@mike-who, i was able to button them up fully but it was VERY difficult. I haven't really put a lot of wear into them but now they have finally stretched to my liking. if i had the money, i would definitely pick APC NS over these. I had a pair of NS down 3 and they were much more comfortable when they were broken in. Probably because they are a lighter denim.
@justsayray, im 5'5" and weigh 130.
@capt-baho, nice fit, dude.
Did you buy yours a while ago? I'm 5'6 135ish, and the tapers fit soooo much more baggier than your fit.
