Go for ps, and size down 1 or go true if you want a wider top and slimmer hem.
Easiest option is to try them on obviously.

Beginner question - I have a pair of New Cure which I want to get hemmed and maybe tapered.

Will the leg length and hem stretch with wear? If so, how do I know what length to have them hemmed to?

thigh definitely stretches, a bit on the calf but never really noticed the hem stretching. if you wanna be on the safe side i'd do a real small cold soak first to get it to shrink to what it will be after.

By the way there were some 27 and 26 waist New Standards in the Carhartt outlet at the weekend, off London Fields, for £60. One pair of 27s and three or four 26s. Really small in the seat for me (true 32) but if you're a true 28 or 30 you could squeeze into them and wear them in.

Just to clarify, there is no longer vanity sizing for both the PS or New Cure jeans? So the advice is to go TTS?

Right so I'm currently in a pair of TTS new cure, but they are at that transition point between office wear and casual wear, so I want another pair of APC.

This time around I want a slim/straight fit - what do I go for New Standard size down 2? or Petit Standard size 1?

MerciBeau, if you do please ask a member of staff regarding the vanity sizing so we can get confirmation on it and stick the answer in the main post so it isn't dragged up again and again. If it is true then they would have only changed it this season, but then their mainline denim (raw denim) isn't seasonal and is made year round so it would seem hard to phase it in.
