shearers are roomier in the thighs but are still slim/skinny below the knee. its a slim fit but not too slim, but then again it largely depends on your body shape and how much you size down/up.

just check out the selfedge website for measurements


I sized 2 inch down, will it stretch atthe thigh to become baggy? cause its a bit tight at the moment...

dont see much goin on but they fit good

and btw which imperials have a nice slim straight leg fit shearers or dukes. I like my NS (sized down between 1.5-2) but I think i might get imperials next.

Dukes are more slim-straight. Shearers are more slim (and they're tapered). If you want to stick with the APC NS fit, the Dukes would be the most similar.

Anyone know what fit of Imperials would be most similar to a pair of APC Petite Standards? Not loose like NS, but not tight like NC. I just read that the NS fit like Dukes, but I saw a pair the other day and they looked like my kind of fit, not exactly sure though.

Dukes dont fit exactly like ns. They're a little slimmer. but the closest to PS would be shearers or sexi's.

I'm looking at getting a pair of black kings and seem to be in between sizes (34 and 36). so my question is how much will they shrink in the waist when washed in hot water and how much will they stretch in the waist and seat over time?

I assume the indigo kings will be different so I am specifically asking about the black kings.

Thanks

It depends on what kind of fit you want. If you want them slimmer, size down and they WILL stretch. If you want looser, get more true to size. Either way they will stretch unless they are like, wayy to big for you. So it comes down to what kind of fit you want.
hope that helps

so everyone here would agree that petite standards most similar fit in imperials after sexi04 are shearers?

I dont think I would be able to size these down. When I tried my normal size on the waist was ok but the seat was tight, so I would hope they would stretch there as well.

Anyone know how much the Black kings will shrink when washed in hot or cold water?

I have pretty muscular, big thighs too. Do the Shearers feel tight on your thighs?

I saw your fit, and it looks perfect. How tall are you?

PS - Could you post a fit pic with the Wallabees on? Thanks.

the shearers are made w/ bigger thighs. So they would probably be perfect for you^^
If you get a chance try them on somewhere to see if you like them but if not, yes the shearers have bigger thighs.

I sized down 2 for shearer, got 3 buttons buttoned at the beginning and had to wear it high up. After few months of 3/week wears its finally starting to get baggy like it is meant to be at the thigh.

whats imperials closest cut to the APC NS, the dukes? How should I size if I want the same fit as my APC NS (sized down 2)? I'm interested in a black pair if that makes a difference at all.
