The conventional wisdom is that you can size down 2 or 3 depending on whether you want a slim or skinny fit. So sizing down 2 is okay. Check first page.

as far as i know, you're wrong.

black new standards have been around for a year or two now. if you can dig it up, theres someone who posted a waywt with a pair of nicely faded black NS's about a year ago.

Well I guess I look like an idiot, sorry about that.

Can anyone fill me in on the stonewashed NC and NS? Better pictures of the denim please.

Have the Cures been renamed Narrow?

Rescues @ about 7 months. Washed twice. Soaked one other time. I think the color in the shot of the outter seam is probably the best representation of actual color. A nice blue.

Although they are sanforized I measured mine to be 34 after 2 hot soaks, and one hot machine wash. So basically they came up 2".

On here: You stonewash, You die!!!

99% of the time I agree, but the APC stonewash looks fairly decent.

bangbang, your black NS fits really really well.

So would you say they have a smilar amount of leg shrinkage to a pair of nudie? That's a fair bit for sanforized denim no?

I never had nudies, I was just putting what I measured out there. I wouldn't say thats the case every time, but I'm assuming people out there have had the same experience as me.

This has pry been mentioned,

but has anyone else noticed APC's price increase?

All jeans are now $155 (from $140).

That is shit, especially considering after snowboarding today,

I rip a gigantic hole in my New Cure's crotch.

All the websites mentioned on the FAQ don't seem to stock raw black NS apart from apc.fr. Anyone know any other stockists online?

Also, if anyones got a pair of 28 or 27s could they post a few measurements? (or sell them to me =P)

Cheers

Also, has anybody been to APC's website lately? Go to jeans>APC NS > black.

It seems to be programming error, does anybody know how to get a pair of APC blacks otherwise?

They're probably changing some things on their website. I'm sure it'll be looking fine in within a few days (if not less).

i just got a pair today, size 32, the stacking is a bit to much though, so i was thinking of a cold soak for about an hour and then let it hang dry. should i let it hang dry or should i put them in the dryer, and if i should put them in the dryer, how long should i leave it in for, i want the them to shrink.

thnx.

tag says to wash them at 30C which is a cold(ish) wash.

anything washed "hot" will shrink a bit.

try to stretch them out while their damp to their correct length.

My shop just got our first shipment of APC's and I grabbed the NS in the blue and black. Ive been wearing the blue NS in 29 for about 10 months now, and love em, there seems to be slight differences in the tags and buttons in the model i got then and the shipment we just got. I was wondering if anybody else has noticed any difference in the newer APC's.

I was also a bit sad to see the black NS weren't selvage denim. I thought they made them in selvage? The ones I got I sized up and got a 31 but the material is notciabley less stiff then the indigo models as well. just as a heads up and general info.
