month ago bought NCs sz 30. couldnt button any buttons. resold.

just bought NCs 31 and the waist is perfect, but the thighs are tight as hell and can barely lift leg above knee. should i expect stretching or give up on NCs and go for a more straight leg jean? thanks

They are fine. When I first bought my PS sized down 2 I couldn't lift up my leg past my knees for two weeks. 1month later its completely fine.

Excuse this dumb question but I need to know before I order tomorrow...

What's the difference between New Cures and Petit Standards?

Thanks in advance!

New Cures taper a lot more drastically below the knees compared to Petit Standards. There are probably more differences, but that's the main one.

Uhm, no. You are 100% wrong. New Cures taper from the knee down but have a "flare" at the leg opening and actually have a bigger leg opening then the PS which have a big taper from the knee all the way down.

Example:
New Cure Tagged size 28
Waist: 30
Thigh: 10.5
Knee: 7.5
Leg Opening: 7

Petite Standard Tagged size 28
Waist: 30
Thigh: 10.5
Knee:7.25
Leg Opening: 6.75

FFS please stop posting because Unreachable had said it was tapered from the knee down, and that there are probably more differences, but that's the main one.

Does TKE bash your head repeatedly while you're being pledged or something? Incompetent to reading in between the lines and asking ridiculous questions.

Yes. I'm a 28 and ordered a 26 they fit well.
Sep 23, 2011 @ 19:46
Thank you all for your help. Ordered the PS. Can't wait to receive them.
Sep 23, 2011 @ 23:32
Will ironing my 2 month old PS' damage them at all/will I get weird fading? I was thinking ironing might help the "knee boob" area go back to being flat. Thanks!
Sep 24, 2011 @ 03:05
^itll get rid of all your creases. might as well hot soak it imo.

A hot soak would result in slight shrinking and indigo loss, right?

Would ironing result in any indigo loss?

EDIT: Also, will ironing make them any softer? They are very stiff still.
Sep 25, 2011 @ 11:44
Any soak will result in indigo loss & shrinking but a hot one will do that a little more.

If you are worried about the stiffness and all that just hang it up in the bathroom when you shower. Honestly I would just wear them and forget about it until the next wash or soak.

i never got around to showing a recent picture of my apcs but its cos i dont wear them anymore because theyre waay to small now. its a pair of NS tagged sz29 and i know i gained weight and even before the weight gain, it felt pretty tight on the thigh area even after a years worth of wear. ive decided on getting new ones, but i dont really know how to approach it, i want to avoid the super tightness in the thigh area so i was thinkin of sizing down just 1 on a pair of NS, but then i was thinking that maybe itll look too baggy on the leg area. would sizing down on a pair of PS give me the room i want in the thigh area but give me a smaller leg opening compared to a pair of NS one size down?

Just cuff or stack ... or both. There is no need for hemming.
Sep 25, 2011 @ 23:04
i've been wearing my petite standards for 2 months now. is it too late to hem it, or does it not matter? cuz theres a lot of stacking, and i kinda want less.

Sep 25, 2011 @ 23:11
^ Go ahead and take them to the tailor.

Leave enough inseam for a (small) cuff.

I know for sure the PS is slimmer than the NS so if the NS you have in 29 are too tight in the thighs for you now and you want a slim leg, you probably want a 30 PS?

Does anyone know if they ever made GREY PS in raw? And if they did, do they stretch as much as the blue ones?

They only made indigo and black. The black jeans don't stretch out as much as the indigo.

I believe even sizing 2 down from a NS would still be baggier than a PS. If you are looking for a small leg opening with no tightness on the thigh, go to the APC store and put on the pair of jeans that you can button up with no room left. It is okay if it is a little tight, but you can't struggle to get the button buttoned. Same thing happened with me with the Petit Standards so I just got them true to size. Will post pics of the fit at 25 posts.
Sep 26, 2011 @ 18:38
anyone have experience tapering their APC's?

i live in the sacramento area, and I'm wondering if I can just get my NS's tapered at your typical tailor (with good reviews on Yelp. lol)
