which is why i don't want to go with the NS cut, heel drag will be inevitable...atleast for me
Oct 01, 2009 @ 21:14
My 34 ns are 8.5 which I like. No heel drag with my sk8 hi's
Oct 01, 2009 @ 22:11
That's because sk8 hi's are hi tops...

Really.... I thought they were low tops. Lol
I have no prob with my authentics aswell

i don't like the NS cut at all. What's the point of buying $155 jeans, if you're just gonna end up spending $15-20 to get them tapered. I'll stick to NC or PS.

Plus, I hate heel drag on my jeans, but looking at the Evolution of Denim thread, it seems like a majority of people don't mind heel drag. It reminds me of those guys that wear AF and AE jeans with sandals.

The NS cut is tapered enough that I don't get heal drag at all. They sit perfectly on a pair of authentics, reach the end of the shoe just enough so that they don't touch the ground.

And plus I wear my jeans very slim (NS down 3), there's other who don't like the slim fit at all.

^^That's probably where I went wrong with NS. I only sized down about 1.5" (i'm true in between 33 and 34) and got NS in 32. I wore them for a couple of minutes and didn't like the fit below the knees and just sold them.

Exactly!!!!!
And yes I beleive ns sized 3 down is perfect. I only sized down 2 on my current pair. But I will probably get blk ns one more size smaller. I have to compare the new cures as they might give me a better fit.

wrong.
they dont drag.

i have some low top fans and i my ns dont drag with them.

and i only sized down.... none...

How does this sizing thing work?

I know your supposed to size down, but according to context clothing the APC sizes are two sizes larger than tagged. Am I supposed to size down from the tagged size or the fit size?

If I want something similar to Levis 501s in 32, what size in NS should I get?

Does the legs stretch too, or is it just the waist?

This is probably asked before, but I couldn't find it.
Oct 02, 2009 @ 14:49
^ if u want a pair of APC in compared to Levi 501, NS's arent your cut because the leg opening is smaller.. U would have to get APC Rescues in like a 29.. The waist and thighs will stretch..
Oct 02, 2009 @ 14:51
Sad day. Just ripped my APC's near the crotch. Hopefully the repair goes well. I've had them since mid January, still unwashed.
Oct 02, 2009 @ 19:34
tapering is the leg opening, but more like the opening size from the knee down.
lol, you have to know that the leg opening size changes as your WS changes. so all you guys complainig about not tapered must be fattah ;O.

and @ zian, aw, poor you. give them to me then.
Oct 02, 2009 @ 21:12
does anyone know if it's possible for new standards to stretch from a 36 to a 40? thinkin bout coppin some APCs from someone but just wanna know...
Oct 02, 2009 @ 22:29
k so i wanna buy a pair of APC's and my true waist sz is a 32 but im not sure about the sizing on APC's cuz everyone is telling me diffrent things.

FOR NS:

Size down 2 for slim
Size down 3 for skinnier

FOR NC:

size down one 1 is fine

was talking to a lady in the la store she told me NS sizes up 1.5.

doubt it though, because ive had em for 2 weeks and i sized down 2 and theyre stretching a lot

soooo maybe if you do a lot of physical activity in em
Oct 03, 2009 @ 03:23
Again, is it true that NS are two sizes bigger than tagged size? According to context clothing a tagged 30 has a 32 waist.
Oct 03, 2009 @ 07:22
^ALL APCs r vanity sized so they run 2 sizes bigger in the waist, you can always size down more than 2 cuz it can stretch more than 2 sizes depending on wat you do while wearing ur APCs

So if im a 32 in my other jeans I should get a 30 in apc ns? Or a 28?
Oct 03, 2009 @ 07:58
A tagged 30 would actually be a 32 so you should get a 30.
To account for stretching or a skinnier fit you can also go down to a 29.

Oct 03, 2009 @ 12:13

Oct 03, 2009 @ 12:56
Uhhhhhhh. My NS don't have any heel drag with authentics. Maybe the larger sizes do because the leg opening gets bigger.
Oct 03, 2009 @ 14:17
I have thunder thighs but want a slim (not skinny) cut. Should I go with the PS for the extra thigh room or NS and hope for the best?
Oct 03, 2009 @ 14:25
Ns.
Oct 03, 2009 @ 14:29
Well PS taper more. Which would make them look more skinny, and you don't want that right? So...
