when i washed my apc's... i washed them in the same hot water i soaked my warehouse jeans in... but added a little detergent... maybe i would've lost more color if i didn't do that...

wait, so you kept the water? Or did you like re-heat the water, or just water from the same tap?

Interesting concept, like the extra dye in the water from the SuFu 660's kept more dye on your APCs

you can try so many things, just be creative. the result can't be that bad. on the contrary, they can look even better after you tried something different. :)

total noob question:

I'm wearing a nudie SJ in 29 and I'm about to pick up some NC's. I think I could've bought the SJ's in 28 because they started to fit pretty baggy after breaking them in.This is how they look now:

I want the new cures to fit tighter than the SJ's but not too tight, and I dont know if I should go with 27 or a 28. Also,Is there any difference between the mens and womens model ? thanks in advance

The newbish answer (/cure-all answer) is to size down, as APCs are vanity sized. Given that your SJ were too big, I'd say go with a 27. APC markets their jeans as being fairly unisex, however, the Women's models tend to constitute the very very small waist sizes (I believe less than 26)

mtl20v: Those are sick. Nice work. I wish I hadn't hemmed my jeans as much as I did. Your stacks are amazing and the cuffs are still in pretty good shape. I was worried mine would get shredded so took them prett short.

So here's some better pics, only 4 and a half months one rinse:

Thanks for your response. I was aware that I have to size down, I just wasn't sure how much I had to. The apc online store only carries the men's model down to 28, so the only option for me is to take the women's model in 27, which would be ok if the cuts were exactly the same.

stretch allowance is pretty similar to the raw indigo, so get the same size you would in indigo.

They are a bit shredded at the bottom, but its mostly from wearing them in the house. when i wear shoes they VERY rarely touch the ground.

Thanks alot man!!

How much difference is the fit for NS from New Cure?

I'm 6'1 tall and slim. I usually wear levi's 501 size 32/34 with a slightly relaxed fit (501 is a bit weird because I got 3 pairs and one of them is pretty tight around the waist and thighs) I tried on my friend's brand new NC size 29, the waist fits a little bit tight but acceptable and the rise kinda kills my balls that it's impossible to sit. The legs are skin tight all the way and they don't look like they would stack much if at all. Perhaps it's because it sits on my actual waist instead of a bit lower.

All said, I just wanna know whether i should get 29 or 30 for NS.

yeah, so i was planning to post up fit pics of my new NCs tonight after getting them back from the tailor. however, upon opening the package this morning, i noticed the tailor didn't do a single thing to them. in fact, the needles were still left where the cuff was folded inwards when i tried the jeans on in front of them. So if you're in Manhattan, avoid Madame Paulettes at all costs. Look forward to next week though, when I post pics up, after having them sent to a much cheaper, and better tailor.

hmm. 27 might work. but 28 probably. try on both. if 27 doesnt crush your balls and joo can button top without too much trouble get dat size. if you cant try on and are buying via internet. get 27. this jean has massive stretching potential
