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.


Most raw denim enthusiasts (myself included) prefer to start off fresh with a pair of raw denim, so that every crease, fade, and nuance of wear is completely personal. That way, you can document (through pictures or words) the transition the jeans have made since the day you bought them, and you can proudly say that everything is 100% your own. There's definitely a sense of self-satisfaction in this, and it's why many denim purists choose to strictly stay with new denim.

Having said that, some people don't care about any of that and are strictly in it for the fades/appearance. I mean, that's all anyone who buys non-raw denim cares about, which is why the market is dominated by pre-distressed jeans. Personally, I find that it somewhat diminishes the point of raw denim to buy pre-owned, but that's just my opinion! I've seen some nicely faded pairs that have had several owners, such as the Scrawny 13 on Context Clothing's Fading Indigo archive. Live and let live, it's your denim after all!

Unfortunately, I'm not one to give an appraisal on those, so I can't help you there. But if you are content with the purchase you made, that's all that should matter.

Idk what you consider light but those look around 5 months of frequent wear to me. but if you don't the fades then i suppose it doesn't really matter then

I've heard of some people buying APC's true to size and being happy with them. It's just a rare sight is all, since it has been accepted by most to size down a bit. Usually, people that stay true to size are looking for a more relaxed fit and just wear a belt to take care of waist stretch. Is that what you're doing?

They fit perfectly in my opinion, I have a pair sized down 1 and they've stretched past my waist size (29) oddly enough.
I just prefer them true to size

I just bought a pair of petite standards true to size, they fit somewhat like new standards except a little skinnier, I'm happy with them though, probably no crotch blowouts :p

That is very strange. Glad to hear that the tts worked out for you, though!

I would say keep them. In my opinion, just barely being able to button the top button is a perfect fit for APC's. Not to mention, your fit looks nice in that picture. If you go any tighter, you're looking at something closer to a skin-tight fit, which I don't think looks as nice as a clean skinny fit (which is what you have there).

So I just got my first pair of NS and they're great.. I'm a tts 30 and got a 28. They fit perfect in the waist and thighs, but I'm wondering if I'd like them a little skinnier in the calfs.. So that is what PS's would do for me right? They are like the NS but tapered as they go down?

I sized down 2 on my NS. I got a 29 and I am a 31-32 waist. My NS stretched so much that after 2 months I needed a belt. I wear a 30 in N&F skinny guy. However, I don't like the taper (or lack there of) below the knee. So I am going to get some PS and I want them to be pretty skinny. I am thinking of going either 28 or 27.

What do you guys think?

Almost a month into my PS (sized down 2) and the waist has only stretched out barely an inch... Can't wear them with the top buttoned without getting light headed. Feels bad man smh
