized down from 31 to 30 in weird guys?

I know what you mean. ST-100x definitely look more like APC New Cure of NF Skinnyguy though. A couple guys have posted in sufu saying that they sized down 2 and it stretched out pretty well but most ppl are going TTS so there aren't pics of it.

You might wanna look at the:
3sixteen+ 721BSP


and

3sixteen+ 21BSP

If you don't like floppy stacking look into tapered jeans.

question..what are the best type of jeans to wear with mid to hi top sneakers? I have 501 hard-denim jeans but they tend to be a little too wide at the bottom and cover the back of the shoe more than i would like. Whats the best type of fit to wear so that the shoes can be best seen? I can't mess with skinny jeans btw...i used to love the levis 520's but i don't think they make them anymore. Any advice?

Naked and Famous Weird Guy


APC New Standard


These both are a pretty standard slim cut jean and they look good with almost any shoe.

New Standard? Size down 2 so you would go with a 30 waist

Hmm i'm 5'7 with a 28 inseam now

Standing up it's a tiny amount of stacking

Sitting it shows a little of my ankle

is this ok or should I get 30 inseam from now on? I kind of want more stacks but not too much
