NS for 90 shipped to Canada for "tried on" good deal?


Yeah, $90 shipped to Canada is a good deal. I think I've seen them go for $75 shipped before, but they were slightly more used. I say go for the deal smile

So I have a pair of APC rescues...Only Denim I've worn for past 6 months. Well at first I couldnt even button the top button. Then after a week for the next 5 months they fit perfect!...But all of a sudden Theyre loose as hell. I think its from when I go to piss say at baseball games or whatever I just pull my pants down instead of unbuttoning and it stretched it out. Sounds dumb but Im serious...

So any solutions to this...Never been washed and I really didnt want to for another 6 months but if I do wash them now will they shrink back to the right size?


Just wash the jeans. If you're hesitant to, then do a hot soak for 2 hours. They should shrink back to a size that fits you better.

if you're planning to cop a pair of APC, I'd say size down 2 sizes. They stretch out quite a bit

i was gonna buy a pair of APCs but after reading the first few pages of this thread & hearing about problems with sizing i think i might just buy a pair of nudies = /

Nudies aren't any better, instead of stretching they have tendency to blowout. Ive seen many a pair with crotch and ass repairs. Look into APC new cures, they dont stretch as much.

actually i`ve been noticing some weird fades around the crotch...is that due to blow out or is that normal

Well for nudies its normal because thats their weak spot, so its naturally going to fade faster. At least until a fat hole appears.

raw is unwashed. selvage is the self finished edge on a roll of shuttle loomed denim.

yes, some people need to go to school.

ay cheep or someone,

My APCs got a stain on the knee I noticed today. Ive been wearing them for 6 months without a wash. Getting a little lose as is. Is there a proper way of washing/soaking them? Also treat the same as you would on a tee or what?
Any help is cool.

No raw doesn't mean selvedge, raw just means its unwashed. However, a pair of jeans can be raw and selvedge.

it says selvage on the main description for new standards and the detail description of the indigos but not on the detail description of the blacks. it's just a sizing issue since the selvage seems to stretch more i need to know before pulling the trigger.

got me some NS today, i really like the fit, a little baggier than my jims, I'm considering not going with the whole 6 months before a wash thing, just to see what happens.


There are some cool NS on Sufu that supposedly are washed regularly.

Look up the definition of raw. Pretty self explanatory.

yes, i believe that was me. to clear any confusion, black ns is not selvedge, and the sizing is the same as the indigo ns.
