Small DENIM Questions Thread

Dec 28, 2009 @ 12:02
Hey I just bought an used pair of Nudies off of someone, everything else fits fine but the ass part is stretched to shit. Is there a way to tailor them to make it smaller? I know that soaking and washing the jeans will shrink them, but I really dont want to resort to that since there are no fades yet.

My current situation is that one leg shrunk due to beach water after a trip.

My question is, if I machine wash them, will they shrink back to even lenght, or will they shrink to proportion and remain uneven? Should i wash in hot or cold? And if continues to be unproportional, or if above method won't work, then should I just soak the longe side? Or am I just fucked?


I'm gonna quote one more time. If no responses, then I'm on my own. =(

^either wash or soak doesnt matter, it'll even itself back up

Good lookin out.

Anyone beg to differ? If not, then soak it is.

will they shrink if you just put em into the dryer dry? to get them soft?


also i tried on some apcs today and need help on the sizing

how should i size on these?im thinking of getting new cures or petit standards

i tried on new cures and can button up all the way a 29 but its really tight

and i tried a 28 and can only do 1 button and i can wear a 27 in NS

what do you guys think?

how much will they stretch out and will they stretchout elsewhere too like the legs thighs?...

or do i go with a 30?

and do apcs bleed a lot?
Jan 02, 2010 @ 20:08
new cures get 29
petite standard get 28
Jan 02, 2010 @ 20:30
I usually wear a size 32, should I get a size 30 or 29 in petite standard ? I don't want the jeans to be skinny, just slim
Jan 02, 2010 @ 20:55
^ I'd say 30, sizing down 3 on PS will probably be way too tight.

my true waist is a 34 though
Jan 02, 2010 @ 21:42
^ You shouldn't be sizing down anywhere near that much if you are a true 34
Jan 02, 2010 @ 21:48
i can button up a 29 in new cures tho

and only 1 button on the 28's
Jan 02, 2010 @ 21:53
I'm 3 months into my weirdguys & was thinking of giving them a wash or soak, don't know which one.
Not really much fading going on but they're startin' to stankkk so yeah, what would be good?

Sounds like you might be confused about your true waist measurement then, because there should be no way you can size down 5 on NCs and still have them button up blinkyeyes

thanks blushing should i stick to 30 with the NC ?
Jan 03, 2010 @ 11:30
^ Probably, although some people will only size down one on the NC. Depends on the look/fit you are going for.

thats exactly what i was saying
hes saying apc store measured him and hes a 34
but he can fit into 29 nc
somethings wrong
Jan 03, 2010 @ 23:52
ok so i found out my true waist is a 31-32

and i got a size 30 in new cures

the smallest i could fit in was a 29 but they were tight

did i size right?
Jan 04, 2010 @ 00:10
^ sounds about right, the waist will stretch out a bit later on anyways.
Jan 04, 2010 @ 18:17
Yeah that makes a lot more sense, sounds like you got it right.

Is it best to soak all raw denims? I'm about to pick up some Sugarcane 47's, do I soak those?
Jan 05, 2010 @ 07:58
^only need to do initial soak if the denim is unsanforized, 47's r sanforized so no need
Jan 05, 2010 @ 11:23
The 47's are unsanforized. They do have one wash versions tho.

how do apc ns's fit compared to 501 stf? i wear stf but want a slimmer denim looking at ns sized down 2-3 or nc sized down 1. (skinny 5'4-5'5 115pds)
Jan 05, 2010 @ 16:10
do road salt damage denim? got a couple salt stains at the cuff area.

thinking about giving it a soak

NS sized down 2 is definitely slimmer than a 501 cut, just depends how slim you wanna go.

I've had it happen, doesn't seem to do very much. For the most part it comes out with some warm water, you probably don't even have to bother with a full soak.
Jan 05, 2010 @ 22:35
wait do i have to soak my apcs before wearing?
