But I don't know if that's legit. There doesn't seem to be a problem with this one to me, but whatever I'll just post in both until this gets sorted out.

Will the whole jeans stretch out or just the waist??
February 08, 2012 @ 15:28:31
wherever there is tension in the fabric. the thighs, knees, and sometimes calves will all stretch in addition to the waste

it will stretch even if i wear them a little looser and have to wear a belt? won't they shrink even more after the first wash?

well the waist (and knees) stretch a lot because the is a "push pull motion" and constant movement in those areas. When you walk your ass, hips, and upper thighs pull and move the denim around, and even though they are not necessarily tight, the fabric is still being stretched and pulled in those areas. it will add less than an inch but definitely something noticeable. With enough time, it takes a very little amount of tension to stretch cotton fibers.

for your second question, the denim does shrink more relative to how much youve stretched it but I believe (and someone correct me if im wrong) that the measurements will be the same post soak. For instance, lets say your knee measurement goes from 7" to 7.5" back to 7.1" after washing. But on the same pair there is less tension for some reason, and it only goes from 7.1"-7.3" back to 7.1". Now technically there is more shrinkage but the post wash measurement should be the same

Because the OP of the other thread is an idiot.

I’m sure this has been answered a few times already, and I apologize for not being able to look around for it.. But I am thinking of buying some APC NS's and I’m wondering how to size? I’ve heard size down 1 or size down 2? What do you think? I’m about a 29-30. Thanks for the help, it’s appreciated.
Also, whats the difference between NS and PS?
February 08, 2012 @ 23:41:38
You need to take 2 seconds and do the research yourself...if you need any additional help then ask. You can probably find your answer on the previous page since this thread has at least 5 sizing questions per page. So quit being lazy.

since I'm already typing I'll just say size UP 2 on the NS for a skinny fit. They'll shrink with lots of wear so don't worry and you heard wrong about sizing.

There's two threads because this thread was jacked up several weeks ago. Post were not loading. It happened for the N&F thread to for about two days.

February 09, 2012 @ 03:06:13
I guess the problem with APC is people tend to get the vanity sizing all mix up. haha.

Picture taken 3 days ago, looks a hint darker than the picture.

AFAIK, needsupply is the only online store that has a coupon code (FEBFORUM12 gives 10% off) that works for APCs. Still pricey though.

Go for a 27. Those look too roomy. However, I think the NS will be a better fit, personally.

Looking for in size 8.5-9 003 Authentics/Chukka PM ME!

Now i'm sick that i didn't catch that APC deal.

The secret of discipline is motivation. When a man is sufficiently motivated, discipline will take care of itself

get ready to abuse your hips if you go for the 27. the only thing about a 28 is that it fits the same as the 29 in terms of bagginess just a smaller waist. so if your looking for a skinnier fit, the size 27 ns is the absolute perfect skinny jeans fit

i just bought em i wanted to know if they were worth it or not
February 11, 2012 @ 20:17:13
In that case, I don't think it's worth it to buy any pair of used denim that already has a decent fades on em... it kinda takes away the original purpose of going raw in the first place. Plus, you're gonna be putting on 6 month's of another dude's accumulated leg filth
February 11, 2012 @ 20:24:54
couldn't have accumulated that much from light wear, true it does take away the original purpose, but my purpose is to get them really worn out so i dont mind it having some fades on it already.
