and I'm not trying to be a douche either, but the Official APC thread is 600 pages long. And the entire thread is people all saying different things. Some say to take your actual waist measurement while others say to take the measurement of your best fitting pair of jeans. And then with the downsizing, everyone has a different opinion on whether it should be 1, 2, 3 or some even say 4. So its pretty confusing and overwhelming to someone who is looking for their first pair of raw denim. And when a noob asks for help from you guys, some of you jump down our throats for not knowing that the answer to our question was posted 285 pages ago.
general rule of thumb for
NS: size down 2 for slim, 3 for skinny if youre an average sized guy
NC: size down 1
PS: size down 2? from what i know, i don't remember much about PS lol but people generally size these like NS
and depending on how skinny you are you can work better with different fits
for my body type personally my calves dont even fit the NC, and I sized down 2/3 on my NS and they fit me pretty good imo... though i dont sag too much, from what i felt the thigh/calf didnt give too much, mostly its the waist that stretched.. thigh maybe an inch or so but everything else stayed pretty much the same
