ok so I'm confused again lol.
note that I'm a true size 29 waist.
APC's are vanity sized, correct? so size 27 new standard actually measures to a size 29 waist. Now, following the size down 2 rule for newstandards, if I were to get size 25 that would measure to a size 27 waist which will theoretically stretch out to a size 29 waist.
now, I went to the apc store and tried on a size 27 (before i found out they were vanity sized) just for reference. Size 27 fit exactly the way i wanted it to so I was assuming i should buy a size 26 nwe standard in the future so they stretch out to what I wanted. When i tried on size 26 newstandard (vanity sized to 28 waist) I couldn't button the top button, but I know they will stretch.
My question is, for the size down 2 rule do you size down two from your tagged size or the actual waist size? I don't want to buy a size 27 and have it stretch out too much or buy a size 25 and find out i sized down by 4. ?)
