Sizing down 3 on NS is pretty loose. You should probably size down 4 or even 5 for an optimal fit. The general consensus for New Standards nowadays is to size down 4, while sizing down 3 if you're going NC or PS.

Does anyone know if there's a place in Toronto that sells apc ps? I don't want to order a pair and send it back if it doesn't fit and pay all the shipping fees to send back and get a new pair.

Btw, I wear size 31, should I size down 2 or 3 for ps for skinnier fit.

Sorry if this has been asked before (as Im sure it has in 450+ pages), but can someone give me a quick run down on the best care for APC's. I've had my NS's for about 7 months and have worn them pretty hard.

I dry cleaned them after 6 months as per the instructions; but now I'm curious to how people like to care for them.

What do you all do after that. Cold soak once in a while? Do you ever throw em in the laundry? What's your typical routine? What do you do in case of spills or whatever that need immediate attention? Just curious to see how everyone treats em.

What size would you recommend in the PS for someone 6'3" 31/32 waist (I'm pretty skinny), looking for a pretty slim fit

I wear size 31 and I was going to go with a 29 but I'm not really sure how much they'd stretch cos I think some have gone down 3 sizes. Gonna go try a pair on if Dutil has any and see how well a 29 fits sometime next week.

The considered norm would be soaking after 6 months and repeating the cycle.

But there truly isn't specific instructions on how to care for them. Do what you feel is necessary to your jeans.

Maybe you should soak them or wash them to get some contrast but it really is up to you.

I'm on my second pair of NC now and I highly recommend NEVER washing. It really softens up the denim and it becomes more susceptible to crotch rips.

I'd advise anyone to go no more than 2 down on PS.

So you're size 34 then right? So I think you should size down 3 on NS and 2 on PS from what DJosey said. Dunno bout the other styles. Correct me if I'm wrong.

So 31 for NS, 32 for PS

^^appreciate it!

Had my APCs for bout 2 1/2 years and its got about 3 machine washes in it, I had a stain on it from some syrup once and i got some water and some dishwashing liquid and rubbed it off and the indigo came off with it. Anyone thinks Is it time for a ocean wash now, or should I just wash it in the machine again?

hand wash i filled up the tub about six inches, stirred in like 1/4 cup of detergent and soaked em an hour then rubbed em all together to loosen up the fabric in the water. machine was a speed queen at the laundromat.. plain old cold water and some detergent. washed em with a bunch of dress clothes gentle cycle. hang dry both times.
they're very soft now, but shaped like me blushing

wash it in the machine again

why not?
