abcdenim - thanks!
I'm here London so I can go to a local APC store to have a tryon ,but not really sure about how much they will stretch. actually i had a pair of NS and a pair of NC. But black PS is in different matirial than indigo ones. even different from black NS. I wonder if they still strech amazingly.

thanks again..blushing

Yup, Scotty is right.

The black APC denim is infamous for not stretching out as much as the indigo. Go down 1 if you're going for black, down 2 for indigo.

just wondering, what's the difference in getting combs that are closer together as opposed to ones that are spread wider?
like how does one or the other happen?
idk, might be a stupid question...but yeah.

If the jeans are tighter to your leg behind your knee, the combs will look tight, if they are loose, then the will look longer

Trev is right, the tighter the jeans are on your legs, the closer the combs will be. I wear a slim-straight and the honeycombs developing behind my knees on the jeans are significantly spread apart in comparison to my partner's jeans (he wears a slim jean). His honeycombs are much tighter together.

^fades on looser fitting denim is always so nice. Maybe it's because it takes a lot longer to achieve and we can appreciate the work put into them? :p

Which cut of Nudies are you wearing? The APC cuts are the New Standard, Petite Standard, New Cure and Rescue.

New Standard: Slightly tapered straight leg. Similar to the Sven
Petite Standard: More tapered version of NS
New Cure: Skinny straight with slight flare at the hem, similar to Grim Tim/Thin Finn
Rescue: Straight

Then I'd say you'd probably want to get the petite standards, the more tapered fit, for something like the grim tims. Or you could go with the new standard sized down 2 - 3 for a fit that would be closer to the thin finn cut.

It"ll look fine after the stacks settle, no hem.

Thats my opinion though.

Nah I like my shirts large, cause I'm pretty tall haha.

Eh, I don't want it to stack? Just probably a little, and still be able to do a .5 cuff.

i skim this thread every once and while and i can not believe how difficult some of you guys make it on yourselves to buy a pair of fucking jeans. learning how to size down isnt calculus

in other news....will be posting pics of my new standards at 3 years of wear later


Still waiting on those pics brah

people usually size 1-2 down for ps from their normal waist. Not sure how you sized on your other nudies, but just double check your actual waist, like where your jeans are gonna sit, and then size down 1-2 depending how tight you want it. Hope that helps!

They're quite tight at the start, but they start to loosen up a bit.


How much should I hem off to make it look like this? http://lookbook.nu/look/40854-spaces-between-days

^LMAOden your pair looks pretty similar to your desired look already. You could hem but if that's the fit you're going for it doesn't look like it's very necessary, just gotta throw in the cuff!
