did you size down two on these? solid fit.

and you should size up as you go onto the tighter fits if you want to maintain that fit, unless you want skin tight swag


Thanks yeah I'll do PS/NC in 29s.

I sized down 3 I think.. it's hard to tell because I wear 30W Diesels which are supposedly ~1-2 sizes big.. and I sized down to 28 for the NS, so technically I sized down 3 or 4. If I wear the NS at long periods my hips become sore as eff though since they're so tight, but I think it'll stretch to be perfect.


@ichris: I wear a 31 Nudie Slim Jim and a 28 APC NS if that gives you any clue to how much these stretch. I would say size down 2 from your Nudie size.. I sized down 3, but my Nudies fit looser than I'd like.

If your waist is 30 and you went with a tagged 28 you didn't size down you just essentially got a size 30. If your waist is a 31 then you sized down 1.

Oh.. well if you put it that way, idkwtfurtalkingabout.

I'm talking in terms of APC sizing.. not what it stretches to. I am a size 28 in APCs, and a regular size 31 or 32 waist in other jeans. So yes that would be 3-4 sizes down from my other jeans. 32 - 28 = whattttomgicantdomath

Yes as am I. An apc tagged 28 measures out to 30. So if you are a measured 30 and you get a tagged 28 you didn't size down you essentially got a size 30. If you're a measured 31 and you picked up a tagged 28 you sized down 1.

P.s. You're not funny.

if I normally wear a 32, I should get a tagged 30 since it'll stretch out to a 32?

This has probably been answered a million times in this thread but I don't feel like looking through it.

No a tagged 30 doesn't stretch to a 32 it already is a 32. Hence vanity sizing.

what cut are we talking about? NS's? But anyway the waist will stretch to a an actual waist if 33 or even a 34(very active in them)... So if u want them to look like they are when u first buy em after a few months then go down one more to a 29 but if u want them to be stretched out and loose abit in the waist and thighs then get a 30... But this is if u are talking new standards...

U cant shrink em down... U can hot soak em but that will shrink for a few wears then they will stretch right back to where they were.. U could sell em off and buy a size down from them or u can go to a tailor and see if they can take it in...

Sell, buy smaller size, don't waste time tailoring or trying to put them in 200 deg water to shrink.

I want to buy a pair of NS bad, but the knee bulges that come after 3 weeks of wear are terrible. It seems like the only sizes that don't stretch are tagged 27 and lower, but my true wiast is a 31 and I dont want to have to size down 4 sizes. What is I gone do?

If I get a pair of NC along with my NS will the fades turn out pretty similar with just a skinnier cut? I wanna get some skinny raws, but I don't know if 2 pairs of APCs is overdoing it.


Yes as am I. An apc tagged 28 measures out to 30. So if you are a measured 30 and you get a tagged 28 you didn't size down you essentially got a size 30. If you're a measured 31 and you picked up a tagged 28 you sized down 1.

Argue more semantics dude. I posted to help others with their sizing; if they read my post they will understand what I mean. It's stupid semantics shit like this that had me confused when I was sizing for my APCs.

And it just so happens 30 Diesels measure a little over 33 at the waist. Not everything is TTS, I never mentioned crap about waist measurements. So yes I sized down 3-4, your terms and mine. Whatever's up your ass you gotta deal with it bro... smile I was just trying to help, be happy.

No matter what you will NOT escape knee bulges, some worse than others but its natural.

Fading will maybe be different depending on how tight the fit is, you will get a bit more lap fade, whiskers, crotch fade if it is tighter.
