Crotch area is still tight
So the waist has already stretched out far enough but the crotch and thigh areas are still tight. Will it stretch? Has this happened to anyone?

How do you prolong a crotch blow? If you were asking the best way to prevent it, then the answer would be not to sag. Sagging can put significant tension on the denim in the crotch area and may cause an early blowout.

Anyways, my NCs just came in. =D I'm about 6'0'', 155-160ish I think, and was able to button them all the way up (albeit with considerable difficulty). I'll post fit pics in a few once they loosen up a bit.

I measured my waist and it's 33

I got tag 29 (waist is 31)

At first, I could button everything but it's difficult on the last one.

It stretched out A LOT and I'm able to button to last one comfortably. You should be fine. after 2 weeks, if not let us know.

Pics of fit? I'm trying to decide between the NS or PS and I have a 33" waist too.

Which jean is closer to Nudies Even Stevens?

EDIT - Nvm, saw your pic a few posts back. I think you're shorter than I am... (I'm 6')

Here's some fit pics. APC NC sz. 29...



Can someone tell me how much stretch they got on their NC's? I've worn these for 2 days and they've stretched about an inch.. im hoping I can squeeze another inch out on the waist and they'll be good.

If I were to get my jeans hemmed, do they redo the self edge? Or is it something I need to mention to them?

ktan09, i got these next pair of selvedge jeans tapered, and they just did it on the inner side, so the selvedge was not affected. seeing how ur just hemming them, they just sew the bottom half like normal pants.

if you get your jeans hemmed, maybe try to get them chainstitched since APCs aren't chainstitched. btw its selvage or selvedge, not self edge. that's a store.

zang, maybe u should soak em, but i would've just febreezed it. if u want to wash, just soak in tub, room temp water wit a bit of detergent, something to weight it down, and just dont touch it until u feel like its clean, then just hang dry. i think this would be least amount of indigo loss, but still cleaning the jeans. never use dryer cause it ruins the jeans by softenign up the cotton. always hang dry.
