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?


just for reference, i wear 28 in NS, 29 in NC so i ended up getting a 28 in PS thinking it would be good, but its too tight. depending on your biuld, I think you size down 1 or 2 for PS, whereas you can size down up to 3 (some people do more) for NS.

You could. But the fit would be slightly different from the knee down

How come you want to change into PS? Do you think youre NS are too baggy or something? If so, go with the 28s

Go for it then bro.

If you think PS are too skinny, and dont mind a non-selvedge line then go with NC

Sorry I'm still kind of a noob, but I was under the impression that NC are skinniest/skinnier than the PS

NC are a little skinnier in the thigh but flare out at the bottom and are less tapered below the knee than PS.

PS is more like a NS with much taper below the knee.

Hey guys this is a serious question so don't flame me. Are APCS worth the $200? I don't see how they are worth that much since they're made in China. What makes them so great? The cut, fit, or style? Thanks

dtgsigns - Personally, quality indeed has gone downhill slightly, but nothing TOO major. If you're really concerned about it, go get some 3sixteens.

I'm just curious because everyone raves about APC's. Last raw jean I bought was from GAP and I didn't like the fit. So I'm on the hunt for another pair of good raw jeans.

APCs or 3sixteens are the way to go if you're in that price range

I'm also stuck deciding between APC or 3sixteen.

Thinkin APC for the fit and how the seem to fade pretty quickly. I'm really thin so I need something pretty skinny in the thighs and wont cause any flaring.

316 seems like nicer denim but not sure the ST will fit how I want.

Also people shouldn't get all caught up on things being made in China..whether these pants are or aren't made there. There's plenty of great quality items being made there.

Ok so here's the thing.. I bought a pair of NS tagged 28 and have since realized that I should have bought N&F and saved a lot of money. The problem for me now is that Context does not accept returns for refunds, only store credit. So now I'm looking to sell for a little less than I bought them for in hopes to sell faster.

So - I'm selling

APC NS Tagged 28
Completely Brand New, 100% DS - Just received them in the mail.
$165 + ship

If you're in the market for NS please but from meee
and help a brotha out. Thanks

look at the measurements to make sure they fit well. I would go 3sixteen, if I was aware of their quality before i bought my apcs thats what I would be wearing right now instead of my PS
