New pair of PS seem good quality still, not as good as few years back but not awful and definitely not 'soft'.
Albam are decent, don't rate their fit much though.

get them shortened and tapered to the leg opening you want then

Softer denim ≠ lower quality denim. Any brand can starch the fuck out of a pair of jeans.

APC Petit New Standard
If I take a 30 in New Standard and they have stretched a fair bit what size to go for in these? Cant try any on near me.

whats the advice with soaking before wearing, do/don't? thanks

APC denim is sanforized so it won't shrink/there is no point in soaking. All that will happen is that you will loose a bit of indigo.

quest is right, they only really shrink the amount they stretched (maybe a little bit extra but not enough to justify a soak)

in fact pre-soaking removes the starch which takes away the stiffness of the jeans. that'd affect the way the fades develop.

Wear them and they should loosen up a bit, but once they get skinny there isnt much movement that makes them loser - the waist will return to normal though.
