i'm 65kg/180cm, do you reckon a 27 in new cure would be too slim for me? normally wear 29/30(non-raw denim)

 

I'm a little bit taller and around 60 kg and my 27 new cures are pretty tight even after a couple months of wear. NC is sort of an odd cut though, wish I had gone PS.

 

edit: depends on whether you're buying new or old sizing though.

APC NS 29(sized down 1), wish I could've gotten a 28 but none were available in stock. These are my first pair of raw denim that are more legitimate than what I've owned in the past (Levis, Unbranded, GAP). So I'm really anxious to see how they'll turn out!

^ IMO I would definitely return them and wait for a 28. It isn't a horrid fit, but a size down would really help. Hell if you got a 27 you would be able to stretch them out to your size (they just would be uncomfortable at first).

No stores locally carry a size 28 in the NS. I already have a pair of raw denim that I'm breaking in as my slim fit, and expected this to be as my straight fit pair. I'm open for trial and error anyways, that's how I get to learn hands on.

 

EDIT:

Went ahead and just got PS 29, pics later.

They both look good.

 

I still don't see how some of you guys are getting yours to stretch so much. Do you guys try and force them to stretch? I don't do anything crazy but my PS has really only stretched in the waist but only by a half inch or so. I've got maybe 3 months of wear into them

All that progress is based on each wearer. I work at a skate shop and I'm constantly bending down and lifting heavy boxes in the stock room and then on top of that I skateboard. These jeans were pretty tight on the waist but by the end of the day I felt more comfortable.

 

EDIT

Does anyone know why I have that straight line crease on the back of the right leg (It's worse than this picture)? The cuffs keep twisting the right leg and I don't want to end up with a weird fade cause of it.

I wear a 34 in N&F and could just barely fit in an APC PS 32 (waist was perfect/thighs were a little tight). I think I'm gonna get the 32s and they will stretch out nicely

I sized down 3 for the NC, and 2 for the PNS. I'll take a fit pic of the PNS in a bit.

didn't bother reading through the thread (have enough clothing for now & don't want to tempt myself :ph34r: ) but I'm guessing the jeans are heavily starched for "better" stacking. they'll probably settle with wear.

The fit isn't terrible but it just looks kind of odd to me personally.

The leg just seems weird for some reason or another.

It could just be the way he's wearing them as well.

I got the Yeez in raw, sizing was definitely a PITA but I ended up going tts.. super low waist and saggy but gives a good fit if you're not rail thin like the usual APC customer..

Just got my first pair of APCs, skin tight through the leg but the lady at Barneys told me they'll stretch out in the  thigh and waist (as we all know) what I really wanted to ask about is cuffing. First of all do you guys cuff? And on my Levis 508s that I cuffed the cuff ended up being bigger than I wanted. If I cuff the apcs is the denim stiff enough that the cuff wont move around a lot?
