Would these benefit from a hot soak or does that not matter with APCs? I have a feeling I could fit into 30's but that they may be a tad too tight. Which is worse.....a bit too loose or a bit too tight?
dont soak, they'll stretch back out after a wear or 2, there's no point you're just ruining the starch and indigo.
whats worse... probably too tight for your body tight, imo i think you should just wear those APCs. once the stacks settle and the denim gets softer (around a month), it'll look better, most likely.
oh and sag a bit when you can lol that helps
