I know i just posted pictures of my Rescues.. but they were bad. and i figured i'd post some that were more representative of the true color. I used flash, but it wasnt bright, and this camera is old.. and grainy. but the color is correct. Its what they look like under the flourescent light in my room =] Had these since april of last year i think.

Question:

I want to buy a pair of APC Rescue, but not sure how to size down. They say 2 sizes, but it depends on the jean on what size I wear. Levi's 501 a 36 fit's snug and Evisu 36 fit's an inch loose.

Would appreciate the help. Thanks!

I would get a 33 in your case, i'm a 33-34 waist and since I have huge thighs, I sized down to a 31, they were tight at first but stretched out like crazy. APC's are vanity sized mind you, so the actual waist is 2 sizes larger.

I wear a size 29 raw indigo selvedge new cures and they are perfect (when I first got them, I could barely button them up all the way, which is good because they stretched to the perfect size). However, I also want to get the raw black selvedge apc new standards (because new cures don't come in a raw black), should I get a 29 in the new standards raw black or a 28? thanks!
most people size the same with the blacks. apparently, they are the same or a little tighter usually, so go with what you have experience with. i'd go with 28, but i hear that the blacks take a little longer to stretch out due to the nature of the dye.
i must say the new standard stretches a hella lot. i usually wear a 32 and i bought a 29 used from yea and they're already getting a bit loose after only 2 weeks.... im still not sure about how much to size down but i agree that you cant go wrong with a smaller pair!

I guess I'm too late, but I'd say go to 28 for a slim fit.

I got a 29 stretched it out like crazy.

So I got the black raw new standards today in size 28. It's a very solid fit. I could probably size down 1 more if I really wanted to. It would probably hurt and take 5 mins to fully button the sucker, but I could (it kind of hurt to put on my new cures when I first bought them, but they are perfect now). Should I size down with these if I can or considering the nature of the dye, I should just leave them be? Thanks!

I saw the grey NS yesterday fo the first time - they looked kinda weird, they definitely arn't as nice of a wash as the grey NC that came out a year or two ago.

It's kind of a washed, rougher material, not really raw, and not thick as the old ones

you can get em in canada at havenshop.ca

Got my pair of black New Standards last week..

Same size as my New Cures, but these aren't stretching much at all.

Worn about twelve hours & slept in twice.

Looking forward to breaking them in, tho.

Black jeans in summer..

They arent going to stretch.

I was under the impression that they would stretch out just as much as indigo New Standards.. maybe a little less because of the black dye.

They stretch, just not as much as the indigo ones.

I wear a 31(stretch washes) /32 in Diesel (yeah, I know you guys hate em :-) and I;m just trying to figure out my proper sizing. Should I go for a 30w in New Standard? I'm just worried about the button fly stretching out and looking weird if I size down too much
