the best and most efficient solution is going to a store YOURSELF and trying on the denim to see what fits best for YOU and what you like. if you're unsure, ask the person working at the store or read the tags on the jeans. i don't know why people don't just do this.
thats a pretty good idea. i was looking for an easier way to just do it at home and then shop online, but i guess i should go to the store and see how things fit. i just dont know where im going to go to shop because i dont think any stores near me carry APC or any of these other brands.
