In a dilemma.

I owned a pair of NS before and I sized down 2. After a little, I felt they were too baggy on me and I never wore them again.

Now I'm interested in getting PS. Should I size down 2 again or should I go 3? I understand they will stretch a lot which is why I'm considering sizing down 3 but I don't want them to be too skinny. I'd maybe like them to fit like the Nudie thin finns.

what the....i don't own apc's but i've read a bunch of peoples fit questions on this thread and i can tell you that the PS and NS are different fits...if i'm not mistaken the PS is a tapered cut so sizing down 3 would be fuken brutal. If i were you i'd only size down 1 from my true waist or not size down at all...you have to understand that stretching only occurs through tension so if you go true to size it wont stretch that much and you'll end up with a comfortable fit

So I should just size down one then huh... I'd like a little bit of stretch but I don't want the jeans to be skin tight. I'm just afraid of not sizing down because everything I've read is telling me to size down at least 2.

If you want the jeans to be perfect once you get them then size down 2. If you size down 1 the jeans will be 1 inch bigger than your actual waist size. Since APC's are vanity sized (tagged sizes are 2 numbers under their measurements).

put said shoes on, re-take fit pic. it's easier to judge length in an example of what you are talking about.

If I go with TTS PS instead of NS sized down 2, what will the fit differences be?

About 2 do my first after a year of wear any recommendations ? Should I soak with only water? Or put them in the machine on hand wash mode?
Sep 13, 2011 @ 19:29
I wonder how my ns woulda looked if I did that not washing thing. I washed mine 3 weeks after I bought em then every 2 weeks lol
Sep 13, 2011 @ 20:08
if im a size 30 or 31 waist regularly but a size 32 waist is comfortable in normal jeans, and i wear a 32 length. if i get a pair of petit standards in size 29 will they be okay? i dont want them too tight but from what i'm reading they will stretch out substancially and that they run big as is.

If you are a true 30-31 but wear a 32 in jeans because they are more comfortable it seems to me that you like a looser fitting jean. If that is true you should definitely not get the PS because they are the skinniest pair APC makes. Id suggest getting a size 30-31 new standard.
Sep 14, 2011 @ 09:36
No they're not.

If you want to get PS, and you think you're a size 30 or 31, buying a sized 29 should be fine for you. They run tight at first but yes they do stretch. But if you want a more loose fit, I would say get some NS's, and size down 2.


I think the PS is the skinniest model. The only thing that comes close would be the NC and according to Context's sizing chart the PS is slimmer.

PS size 29
Thigh:10.75
Knee:7.5
Leg Opening:7

NC size 29
Thigh:10.75
Knee:7.75
Leg Opening: 7.25

The chart shoes that the thigh is the same for the two models, the knee and leg opening on NC is .25" bigger.

quick insight

I am contemplating about getting a black pair of apcs but their tagged 29. I am normally about at 29-30 in waist size. will these be loose after stretching? or will they be fine for a loose straight fit?

If you are a true size 29 then buying a tagged size 29 will stretch to be to big. If you are a true size 30 then a 29 in the black NS should be fine, however, I'd suggest wearing a belt to keep the stretching at the waist to a minimum.

i'm selling apc ns sz 28.. wore twice no fades.. hit me up!
Sep 14, 2011 @ 13:02
I've been wearing my PS about 6 times a week since August 1 and they are just starting to stretch out nicely. I can finally tuck my shirts in without it looking terrible. Is that normal? About a month and a half of wear until it starts to stretch?

If you are for sure a 30-31 waist, then 29s should be fine in the long run (tight in the beginning).

It should be alright, stretching comes from tension so the tighter they are the more they will stretch. Most people size down 1 or 2 (more so 2 I believe) in the PS. It sounds like the NS might be a better option for you if you are looking for a fit not so skinny.

They will stretch, you should find a smaller pair. If you're looking for a loose straight fit, you'd probably opt for the New Standard. Ideally you'd want to size down 2 so you'd be looking for a 28. It won't be worth it if they end up not looking right!

Hey, does anyone know if the APC store in L.A. is still taking worn pairs of jeans and trading for %50 off a new pair?

Haven't been keeping up with these things and I don't see the butler series on their website anymore.
